For a second year in a row the Nightingale Chorus is taking to the streets.

A large choral group has come together to sing Christmas songs outdoors and at select locations this holiday season. This marks the 26th year of the Nightingale Chorus, a normally on-stage event cancelled again by the pandemic.

The singers are performing at area nursing and long-term care homes, Bluewater Health, and neighborhoods throughout Sarnia-Lambton, said the Bluewater Health Foundation, which has partnered with founder Carrie Beauchamp on “The Christmas Ribbon” project.

Residents and front-line workers can view and hear the chorus from windows and patios, with locations announced last minute to avoid large crowds gathering.

A Facebook group is sharing live streaming of performances at or found by searching ‘The Christmas Ribbon.’

Donations made online at will support the Access Open Minds youth mental health initiative.
