THE ever-popular Dominican Convent carols by candlelight concert dubbed “Footsteps 2 Togetherness” held at the Bulawayo Amphitheatre on Monday night injected a joyful dose of festive spirit into one and all.
Thirty acts, including both the Convent Primary and High schools choirs, city and church choirs, performed some melodious carol music before a full house comprising mostly parents.
The concert started with the talented Dominican Convent High School marimba band showcasing its talent followed by a series of Christmas carols by the school’s choirs.
The Word of Life Church choir then sang Holy Night.
Bulawayo’s high flying choir Vocal Ex took to the stage with the carol Silent Night and received a standing ovation for its polished and professional performance.
Family Voices was not to be left behind as they performed the song Celebration.
The story of Jesus and the wise men was acted by the Dominican Convent Primary School with an array of talent being exhibited as the kids effortlessly played various instruments such as the violin, saxophone, drums and piano.
The audience was then invited to stand up and sing along to the ever popular We Wish You a Merry Christmas song.
Dominican Convent head Sister Rudo Matsika told Southern Eye Lifestyle that this was the first time to invite outsiders for their Carols by candlelight and the event was a success.
“This is the first time we have invited city and church choirs to be part of our carol night,” she said.
“We are pleased with the acts of worship they displayed today which made the event a success. This is a prayer and we have invited all to come and celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
