Enjoy this special online concert in the comfort of your own home. Our festive collection of recorded performances will feature songs celebrating Christmas, Hanukkah and Winter Solstice. Themes of light and sound will be featured — think brass and bells! You’re invited to sing along and enjoy the holiday spirit.

Directed by Shawn Grenke, the concert will include our Collaborative Pianist Nancy Sicsic, the Trillium Brass Quintet, the Westminster Bell Choir, and a string ensemble. Shawn will chat with renowned Canadian choral composer Eleanor Daley, and various choir members will introduce songs virtually from their homes.

The concert will appear on Achill Choral Society’s private YouTube channel and is free of charge. As this concert is a ticketed YouTube event, it can only be accessed via the free supplied link.
