The Lydians: "A Magic Christmas Voyage" (2014)

            Dear Friend in Music!


It’s that time of year when we at The Lydians are preparing for our Christmas Concert Season. Our choir always looks forward to performing for you at Christmas time. 

We are “Christmas people!”, and we embrace all the best that is Christmas…..the food, the decorations, the presents, the love and fellowship but most of all, the Music!

This season, at the Queens Hall Auditorium Port-of-Spain, The Lydians will take you on "A Magic Christmas Voyage" around the world, to celebrate the universal story of joy and hope, peace and goodwill in a wide range of cultural traditions. 

The story will be told through an Arabic chant, a First People’s carol, Betelehemu in Yoruba, excerpts from the Argentinian Navidad Nuestra and a Puerto Rican Mass; a Marian segment, as well as Chinese, French, German and Brazilian carols. Expect a stage set that highlights iconic aspects of the birth of Christ including richly costumed Magi.

So, to you, our treasured supporters, lovers of music and friends, support “A Magic Christmas Voyage” at Queens Hall by being with us in the audience to enjoy what promises to be a very exciting season.

Party with The Lydians! Handle It 2014!

Party with The Lydians! Handle It 2014!

In 2014, The Lydians continue our thrust to take the organisation in a new direction and find ways to reach a wider audience. Being entertainers, hosting a great party seemed like an obvious choice!

It is in this spirit that we’ve formed the Lydians Limers Inc and present "Handle It" our very first fundraising cooler fete boat cruise! Join us on January 25th on the Harbour Master from 8-11pm. Although our performing arts group of choir, Lydian Steel, accompanists and dancers has been active and successful for 30 plus years, one could say we’re just getting started. We have performed all over the country for a variety of occasions—from command performances for the President of the Republic, to goodwill concerts at Christmas on the Promenade. The Lydians represents a wide cross-section of our national community that believes in the uplifting power of the arts. We are happy to share our enthusiasm with you!

Music will be provided by DJs Merry Perry and a team from SLAM 100.5! Don’t forget it’s a cooler fete so stock up on what you like! In keeping with the vessel’s rules though remember NO GLASS BOTTLES ALLOWED. There will also be chances to win fantastic door prizes, and we take this opportunity to thank our generous sponsors and contributors!

Tickets for Handle It cost $200 and are currently available from committee members. Call 344-2334, 724-9856, 355-7769 to get tickets. You can also check our Handle It! Facebook page ( for details and updates. Join us for the different vibe that only the Lydians can bring!
