Dear music-lover,

Child’s Play India Foundation is pleased to invite you to our 10th Anniversary Christmas Concert. This  concert will be full of good cheer and traditional Christmas music and will feature the Child’s Play Chorus, Camerata Child’s Play India and Goa’s well-known sacred music choir Aradhon in a rare North Goa concert on Saturday 7 December 2019 at 6 pm at Menezes Braganza hall Panjim.

Donation passes at Furtados Music stores, and also at the door just before the concert. 

We launched our ambitious Cello Project in 2018 to create a new generation of cellists in India. We are pleased to report that the work that began last year continues to flourish. We will have some of our beginner and intermediate cello students performing at the concert as well. We have many new students (including adult learners) who have taken up the cello in September this year and we look forward to having them with us at our next concert.

The concert also features the Child’s Play chorus singing an array of Christmas carols and songs, some of them in English, Konkani and Portuguese. As you know, Omar de Loiola Pereira has been working with our choir for many months and we are pleased to showcase their efforts at our concert.

Omar’s celebrated choir Aradhon will bring their special brand of sacred music to North Goa. We can’t wait to hear them at our anniversary concert.

Our orchestra Camerata Child’s Play India will play a few pieces including the fun Toy Symphony which will have additional help from ‘toy’ instruments (drums, bird whistle, rattle, triangle etc). We’ll ring, boom, cheep, tweet, shake, rattle and roll in the Christmas season this year

We are grateful, as always, to Christopher Gomes and Furtados Music for their unwavering support of our work. We also thank Caritas Goa for giving us much-needed rehearsal space for tutti and sectional rehearsals, and to Hard Rock Hotel Calangute Goa, Hard Rock Heals Foundation and ABRSM for their support.

We look forward to seeing all of you on Saturday 7th December 2019, 6 pm. Bring your friends and family to join in our anniversary celebrations!

Yours in music,
