The Christmas season is almost upon us and The Lydians, proudly supported by First Citizens, has begun preparations for its highly anticipated Christmas concert.

After staging an abridged two-night concert last year with a smaller ensemble in keeping with COVID-19 restrictions, The Lydians will return to Queen’s Hall on December 10 and 11 with a full complement of singers.  

The Lydian Steel will also return at full strength.

Despite the challenges of the last two years, The Lydians persevered, keeping spirits high through the gift of music while adhering to safety protocols.

Following its Christmas concert in December 2021, ‘Arise, Shine!’, the group celebrated Caribbean sacred music with ‘In Songs of Praise’ on May 29 at St Finbar’s Roman Catholic Church in Diego Martin, a concert that supported the building and restoration fund for the St. Joseph’s Roman Catholic Church.

The anticipated Lydian Steel recital concert, ‘Seasons of Steel - a 25th-anniversary celebration’ took place on July 16 and 17.  The Lydians also featured at other events in July, most notably, the Metamorphosis Dance Company’s – ‘Meta Dance Live’ and the MW Productions show, ‘Iëre X Tabago’.

The Lydians was among several cultural groups invited to be part of the celebration of Trinidad and Tobago’s 60th Independence Anniversary at the Prime Minister’s Gala Concert, ‘Aspire’ at the National Academy for the Performing Arts (NAPA) on August 30 and also had the distinction of performing at the ‘Toast to the Nation’ on Independence Day at the same venue.
