Live Classical Music
Plymouth Symphony Orchestra members were delighted to join other local groups for the Lord Mayor’s virtual Christmas Carol Concert.
The Lord Mayor of Plymouth hosted a virtual Christmas Carol Concert on Friday the 18th December for everyone to enjoy from home.
The concert was recorded at the Minster Church of St Andrew, Plymouth Guildhall and Marine Academy Plymouth (MAP).
Led by Reverend Joe Dent, Rector at St Andrew’s, the concert included performances from the church choir and Plymouth Symphony Orchestra, as well as the MAP School Choir and the Council’s staff choir, the ‘Sound Council’.
The Lord Mayor said: “2020 has been a pretty challenging year for us all and I know many will be hoping to spend some precious time with at least some of their loved ones this Christmas”.
“I wanted to share this year’s Carol Concert with everyone so they can join together for a bit of fun and festive joy – and hopefully sing along to their favourite carols from the comfort of their sofas!”
