Euroradio Christmas Music Day

The Euroradio Christmas Music Day has been one of the EBU’s most popular offerings ever since it first aired in 1995.

The winning format has never varied: on the Sunday before Christmas, EBU Radio Members contribute live or deferred concerts of music focused on the theme of Christmas. The potential repertory is vast, ranging from Gregorian chant and traditional carols to Baroque sacred music and contemporary a cappella works.

One of the keys to the Day’s appeal resides in its closeness, not only to radio listeners but also to the live audiences at the concert venues, who may witness traditional ceremonies or even be asked to sing along with the performers.
