A highlight of Christmas in the North End is the Concerto di Natale (Christmas Concert) at Sacred Heart Italian Church in historic North Square. Now in its 8th year and organized by the St. Leonard Church Parish, the concert brought together three choirs and over 60 singers to give the performance of the season to a full house on Sunday, December 16, 2012.
The joint Christmas concert includes the St. Leonard Parish Italian Choir and Chamber Orchestra in collaboration with Our Lady of Czestochowa Church Polish Choir and the St. John’s School Children’s Choir. The music directors are Dan Drzymalski, Marta Saletnik and Betsy Ustach. After the concert, a Christmas party was enjoyed at the Saint John School Hall.
