A standout saxophone player and a flamboyant modern violinist will have their moment in the spotlight when they hit the stage at the nation’s favourite free Christmas party, Coca-Cola Christmas in the Park.
Discovered through a nationwide talent search, saxophonist Alex Churchill and violinist Yoomia Sim were selected to perform at the popular free Christmas concerts which return to the big stage after a two-year hiatus.
Creative director of Coca-Cola Christmas in the Park, Dixon Nacey says, “Each year we audition and discover many exciting new performers, and this year we decided to also offer two talented musicians a starring role in the show.”
Yoomia will perform in Christchurch event and Alex will play at the Auckland show. They’ll join a line-up which includes headline acts L.A.B in Auckland and Kaylee Bell in Christchurch, MC Jackie Clarke and a star-studded touring cast, local performers and dance troupes, a 20-piece band, a gospel choir, and a kapa haka group.
Says Dixon, “After a two-year break, we’re excited to be back with such an impressive line-up of new and popular Kiwi talent. It’s going to be a real Christmas cracker of a show, another magical night of world class Kiwi entertainment that can only be Coca-Cola Christmas in the Park.”
Coca-Cola Christmas in the Park will be held at Christchurch’s Hagley Park on Saturday 26 November and at the Auckland Domain on Saturday 10 December 2022.
