The Christmas Party for Special Children has been held around Australia for more than 22 years. This special carnival of a day gives children with special needs, their families and carers the opportunity to enjoy a day full of Christmas-y fun and excitement. This event also provides our Junior Choir an invaluable opportunity to perform outside the realm of NBCA-hosted events.
Late last year, Party organisers were again enthusiastic in inviting our Junior choristers for a second year. In their words, our participation helps ‘give attending children and their families a truly magnificent day’.
Our choristers felt privileged to perform Christmas pieces across two brackets led by artistic staff Alexandra Boemo, Mandy Lyn Brook and Ben Taylor. Despite the warm weather, both choirs performed solidly to a seated outdoor audience.
