Teas FB InstaPost 1080x1080px 551x551On 11 December 2022, the young members of our SCJ choirs stepped excitedly and determinedly on a purposely built stage at the Kempinski San Lawrenz Hotel and proudly exhibited the techniques and music they had learnt over the previous months. The three choirs: the SCJ Teenage Boys Singers, the SCJ Children’s Choir, and the SCJ Children’s Choir Younger Group, were accompanied by Amy Rapa on the piano and, with the help of our Choir Director Marouska and Choir Leader Stefan, put on a memorable concert for a sizable audience.

Teas The Season! was an afternoon experience for the entire family, centred around delicious tea, cakes and nibbles, enchanting Christmas carols… and a bit of humour for good measure.

A highlight of the afternoon - and on a more serious note - was a special message straight from war torn Ukraine. A reminder not to take peace for granted, but also to appreciate all the little things, even in difficult moments. On the cue of our Ukrainian friend, the SCJ Teenage Boys Singers emotionally sang Shchedryk, a Ukrainian carol, in honour of all those surrounded by conflict during this holiday season and beyond.

We loved hosting Teas The Season! and we are grateful for all those without whose support, our concerts would not be possible: the Cultural Heritage Directorate within the Ministry for Gozo, the professional and talented team who work tirelessly behind the scenes, our choristers’ families for their cooperation and, last but not least, our audience for their continuous support and appreciation.

Check out some images from Teas The Season!, including our special guests who had plenty of antics up their sleeve… (we are talking about you, Grandma and Christopher!). The dialogue suitably fitting for the afternoon between two special guests, Ms Bess Hayes and Christopher acted by Sue Scantlebury and Andy Fava was penned by Alex Farrugia.
