Christmas is coming and we're starting planning for our festive events. Our annual lunchtime Christmas Concert in @firstchurchbelfast is back on 30th November and tickets are available to book on our website. Come and listen to some seasonal music including arias, songs and carols in one of Belfast's most historic buildings. You'll hear performances by tenor Aaron O'Hare @aj.ohare , a previous Glenarm Festival of Voice winner and 'Schaunard' in our 2021 production of 'La Boheme', with three members of our new Chorus Development Programme: soprano @susan_shepherd27 , mezzo Jenny Bourke and baritone Matthew Jeffrey with pianist @tristanrusscher. Tickets are £10, doors open at 1pm and the concert will run from 1.15-2pm: take a break from Christmas shopping or enjoy a musical lunch hour right in Belfast's city centre. Buying a ticket will help support our development programmes for young artists and you might get a mince pie or two as well! We're also performing at the @belfastcitycouncil Christmas Lights Switch On: come and listen to our a capella carollers on 19th November, popping up in several locations including 2 Royal Avenue (the old Tesco Building) on the main stage. This event is free.
