However, it wouldn't be the holidays without friends; together with orchestra, a chorister from Trinity
has invited special guests Aled Jones
(the voice of "The Snowman") and choir Gregorian to join her.

Webber for a very special performance of "Christmas Dream", a song written by Lloyd
Webber and Tim Rice. This holiday classic features a beautiful new arrangement and will certainly be a memorable performance.
Transforming the iconic setting, as only Sarah
