Christmastide arrived at Ballarat and what a celebration it was!
What a privilege and joy to perform in the beautiful setting of the Art Gallery of Ballarat.
Thank you to those who came out to watch us.
The twelve days of Christmas is a joyous time filled of festivity with feasting, gifts and ceremony. Did you know that carols began as round dances, performed with religious songs? Rich and poor alike, we sing and dance them at many festivals of the Church, including Easter, and especially at Christmas.

We wish everyone happy holidays and hope you will come watch us again in 2019.
