ABOUT THIS CONCERT

Festival of Carols is back... with a twist. For the very first time, we are including a special guest artist to help us usher in the holiday season with traditional Christmas carols and festive folksongs from around the world. Jonathan Antoine, who earned international acclaim after his appearance on Britain's Got Talent, with what became the world's most viewed television audition of any performer in history, brings a quality, feeling and authenticity into his performances that reaches out and draws you into the music. It is a family-friendly concert and we welcome children six years and above.

 
RUN TIME: 110 minutes with intermission
