Noël! Noël! Follow Your Star


Bring your friends, bring your family and surround yourself with the true spirit of Christmas in a unique and heart-warming concert.

Hear the glorious Brandenburg Choir herald the spirit of the season with divine carols and joyous noëls that have been carefully curated by Artistic Director Paul Dyer from 700 years of magical and moving music inspired by the Christmas tradition.

Sparkling young soprano Bonnie de la Hunty will join the choir and orchestra for the first time to perform some incredibly beautiful arias, Renaissance songs and favourite carols. Expect to be surprised, expect to be moved and prepare to be thoroughly uplifted for the start of the holiday season.

Follow your star this December and discover the sheer delight and joy of Noël! Noël!
