With so many wonderful Christmas songs to choose from, what will the show feature (e.g classic and contemporary tunes?)
This year, we have chosen a selection of traditional Christmas carols that cannot be missed for a Christmas concert. One of our major focuses is the support of Silver Memories, the well known nostalgic music program in the aged care sector. It is vital to play music people know and love - especially at Christmas.
We all have a soundtrack to our lives, and Christmas plays a big part in the soundtrack to so many. We are hoping the audience will sing along nice and loudly - we love hearing them sing!
However, alongside the traditional carols we all love at Christmas time, we also are featuring some more contemporary Christmas songs including a special duet written by Queensland's own Rick Price, that I will be singing together with special guest JD Smith (The Ten Tenors).
Something extra special this year: I will be premiering a new Christmas song written by Australian composer Katie Hardyman. The song is called Snowflake and it has been nominated at the Hollywood Music in Media Awards and we are so looking forward to premiering this new work in Brisbane!
The City Hall is a magnificent Brisbane building in itself, so what will it be like to perform in this venue and for the audience to experience?
With such an iconic building as the backdrop, the audience are in for a real treat visually. We have some of the best people on audio-visual to make the Brisbane City Hall light up and really this historic building plays a large part in this concert. It is so wonderful that we can all come together again at Christmastime to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year.
For a "Christmas Spectacular" we really have to go all out of course - and we have!!! I am so thrilled to have on stage with me the Brisbane Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Chen Yang. We have three choirs from the Vocal Manoeuvres academy including a children's choir. My special guests are JD Smith (The Ten Tenors), Craig Martin (The Beatles Swing), 13 year old violinist Ein Na (Winner of the QYO National Youth Concerto Competition) and perhaps we might even see a little drummer boy pass by.
With such a huge cast and crew we are all thrilled to be performing this special Christmas Matinee concert together at the iconic Brisbane City Hall.
