An enthusiastic audience joined us in St Mary's Church on Saturday 14th December for A Celebration of Christmas.
With a varied programme including some movements from Britten's Ceremony of Carols, an arrangement of Away in a Manger by Chris Phelps and The Little Drummer Boy, the audience also had their opportunity to join in with some of the old favourites.
The choir was joined by harpist, Marged Hall for many of the carols and soloist William Russell, (who performed at our recent production of Elijah), for Once in Royal David's City. Serendipity also performed a collection of carols including Carol of the Bells and the traditional Spanish carol, Riu Riu Chiu.
The evening ended with mulled wine and light refreshments provided by members of the choir. Thankyou to everyone who came along to get Christmas off to a good start, and who gave so generously to the retiring collection for The Cancer Campaign in Suffolk. A fantastic £583 was raised for charity.
