Christmas Celebration 2019 – ‘Comfort & Joy’ finale success

It was a full Grand Hall of The City Halls, Candleriggs, Glasgow on Saturday night, 21 December, to listen and witness the final Christmas Celebration presentation with The Celebration Choir and Orchestra.

The evening got under way at 7.30pm with a musical look over the past 10 years of Christmas Celebration concerts and presentations. Plenty of musical memories from the presentations at the SECC Glasgow and the Strathclyde Suite of The Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.

After the interval which included an opportunity to visit the charity partner stalls in and around the foyer, it was the main presentation and the final Christmas Celebration 2019: ‘Comfort & Joy’ led by musical director Andrew Polson with the hundred plus Celebration Choir and the Orchestra.

Andrew Polson commented: “What a fantastic weekend we had at our FINAL Christmas Celebration concerts. The City Halls in Glasgow was packed out and a wonderful spirit amongst all. Thanks to all the Choir members who have worked so hard over 10 years. Hope you all have a very Happy Christmas and a blessed New Year!”
