On December 15, a special collaboration will bring together a professional ensemble comprising eight singers and St. Thomas’ choir to present Carols by Candlelight, the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols in the style of King’s College, Cambridge, with Christmas choral works and traditional carols.
“It will be slightly different this year,” explains Francine. “Because we can no longer rehearse on a long-term basis with the choral academy, we have expanded the number of musical offerings so that the professional ensemble will sing intricate choral pieces and join the choral academy for more traditional carols. This will give the audience more opportunities to participate as well. We are excited, as it will actually match the format of King’s College even more closely!”
The Lessons and Carols are very dear to the artistic directors’ hearts. While they also produce other concerts, they only prepare one Carols by Candlelight, and it is Belleville’s one.
Cost: Free will offering
