CHOIR SINGS A CHRISTMAS POTPOURRI FROM AROUND THE WORLD
Urmston Choral Society will be bringing their festive spectacular of ‘Music from Around the World’ to St. Monica’s Church, Irlam Road, Flixton on Wednesday, December 12, starting at 7.00pm. They will be joined by children from St. Monica’s School Choir who will perform their own pieces as well as joining in with Urmston Choral Society for the finale. The concert will be repeated, without the children, at St. Werburgh’s Church, Wilbraham Road, Chorlton, on Saturday, December 15, starting at 2.30pm.
Featuring Christmas music from such varied and exotic places as Africa, China, Puerto Rico, France and Spain, as well as traditional Christmas Carols, the 70-strong mixed voice choir will also perform pieces written by Choir member, Lynn Taylor, and accompanist, Gareth Curtis, as well as featuring several soloists from the choir.
Said the Choir’s Musical Director, Julie Parker: “This concert reminds us that Christmas is being celebrated around the world and is represented by different musical styles. It will allow our audiences to be transported away from the commercial busyness of the festive season and remind us what Christmas is really all about.”
Tickets, priced £8 adults, £6 (concessions) and £2 students/children, can be purchased by contacting Ticket Secretary, Maxine Summers, on 0161 748 0903 or bought at the door. Further information about the Choir is available on their website: www.urmstonchoral.org.uk
