Starting this weekend—don’t miss the annual Voices International Christmas concerts, a tradition that all the family can enjoy! Voices International, a 50-member choral group based in Luxembourg, will perform its Christmas 2009 repertoire in four churches around the Grand Duchy this Friday and Sunday (Dec. 4th and 6th), and the following weekend (Dec. 12th and 13th). There is no charge for admission to these concerts, but contributions will be gratefully accepted. The group donates the proceeds of its concerts to children’s charities around the world.
Founded in 1997, this choral group thrives on diversity – a diversity that ranges from the styles and languages of the music they sing to the 20 different nationalities represented amongst their members. The group will present its Christmas selections in Luxembourg Ville and its surrounding villages – starting out in the Niederanven Church (Friday 4th), then St. Jean in the Grund (Sunday 6th), Bonnevoie Church (Saturday 12th), and finally Koerich Church (Sunday 13th). Each of these venues offers its own unique architectural style, ambience and acoustic properties.
As always, this seasons repertoire covers a wide range of musical styles (rock, classical, jazz, traditional and spiritual) and languages. Christmas favourites from around the world that will set the mood for the holiday season!
