Stille Nacht
St Agnes Church, Port Macquarie
Saturday, 17th December 2016

There’s nothing quite like the sound of beautiful Christmas music to get everyone into the festive spirit, and we were delighted that capacity audiences joined the Hastings Choristers at St Agnes Church Port Macquarie on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th December for Stille Nacht, our concerts celebrating Christmas.  The concerts featured Hastings Choristers’ Cantorus and Cantabile choirs who were joined by Bel Canto children’s choir for an enchanting mix of well-known carols and Christmas music along with some new but equally beautiful pieces.

As part of their 75th Anniversary celebrations earlier this year St Agnes Church had a new organ installed, and we in Hastings Choristers were very excited to have the opportunity to be singing with this beautiful instrument, played by our good friend of the Choristers - Heather Moen-Boyd.

Heather studied at Sydney Conservatorium, where she gained a Bachelor of Music, and also holds the A Mus A and FTCL diplomas. An experienced recitalist, she is organist of Scots Kirk Presbyterian Church, Mosman.  She has accompanied major choral works with various choirs throughout Sydney and regional areas and has travelled to Port Macquarie a number of times to play for the Hastings Choristers, and we were delighted to welcome her back this year.
