VOICE OF AN ANGEL TO HERALD CHRISTMAS
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.
