Join us for an evening of toe-tapping, down home Christmas music written or popularized by The Barra MacNeils (Carol of the Bells), The Rankin Family (The Christmas Star), Stan Rogers and Rita MacNeil (Now the Bells Ring). The fun program will also feature traditional jigs and reels.

Taking the stage will be St. Andrew’s superb Gallery Choir: Allison Angelo, Carrie Wiebe, Elizabeth Forster, Diane English, Keith Klassen, Lucas Kuipers, Mark Wilson and Bradley Christensen. They’ll be joined by the Jordan Klapman Quintet and Celtic fiddler Alana Cline.

About Music at St. Andrew’s

Music at St. Andrew’s is a community outreach program of historic St. Andrew’s Church in downtown Toronto. We present top flight, affordably priced (and free) concerts and multimedia events. Our music program was inspired by the church’s 2011 purchase of a Bösendorfer Imperial grand piano, which we share with the greater community. The magnificent piano has been used extensively in our free, mostly classical Friday Noontime Recitals, launched in 2013.


Our thanks to the New Classical 96.3 FM for their promotional support of this and other Music at St. Andrew’s events.
