Della Robbia ChoirChristmas is a time to enjoy special experiences, and annually with their stunning Noël Noël concert, the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra (ABO) ensures their patrons, sponsors and supporters enjoy a Merry Christmas with a special night out second to none.

The First Noel, the Angels did say
Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay
In fields where they lay keeping their sheep
On a cold winter’s night that was so deep.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel!

First published in 1823, The First Noel is today considered a traditional English carol. It has been sung down the years by many famous singers, including Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Whitney Houston, Josh Groban, Lady Antebellum and many more.

Jesus, Joseph & MaryIt tells the story of the Nativity of Jesus, described in The Bible in the Gospel of Luke 2:2-21 at a period of the year when it is time to talk about the birth and life of Jesus of Nazareth and listen to the Christmas Message of caring, courage, compassion and love.

emma BirdsallPaul DyerABO Artistic Director noted that …’with me, there’s always a bit of a twist, a lovely surprise and an adventure into the unexpected. This year I’m introducing one of most exciting young singers I’ve heard in recent years.’

Now a tradition on the Australian musical scene, this year the guest artist will be the very lovely singer-songwriter Emma Birdsall who became a rising star when she became a finalist on The Voice Australia in 2012.

The artistic tradition in Baroque music was born of an exciting free imagination. It achieved a complete medium of expression as well as the highest pinnacle of achievement in a climate seldom granted to any other generation.

Christmas-StarThey looked up and saw a star
Shining in the East beyond them far
And to the earth it gave great light
And so it continued both day and night.
Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel!
