What a wonderful way to celebrate the festive season! With all tickets sold for our Charity Christmas Concert, and more still paying on the door, we sang to a full church.
The afternoon concert included a variety of Christmas music, from traditional carols to modern pieces. There were a few opportunities for the audience to join in too!
New pieces learnt for this concert were two beautiful songs: ‘Still, Still, Still’ and ‘Suo Gan’. These were particularly enjoyed by the audience.
Each section performed their own piece; all very different and well sung. The Altos song was ‘The Colours of Christmas’ by John Rutter, the Tenors and Basses reprised their ‘African Noel’ and the Sopranos sang the lighthearted ‘Holiday Tango’.
The concert ended with ‘O Holy Night’ as an encore; one of the choir’s favourite pieces.
We welcomed Councillor David Cox, representing HITS, who told us all more about the charity which was benefitting from the concert. St Michael’s Church also shared the more than £1100 raised, so each received over £550.
Thank you to everyone who took part and to Lydia and Roger for their continued support.
