Some of the Christmas Carols will be familiar – O Holy Night, – you will even get the chance to sing along with We Three Kings, Once in Royal David’s City and the 12 Days of Kiwi Christmas!
Our guest is Tainui Koru – an internationally renowned singer – who grew up in Ashburton. In fact, the Mid Canterbury Choir gave him his first musical opportunity when he sang the part of Amahl in “Amahl and the Night Visitors” in 2004 – Tainui was just 11 years old then! The choir has watched his career blossom and were absolutely thrilled when he agreed to sing with us at all three concerts – he will be in Ashburton to sing with “Cabernet”.
We will also welcome clarinet player Greta Calvert from Geraldine High School to join the choir to play Clear Was the Night.
Along with the entry price of $5 (tickets available on the day at the door) we ask you for a gift of food for the Foodbank.
We hope folk will take time out from their busy Christmas preparations to enjoy this concert – a way to remember the true meaning of Christmas.
