In the purest tradition of the great jazz voices of the fifties and sixties, The Little Box offers its own version of essential Christmas Carols. The Kolossal Percussion Orchestra will accompany the Christmas’ Little Box on Sunday, December 2 at 8:30 pm at the Cité de la Musique et de la Danse.

The second Advent concert will be En Avent Bach on Sunday 9 December at 8:30 p.m., at the St Pierre-le-jeune Protestant church.

On Sunday December 16 at 8:30 pm at the Saint Thomas’s church, Resounding Christmas will perform for the third Advent concert. They will bring to life the timeless music of Mozart, Bach, Roussel, Gluck and Ravel, and share with the audience this alchemy ingrained in our memories.
