Carols by Candlelight 2019
The Festive season began in earnest with the annual Carols by Candlelight concert hosted at St Luke’s Church on Tuesday evening in aid of St. George’s School, Ethiopia.
It was truly a wonderful programme of music, words and carols and we were so pleased to have the patron of NAEF, HRH Princess Beatrice of York and her fiancé in attendance.
The London Nordic Choir began the evening with the atmospheric and traditional candlelit Lucia procession. They were joined on stage by the award-winning mezzo soprano, Friedereke Krum who not only wowed with her voice but brought a glamorous touch to the evening, as did soprano, Alys Roberts from Opera Holland Park.
We also welcomed performances from Game of Thrones actress, Natalie Emmanuel, renowned author Nadia Cohen and a moving piece inspired by WW1 composed by Adrian Munsey.
The Northwood schools’ choirs and adult choir delighted the audience with their singing. Bea Conrad, winner of the Broomwood Hall poetry competition read her poem beautifully.
