pyrotechnic effects with astonishing aerial acrobatic acts and daredevil circus
artistry. The award-winning St. Michael's Choir School launches the evening
with a medley of holiday classics. Canadian recording artists Shaye, Jully
Black and Aselin Debson will also share their renditions of favourite holiday
tunes in an all-star concert. The evening wraps up with music at Nathan
