It’s joyful and intense. Sacred and secular. Modern and ancient. Cheerful and solemn. Deeply moving and uplifting. There could be a cornetto, a saxophone, a pop singer, some hip action. It’s carols and entertainment. Family and friends. You never know what you might get, but you know it will carry all the wonder and surprise of Christmas, with all the sentiment of the season.
It’s a special celebration we all hold dear.
It’s Noël! Noël!
Our special guest artist this year is Joel Parnis, who caught Paul's attention at the opening night of My Fair Lady Australia, having taken over the role of Freddy Eynsford-Hill from Mark Vincent and been directed by Dame Julie Andrews.
“Tenor Joel Parnis had taken over the role of Freddy from Mark Vincent and made a massive impression on me. He totally seized the moment and I was captivated by his commanding stage presence, incredibly beautiful tone and ability to draw the audience in with each word. I knew by interval that I needed to sign him up for NOËL! NOËL!”
