The six women of vocal group All Xclusive can’t wait to sing at this coziest and most atmospheric event in Gouda, by candlelight!

The repertoire consists mostly of six-part arrangements of well-known and lesser-known songs, pop, soul, jazz, in English, French, Dutch (or something else), sometimes with their own creative text.

The group was founded in IJsselstein in 2017 and everyone already had experience in polyphonic singing and was very excited to start their own small a cappella group.

Being busy with singing is a great pleasure, a challenge is not avoided and performances are of course the icing on the cake! This year they have therefore organized their own and successful “High Tea Concert” in March. In Gouda you can count on all kinds of Christmas songs;  (Last, Wonderful, Merry etc.), but also on other surprising repertoire.


20.30 – 21.30 uur

Real Sounds is originally a Gouda coverband that exists for 10 years. The band plays music from past to present, from beautiful ballads to swinging pop songs. Of course they will also play some Christmas repertoire for this occasion.
