Jacqui will perform with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra in their Christmas Pops concert, with fellow Ballarat musician Ben Northey at the podium. It promises to be a delicious Christmas confection!

Like an assortment of presents under the Christmas tree, Christmas Pops features a mix of music and sing-alongs which will appeal to the whole family.

Presented by charismatic Australian mezzo-soprano Jacqui Dark and conducted by the acclaimed Benjamin Northey, the NZSO perform works from composers such as Vaughan Williams, Prokofiev and Tchaikovsky – including a selection from his beloved The Nutcracker.

They will be played alongside traditional favourites, including Oh Come all Ye Faithful, The Twelve Days of Christmas and Silent Night.
