The Cadenza Christmas concert is a lighthearted affair, with a repertoire which includes ancient and modern carols as well as the old favourites – some of which are performed in fun arrangements, as you’ve never heard them before! There is also an opportunity for the audience to sing with the choir in some traditional carols.
