Faculty announces Christmas carol concert date
The Faculty of Advocates Choir will give its traditional charity carol concert on Tuesday 18 December.
As it has done since 1996, the choir will perform all the seasonal favourites in aid of Edinburgh’s homeless.
The concert takes place on Tuesday 18 December at 7pm in St Andrew's and St George's West Church, George Street, Edinburgh. Admission is free but a collection will be taken for Edinburgh City Mission which, over the years, has received thousands of pounds from the concerts.
Sheriff Ross Macfarlane QC, the choir’s artistic director, commented: "We had no idea when we started that the Christmas concert would become such an institution in Edinburgh and we're delighted to do this for such a good cause. We urge people to come along and experience the real spirit of Christmas.”
Founded in 1996, the choir has performed in venues including St Peter’s Basilica in Rome, St Mark’s Basilica in Venice, Notre Dame in Paris, and Off-Broadway in New York.
