Christmas is just around the corner and Christmas concerts are already getting underway.
“Christmas is here” organised by Sound Scope led by Tilanka Jayamanne will be one of the first of such concerts to get us prepped for the Yuletide cheer. Focused on giving its audiences an intimate yet joyful start to the season this heartwarming performance is to be held at the Russian Cultural Centre Colombo 07 on the 1st of December.
Following the success of their previous concert “You will never walk alone” which was held on
behalf of victims from the April bomb blast on the 30th of August 2019 at the Bishops
Auditorium, Sound Scope decided to bring together yet another group of renowned and talented musicians to put together this Christmas production.
They hope to make this quite an intimate experience where the performers have the opportunity to be more close up with the audience and the perfect venue for this was provided in the form of the Russian Cultural centre.
“We want to create an ambience of warmth and comfort, where one would experience
Christmas next to a Christmas tree and a fireplace.” says Tilanka.
He further added that they would be performing an exciting selection of carols with a blend of
well known as well as some new ones - all with their unique flavour added to it - but not
departing from the true essence of why it is loved as Carols.
