The Parlour

'Tis the season... for humbug & Happiness

Join this happy septet of musicians for a summer concert celebrating both traditional seasonal fare and a bit of Christmas down under, in music and story ranging from highlights of Handel’s Messiah and other traditional favourites to contemporary Christmas music, along with Christmas literary gems, both old and new! There’s something for everyone in this concert that will celebrate the joy of the season in song and rhyme. 

The featured artists will include the fabulous Parlour favourites such as Karen Van Spall (mezzo-soprano), Adam Miller (baritone), Christian Smith (baritone), Doug Kelly (tenor) and Julie Houghton (contralto), and with exciting young soprano Piera Dennerstein, all accompanied by the brilliant organist and pianist Calvin Bowman, with Julie Houghton as compere and storyteller.
