The spirit of the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, the outstanding Brandenburg Choir and the joyful celebration of the holiday season make Noël! Noël! one of our most popular concerts of the year.
This year, our Artistic Director Paul Dyer introduces bright young star, Madison Nonoa, a soprano from New Zealand, who will make her Brandenburg debut with us this series.
Paul says "Everyone will remember the first time they hear this magnificent young voice. Madison is certainly a star on the rise."
One of the most popular Brandenburg traditions, Noël! Noël! touches on the religious but is firmly grounded in the spiritual. Audiences love to hear the Brandenburg performing O Come All Ye Faithful and Stille Nacht, but Paul always includes music that moves people of all faiths and beliefs. There's always something fun and Paul likes to throw in some twists to give each Christmas something special.
These concerts are always popular and are selling quickly, book now and don't miss out!
Noël! Noël! Fill your heart with cheer.
