Yes Barbara, Christmas caroling is a thing...

Chicago carolers

Thank you for a wonderful concert yesterday!  I hear you got 63 guests and everyone left feeling the Christmas spirit.  You got several comments like “Awesome!”  “Beautiful!”  “They remind me of when I used to sing!”


You were very friendly, encouraged the audience to sing along, and stayed afterwards to answer questions about your costumes
and repertoire.  You and the Carollers are the total package, and just the ticket for a fun holiday program!  I am always so pleased
to hear that my patrons are happy, so thank you for helping me do that.


A testimonial from 2013 Chicago carolers

The Canterbury Carollers delighted everyone, young and old(er). The costumes were beautiful...like something out of a movie.
Very Dickens-ish.
