If you happen to get an earful of soul-stirring children’s voices raised in song while meandering through Downtown Brooklyn on Monday, Dec. 12, follow the sound to the source and enjoy the free, live performance by the Grammy Award-winning Brooklyn Youth Chorus. The group will perform a program of songs and carols for that evening’s Christmas tree lighting ceremony at Brooklyn Borough Hall plaza.

Borough President Marty Markowitz invites all Brooklynites to come and see the lighting of the sensational 35-foot balsam fir tree, decorated by the staff of New York City’s Department of Parks and Recreation.

Also making an appearance at the tree lighting will be Santa Claus and the Brooklyn College Brass Ensemble.

The façade of Borough Hall and its cupola will be transformed into a dramatic backdrop for the tree when it is illuminated with the building’s new, state-of-art, computer-generated architectural lighting system, which is making its debut on Monday.

The Christmas tree lighting festivities will begin at 5:30 pm on Dec. 12 at the Brooklyn Borough Hall Plaza (209 Joralemon St. between Court and Adams streets). The event is free of charge. For more information, visit
