Christmas Concert 2019

The hard work and fun of this term’s rehearsals culminated in the delivery of a programme which was, in part, very challenging. Benjamin Britten’s Christ’s Nativity had not been easy to learn, but with Crauford’s guidance, and a final bolstering of our confidence on the night, the choir enjoyed the satisfaction and reward that came from rising to that challenge. We hope our audience similarly appreciated the invitation to listen to something a little different, in contrast to the comfortable harmonies of the more familiar carols. These were a selection from various British composers and arrangers over the years, right up to the present day with John Rutter, and our very own Chris Hinkins (accompanist).

The evening was rounded off by the audience standing to sing with us.

Photographs (by Angela Clifton) were taken at the penultimate rehearsal, and at the end of our performance.

Our next concert is on May 16th 2020, and will be conducted by Caroline Boden.

Choir members,

Don't forget to hone your skills by studying your parts with the learning tracks - a very useful tool for between rehearsals! 🎧

This choir trolled actual John Rutter by singing ‘I Can’t Believe it’s not Rutter’

How lovely is John Rutter's reaction to this!

John Rutter is a certified choral legend… but that didn’t stop this choir completely ripping into him with this parody performance.

We're getting our teeth into the Christmas music now - I know, but it's what we choirs do in September!

There's still plenty of time if anyone wants to join us, though.
