Carols at the House

An elegant celebration of Christmas on a symphonic scale

Carols at the House decks the Concert Hall with the brilliance of baroque trumpets and sublime choruses by Handel and Bach and opulent versions of familiar carols inspired in the fabulous arrangements by Robert Shaw that have provided the soundtrack to Christmas for generations.

Conductor Brett Weymark has added a few surprises in the form of delightful music from stage and screen, story-telling, some sublime silliness and, of course, audience participation.

Acclaimed Australian opera star Teddy Tahu Rhodes lends his rich baritone to the proceedings.
