Join the Guelph Chamber Choir for their popular annual Christmas Lessons & Carols concert! The merriment includes a festive brass quintet with regional musicians Kevin Swinden and Julia Vaughan on trumpets, Tony Snyder on horn, John Monkhouse on trombone, and Eric Probst on tuba. Gerry Manning will helm St. George’s mighty 1926 Casavant pipe organ, featuring over 3,000 pipes, and our own Alison MacNeill will join in on piano.

An interesting feature of the afternoon will be an Arabic Christmas song, Laylat al Meelad, featuring mezzo-soprano Natalie Fasheh, a Palestinian-Jordanian community-engaged artist, singer, choral conductor, arranger, and poet.

This concert is great for all ages and is a perfect way to enter into the Christmas season.
