The annual Christmas Concert presented by Gauteng Opera has become a tradition in Gauteng and this year these concerts will take place in Gauteng Opera’s own Tin Town Theatre situated in the historical part of Johannesburg – Ferreirasdorp. Once again, Gauteng Opera will ring in the Festive Season with the beautiful and all-knowing Christmas melodies audiences came to love over the years. This year Gauteng Opera will get back to basics and the concert will be accompanied by Andrew Duncan on piano and keyboard only, but we believe that will not dampen the Spirit of the Festive Season.
These special concerts for the whole family will include favourites such as Joy to the World, O come all ye faithful, White Christmas, The first Noël, Inkosi Jesu, O Holy Night and more unknown, but beautiful melodies such as Susani, Gesu bambino, Ave verum corpus, to name a few. All the artists of Gauteng Opera will take part in the concert and we have our young junior-trainees and a few members of the ad hoc chorus also joining a very special event.
As in past years’ tradition, Gauteng Opera will once again donate all collected presents to a deserving Children’s home, so we implore our patrons to bring an unwrapped gift for children from the age of new-born to 18, between the value of R100 to R150.
Come and experience the stirring melodies of the Festive Season with Gauteng Opera!
