CAROLS FOR AUDIENCE AND ORCHESTRA Many orchestras, both amateur and professional, have Christmas concerts in which they encourage the audience to sing-a-long some carols, so here’s the very thing! Arrangements that give the orchestra something different to play than a straight forward ’hymn-book’ harmonization. These are quite easy and will need little rehearsal.
The conductor, or MC, should tell the audience that there is an introduction at the beginning and before the last verse, where there is also a change of key to look out for. For the conductor - there is an optional cut of one verse which is marked in the parts
All these ’Carols for Audience’ have been played by the Kent Concert Orchestra at their yearly Christmas Concerts in the Marlowe Theatre, Canterbury and now by various orchestras all over the world due to the wonder of Sibelius.
Scoring: 2,2,2,2: 4,2,3,1: Timps. Snare and Bass Drums, Suspended Cymbal; Harp(optional); and Strings.

Reviews of Hark The Herald Angels Sing
I am writing as Chair of the London Medical Orchestra committee to thank you for the carol arrangements. As you may know, we performed five of them at our Christmas concert on 14 December 2014. It was a hugely successful event, raising more than £1000 for Freedom from Torture as well as over £1000 for the orchestra, in order to enable us to continue to support medically-related charities and make great music. We played to a packed house, and the audience thoroughly enjoyed singing the carols with us, and were helped along in this by the Tottenham Community Choir.
I wish you all the best for 2015 and thank you again.
