We are proud to present our annual Christmas concert on Saturday 13th December. This year the concert will take place in a new venue – St Aldhelm’s Church, Spa Road, Weymouth.
The society is especially thrilled to be joined by Wyke Regis Junior School Choir, with their director, Mrs Helen Rewse. The young singers will perform with the choral society in several favourites such as ‘Away in a Manger’ and ‘Good King Wenceslas’ and also entertain us all with their own selection of songs.
There will be festive music in many different styles and ample opportunity for audience participation in the traditional well-loved carols.
The programme promises an evening of variety as both the contemplative and celebratory moods of Christmas are explored through works such as the hauntingly beautiful ‘Candlellight Carol’ by John Rutter and ‘Scots Nativity’ by Alan Bullard, contrasting with Percy Fletcher’s dramatic ‘Ring out Wild Bells’ and Mack Wilberg’s exuberant arrangement of ‘Joy to the World’.
We are also very pleased to be singing the premiere performances of Christmas songs by two local composers, Vanessa Young and Louise Dukes.
As in previous years the singers will be accompanied by the outstanding local organist and president of Weymouth Choral Society, David Bruce-Payne, who will be putting the organ through its paces. Also playing the organ will be 14-year-old Katie Ninham, who is studying the instrument under the Salisbury diocese ‘Pipe-Up’ scheme for young organists.
Join Weymouth Choral Society, under musical director Helen Brind, for what promises to be a large and satisfying helping of Christmas fare!
The concert starts at 7.30pm. Tickets are £10.00 (and free to under-16s) and will be available soon choir members and the usual outlets soon. So watch this space for more information, check our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter.
