Basically, it's pretty obvious what we do; we sing Carols. We don't do Singing Waiters, we don't do Glee medleys and we certainly don't rap. We do Carols – and we do them well. So, if you're organising an event for November or December (we kindly recommend that you don't book us to sing carols in June; it gets pretty hot in our hats & scarves) – office party, private bash, festive knees up, whatever – and you think that it'd be nice to have some jolly carollers carolling away, then get in touch.
Individually, we perform in many different areas of the music industry – opera, recital, pop, film soundtracks, church music – but all love coming together every Christmas to sing some carols!
Here are few lines about some of the musicians that make up the Christmas Carollers...
Monica - she does the high bits.
Alexandra – the fruity bits.
James – the squeaky bits.
Peter – the rumbly bits.
A wee bit about who we are...
Scottish soprano Monica, studied at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama and is currently in her second year at the Royal College of Music where she has a scholarship for the Masters course. She has recently performed principal roles with Scottish Opera, Bloomsbury Opera and Haddo House Opera. She has performed as a soloist in Glasgow Theatre Royal, Glasgow Royal Concert Hall, Edinburgh Festival Theatre and Cadogan Hall. Monica has directed numerous Christmas concerts, providing carols for Scotland's biggest Christmas Festival - Glasgow's Winterfest.
Originally from Nottingham Alexandra studied at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama and the National Opera Studio. She has sung as soloist with the BBC SSO, Scottish Opera Orchestra, Welsh National Opera Orchestra, Royal Ballet Sinfonia, The Hebrides Ensemble, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and, strangely, the Vietnam National Opera. Alexandra has also recorded an album called Aurora and which reached number 2 in the classical music charts, as well as a Christmas album. Alexandra’s favourite gig involved being flown on private jet to Antwerp to give the Christmas concert for a multinational bank.
Hailing from Sussex, James studied at Oxford University and the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. Every year he sings at Glyndebourne Opera Festival and works regularly with the Academy of Ancient Music. He has been a soloist with the BBC NOW, BBC SSO, RSNO, SCO, Philharmonia and BSO. He has worked with Sir Simon Rattle, Sir David Willcocks, Sir Mark Elder and Sir Charles Mackerras. He has performed at the Royal Albert Hall, Wigmore Hall, Royal Festival Hall and the Barbican Hall. He has sung carols on BBC 2 and Channel 4 and is on the soundtrack of the latest Hollywood take on A Christmas Carol.
Peter is from the Shires but, being 6’4”, is not the least bit hobbity. Having studied at Brighton School of Art and Trinity College of Music, he now sings regularly for English National Opera and the Royal Opera House in London. He has been a soloist For ROH2, Grange Park Opera, Opera Brava, Pavilion Opera, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and has worked with Sir Charles Mackerras, Martyn Brabbins, and Sir Edward Heath (at his Christmas concerts). For several years he was a performer in the Thursford Christmas Spectacular and has also been a guest artist at Y.P. Christmas Spectacular in British Columbia.
