VOICE OF AN AN­GEL TO HER­ALD CHRIST­MAS

Herald Sun - - NEWS - CATHER­INE LAM­BERT

CHRIST­MAS car­ols de­serve the most elab­o­rate treat­ment pos­si­ble.

Greta Brad­man brings her own grace and splen­dour to clas­sic car­ols such as Silent Night, O Come, all ye Faith­ful and Hark! The Her­ald An­gels Sing, ac­com­pa­nied by the Mel­bourne Sym­phony Or­ches­tra.

“I ab­so­lutely cher­ish time with my fam­ily at Christ­mas; it means spe­cial mu­sic and fam­ily tra­di­tions; it means cher­ries and seafood and let­ting the world stand still for a day,” Brad­man said.

“As for the MSO Christ­mas con­certs, it’s like Mel­bourne gets to step in­side the most stun­ning Christ­mas mu­sic box for a time, along­side world-class mu­si­cians, where lighter tra­di­tional Christ­mas songs and car­ols are brought to life.

“The mu­sic ar­range­ments are ut­terly gor­geous, and it wouldn’t be Mel­bourne without some play­ful mo­ments for the whole fam­ily along the way.”

There will also be ver­sions of much-loved songs, Jin­gle Bells, White Christ­mas and Ru­dolph the Red-Nosed Rein­deer to wel­come the ar­rival of Santa.

Christ­mas with the MSO is at Hamer Hall to­day at 1pm and 5pm.
