One week before Christmas the Sydney University Graduate Choir joined with the Sydney Community Choir and the Central Coast Chorale (conducted by Christopher Bowen), Waitara Voices (from Waitara Public School, conducted by Jenny Bell), and the joyous soprano voice of Elke Hook, to sing in the now traditional performance of carols (old and new) punctuated by readings at the Sydney Town Hall.

This annual event is produced by the City of Sydney, to a program conceived by Robert Ampt.

Accompaniment was brilliantly provided by the Royal Australian Navy Band – Sydney (director of music Lieut. Steven Stanke), the harp (Jayne Hockley) and the spectacular Sydney Town Hall organ (played by Robert Ampt).

Eager crowds queued around the block and the Town Hall quickly filled to capacity.
