This festival will be celebrated in style with traditional music and Scandinavian delicacies and beverages at the Courtyard of the MLH. Ranked with some of the most renowned choirs in the world, VOICE PRINT who have enthralled many an audience both in Sri Lanka and abroad will team up with Coro CantAmici, a choral musical ensemble to ring in the Christmas spirit.
It's easier than ever to get lost in the materialism of Christmas and lose touch with the true meaning of Christmas. Well MLH regained some of that lost Christmas spirit this year when the mystery, magic and mirth of Christmas is indeed captured on the 24th and 25th of December at the Governor’s Restaurant, the Terrace and the Seafood Cove. And remember the surprise visit from Santa in the most unusual manner maybe a sight to see!
Two traditions merged into one dining initiative is the idea behind Gospel and Jazz Brunch on Boxing Day(26th December 2012). Eshantha Peries and his Asia Pacific Jazz ensemble will jazz the day whilst Nuovo Vita will show off Gospel that took shape in the early twentieth century from the old spirituals that gave hope and strength to many.
All this and more will be offered by the hotel this festive season, so if you are looking at celebrating a culmination of Christmas festivities with a difference, a theme in order to build a greater understanding on the spirit of Christmas or appreciate a tradition that influences on the present, Mount Lavinia Hotel should be your number one choice this season.
