Voices International’s annual Christmas concerts have become an integral part of the holidays for many people, and with reason.
One of Luxembourg’s best-known and longest established vocal choirs, Voices International produces two concert series every year--one in the summer and one for the period just before Christmas. The advent programme, this year titled Silent Night, hits just the right note by featuring a wide range of styles from sacred to pop and in a wide range of languages too, and they do it with style and pizzazz.
A truly international group, their main language is English, but they always include songs from many of the members’ homelands--and they hail from 34 different countries.
The community choir practices throughout the year and their hard work pays off. Everything is memorized and choreographed--making for an energetic and entertaining show choir who will knock your Christmas stockings off.
Entrance to the concerts is free, but donations will be collected in aid of children’s charities.
If you don’t get to catch the performance this weekend, an additional concert is scheduled for Friday December 13 at the Eglise de Strassen and Saturday December 14 at the Eglise Saint Jean in Luxembourg-Grund.
