Leiden English Choir

Welcome

Christmas concert

Christmas matinee Leiden English Choir. Marekerk, December 18, 2021

It was a pleasure to be able to give our traditional Christmas concert! Supported by Anna Marieke Zijlstra on oboe and Takashi Mizumoto on piano, and conducted by Hebe de Champeaux, we were able to present an attractive program. The program included Three Nativity Carols by Paulus, White Winter Hymnal by Pecknold with body-percussion and a jazzy performance of ‘Rudolf, the Red-nosed Reindeer’. The audience could softly hum along to classics such as ‘Stille Nacht’ and ‘Noel’. There was limited seating in the church, but hundreds of people around the world were able to enjoy the concert via a live stream. The Leids Dagblad wrote this about it: see picture.

Comments from the audience:

“Very beautiful and professional”

“The music was beautiful, how wonderful the men in Rudolf! And the percussion in white winter hymnal, really impressive perfect!”

“…as if angels were singing.”
