The Christmas special concert will take place in the Galway Cathedral on Sunday (December 11 ) in aid of the Galway Simon Community.
‘The Knights Before Christmas’ special will be hosted by The A Capella Knights, and will include a children’s concert at 3pm, with the main concert taking place at 7.45pm.
The children’s concert will welcome Irish dancers from the Hession School of Dance and the choir from Claddagh National School. The main concert will see The A Capella Knights joined by special guests The Bluebirds, the Hession School of Dance and the Simon Music Project. Both concerts will celebrate Christmas through a wide variety of festive music, both traditional and contemporary. The music will be a colourful mix of a capella vocals, instrumentalists, soloists, and choral music.
Tickets for both concerts cost €15 and children under 12 are free to the children’s concert when accompanied by an adult.
Tickets can be purchased online at www.galwaysimon.ie, from Galway Simon’s office on the Tuam Road, or from the shops on Sea Road and in the Briarhill Business Park.
