Carols on Norton

The Leichhardt Espresso Chorus produces a free Carols on Norton concert each year. This event is made possible through the generous support of the Inner West Council and this year the Commonwealth Bank, Leichhardt Marketplace branch.

The celebrations in 2018 start at 7pm on the 16th December in Pioneers Memorial Park.

In case of wet weather we'll be in the Leichhardt Town Hall.

On Stage

In 2017 we took the magical mix of Artistic Director Michelle Leonard, soloist Billie McCarthy, and MC Andrew Bukenya... add 3 choirs and a world class orchestra for a festive fabulous family night out. Watch this space to see what we come up with in 2018!





"Any musical activity is a powerful builder of friendships, community bonds and social capital. The aim of Carols on Norton is to encourage community interaction through music-making by people of all ages and ability; at the highest level; in a community setting".

Michelle Leonard, Artistic Director, Leichhardt Espresso Chorus
