For music lovers of all ages, who enjoy various music genres, December is the month of surprise concerts at the Radio Hall, which naturally include Christmas carols and songs, an occasion for the audience to feel the magic atmosphere of the festive season. If on 9th December the audience enjoyed carols sung by children or compositions with religious influences sung by two specialised artistic ensembles, and on 13th December the Academic Radio Choir will sing Christmas songs of Slavic origin, the concert scheduled at 5 p.m., on Sunday, 16th December will give you the chance to listen to traditional Christmas carols.

Under the title 'We go carolling…', ensembles presenting Christmas customs and traditions, as well as groups of carol singers from Arad, Sibiu, Mehedinți, Suceava, Tulcea, Vrancea, and Maramureș will bring back the magic of childhood at the Radio Hall.
