Opening Night Sponsors for Lights Of Christmas

Catholic Cemeteries + Crematoria is delighted to sponsor the opening night concert of The Lights of Christmas, featuring acclaimed international tenor Friar Alessandro in his first concert in Australia.

Date: Thursday 5th December 2019
Time: 7.30pm – Friar Alessandro sings on the steps of St Mary’s Cathedral, College Street, Sydney

Friar Alessandro will sing a collection of Christmas carols on the opening night of this year’s 10th anniversary of The Lights of Christmas at St Mary’s Cathedral, Sydney. The light show this year will not only highlight The Christmas Story, but will also feature many of the memorable animations from previous years, along with the popular Madonna and Child segment.

Friar Alessandro lives in the small town of Assisi, the birth and resting place of St Francis of Assisi, who founded the Franciscan order. He went on to become the first friar to land a deal with a major record label and is often called the Voice from Assisi. Friar Alessandro’s rich tenor voice has been heard in cathedrals and concert halls throughout Europe, the UK and the USA.

Friar Alessandro will undertake his longest flight ever when he comes to Sydney to sing at the opening night of this year’s The Lights of Christmas. He will be joined by Australian international concert pianist Vivian Choi, who will return from New York for the event and the Artes Christi choir and orchestra.

“I have heard about The Lights of Christmas and am very excited about singing for all of you,” he said.
