Our FINAL 2013 Christmas Concert -- this Wednesday, Dec 18th at St. Columba Church, Ottawa

Our gorgeous 2013 poster designed by Tom Barnes
  Tickets for our final concert of the 2013 Christmas singing season are available online here, and at a number of local retailers, $15.00 in advance, $20.00 at the door. No reserved seating, children 12 and under free.

If you are new to our concert style, it isn't a caroling sing-along (except for the encore) but is family-friendly and appropriate for all ages able to enjoy a full length concert. Each set is about 45 minutes with a 15 minute intermission. We sing a cappella, multi-part and in many languages. Songs range from the Renaissance to Modern carol compositions. 
Concert at Knox Presbyterian last Saturday
Many of the carols in this year's programme are original arrangements by the director of the Stairwell Carollers, Pierre Massie.

NOTE: We don't sing Christmas songs about Santa or other similar winter themes. Pierre has chosen to focus on true Carols centered on the birth of Christ and celebration of the the spirit of Christmas.
