The Performance

Music Director Gemma New conducts one of Hamilton’s favourite holiday traditions! We are joined by the Hamilton Philharmonic Youth Orchestra and the Hamilton Children’s Choir for a joyful occasion of music and togetherness. Featuring classic carols and holiday favourites, this is one festive celebration you won’t want to miss. 

Join us for the Inside the Music: Pre-Concert talk with Composer-in-Residence Abigail Richardson-Schulte and Co-host Ella McIntosh (HPYO Concertmaster) beginning at 2pm in the Great Hall!

Donations of a non-perishable food item for Hamilton Food Share are welcome and will be collected in the front lobby by the Christmas Tree.

Include this concert in your 22-23 Subscription package.
