Joy to the World, a musical celebration full of classical and popular Christmas favourites presented by the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, under its Principal Conductor David Brophy, with internationally acclaimed soprano Cara O’Sullivan and Irish chamber choir New Dublin Voices. The concert will include much-loved Christmas songs including Winter Wonderland, White Christmas, Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire, excerpts from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker and much more.
Cara O’Sullivan, one of Ireland’s premier sopranos will sing festive classics such as O Little Town of Bethlehem, Hark, the Herald Angels Sing and Silent Night. Orchestral offerings of Christmas Fantasy and Sleigh Ride are sure to sound even more atmospheric in the peaceful setting of St Patrick’s Cathedral. Harry’s Wondrous World, one of the recognisable pieces from the movie Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, will delight younger audience members while no Christmas concert is complete without a rendition of Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.
