As part of the festive season, the Parish of St Paul’s Durban will be hosting a Christmas Concert on December 18, featuring an interesting mix of music guaranteed to create good cheer. The St Paul’s Choir, under the directorship of organist and choirmaster Melvin Peters, will sing well-known anthems composed by John Rutter and Dale Wood.

Songs that will be featured include renditions of Jesus Child and Angels Carol, both of which were written by John Rutter. To help celebrate the occasion in style, the St Paul’s Choir will be joined by choristers from other local churches.

The second half of the concert will feature the Melvin Peters Quartet playing jazz versions of select Christmas carols. Carols with a jazz twist!! As an added bonus, they will be joined by popular vocalist Haylea Hounsom Heyns who is currently appearing in Kickstart’s production of Sleeping Beauty at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre.
