For this special Christmas concert, clarinettist Emma Johnson and the National Youth Chamber Choir (18-25 Years) will collaborate on Emma's Songs of Celebration for clarinet and upper voices, interspersed by favourite and new Christmas music such as the Coventry Carol, We Wish You a Merry Christmas, and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. There will also be a short new piece, Joy, for full choir and clarinet.
