Final concert of 2017 a resounding success

We held our annual Christmas concert on Friday 8th December. The Candlelight Carol Service a performance in words and music with narrators Geraint Sayers and Chloe Wheeler and Jo Gascoigne on cello.

Funds raised went to St. Mary’s organ fund as usual following the Christmas concert. We were accompanied as always by Gerry with Jo Gascoigne on the cello for some of the pieces. Following the opening number ‘Sweet little Jesus boy’ we sang ‘Guadete’ accompanied by Emma and Carol on recorders whilst percussion fell to Gerry and Jo. We were led by our Musical Director Nancy and we enjoyed the performance introducing some new pieces for 2017 along with some old favourites, closing with a rousing ‘Joy to the World’

Following the concert everyone was invited to join us for mince pies and mulled wine. The concert brought to an end another busy year for us, we are now enjoying a well-deserved break.
