During the Christmas period, there is plenty to do in our villages, especially when it comes to carols! There are various Christmas concerts, festivals and other musical events, perfect to get you in the festive mood.
The Hoornder church hosts 2 Christmas concerts, namely the Haarlem singing collective Barbers and Bischop and the Music Society D.E.K. Both have a varied programme of both well-known and traditional Christmas songs. In addition, the Smartlappenkoor organises an atmospheric Christmas Eve in village hall De Waldhoorn, led by Let de Ruyter and with Willem Moor on drums. There will also be a performance by musical theatre duo Hans Dagelaat & Esther Apituley in the church De Vermaning.
No fewer than three different Christmas events will be held at the Maartenskerk. Art school Artex is organising the Christmas Carols workshop. To show what the participants have learned, they will give a Christmas concert. Music Society Excelsior will also give a Christmas concert led by Niels Ket. There will also be a lecture by Geertje de Vries, with images, music and singing.
A Festival of Lessons and Carols will be sung by the Artex chamber choir in the Burghtkerk. During the Festival, Christmas songs will be sung based on English choral traditions. Not only the chamber choir, but also Artex's World Choir will give a Christmas concert in Artex's anteroom. During the concert, Christmas and winter songs will be sung from different countries accompanied by Folkband Folky Vibes.
