On Saturday 12 December, Weymouth Choral Society is proud to present its annual Christmas concert. This year the concert will take place in a new venue at St John’s Church, Weymouth. The Society is especially thrilled to be joined by the Dorset Sinfonia Orchestra (conductor David Ansell) who will provide full accompaniment to a packed programme of seasonal items. As well as the traditional congregational carols, other choral items include favourites by John Rutter, extracts from Handel’s ‘Messiah’ including the wonderful ‘Hallelujah Chorus’, and the uplifting ‘O Holy Night’. The orchestra will entertain with some well-known interludes such as ‘Sleigh Ride’ and a medley from ‘The Nutcracker Suite’. Soprano Caroline Thomas will be providing solo items and Louise Dukes will be at the piano. The programme promises an evening of great variety and different musical styles as we share with you the contemplative and celebratory aspects of the Christmas season.
Join Weymouth Choral Society and The Dorset Sinfonia for what promises to be a large and satisfying helping of Christmas fare!
