Portuguese choir Génesis will perform a Christmas concert at Olhão’s Igreja Matriz on Saturday, December 22, at 9pm.

Their set list will include a variety of Christmas classics like ‘All I Want for Christmas is You’, ‘Silent Night’ and ‘Jingle Bells’ as well as some Portuguese festive tunes.

Founded in 2005, the choir is led by Ernesto Coelho and is described as “extremely adaptable, being able to perform as an orchestra, a cappella or as duets and trios.

Their repertoire is “very diverse, ranging from classic music to gospel and modern pop”.
