Celebrating the Christmas season with your group

With the pandemic still present in our lives, many of us will be missing our usual, seasonal music celebrations whether it’s attending a local carol service, singing or playing in a festive performance or Christmas social events. To help recreate some of these, and find alternative ways to celebrate the holiday season we have pulled together some ideas from our members to help inspire you and keep musical activities thriving at Christmas.
