Annual Civic Christmas Carol Concert set for Dec. 12

Posted on Tuesday December 05, 2017

Join the City of St. Catharines for a traditional Christmas concert and let the sounds of the season set the tone for the holidays.

The City presents the 27th Annual Civic Christmas Carol Concert Tuesday, Dec. 12 at St. Thomas Church. The St. Catharines Civic Brass Ensemble will join with some of the best young singers in the city to perform classic Christmas carols. Concertgoers are encouraged to sing along with the performers.

Peter M. Partridge will conduct this year’s choirs from Laura Secord Secondary School and Holy Cross Catholic Secondary School. City by-law enforcement officer Ross Stretton, who volunteers to organize the Civic Christmas Carol Concert, will be the organist. Elisabeth Zimmermann, executive director of YWCA Niagara Region, will offer her perspective on the meaning of Christmas as guest speaker.

Doors open at 11:30 a.m. The concert begins at noon. Admission is free. Donations will be accepted on behalf of Community Care of St. Catharines and Thorold.

Since 1990, the Civic Christmas Carol Concert has helped residents usher in the holiday season and raised about $100,000 for Community Care of St. Catharines and Thorold.

St. Thomas Church is located at 99 Ontario St. For more information, visit
