It was an evening of music, colour and movement as the Cathedral Choir of the Risen Christ, accompanied by the Cathedral Chamber Consort, presented its annual Christmas concert at St Joseph’s Church, Victoria St.
Titled Prince of Peace, the Dec 14 event saw the choir singing and dancing to a range of carols and songs, from the traditional to the modern, and in different languages.
The 800 guests in the audience included President Tony Tan and his wife, Mary, Archbishop William Goh and diplomats from various countries.
One highlight of the concert was the placing of ornaments on a Christmas tree by Dr Tan and the diplomats to symbolise peace.
During the concert, prayers and blessings were offered by Archbishop Goh and Vicar General Msgr Philip Heng.
The concert was also to raise funds for the Cathedral of the Good Shepherd and St Joseph’s Church.
Choral director Sir Dr Peter Low informed the audience at the end of the concert that the event managed to raise some $40,000.
