Tick­ets now on sale for Christ­mas con­cert

Hamilton Advertiser - - ALL ABOUT LANARKSHIRE -

Strathaven Choral So­ci­ety will ex­tend a warm wel­come to every­one at their Christ­mas con­cert this year.

A Spirit of Christ­mas will be held on Sun­day, December 9, at 7pm, in Strathaven Scout and Guide Cen­tre, Kirk Street.

The pro­gramme has a “mixed and ap­peal­ing sea­sonal theme” in­clud­ing some Daniel Elder set­tings,some well-known and not-so-well-known car­ols, plus lots more.

And the so­ci­ety are de­lighted to be join­ing forces once again, with Coal­burn Sil­ver Band, who will play some pieces on their own as well as mu­sic with the choir.

It is ex­pected that the evening will re­ally raise the roof in the old Strathaven Town Hall, now the Scout and Guide Cen­tre.

Due to the pop­u­lar­ity of this con­cert, the so­ci­ety are hop­ing that most tick­ets will be bought in ad­vance to help avoid a peo­ple­jam at the door on a cold night. Tick­ets can be eas­ily ob­tained from choir mem­bers or via the web­site www.strathaven­choral. com.

The num­ber of tick­ets avail­able at the door there­fore will be lim­ited. Doors open at 6.15pm so come early to en­sure a good seat. En­try is £10 (un­der-18s get in free but must also ac­quire a ticket) which in­cludes a pro­gramme and also a warm­ing drink and mince pies af­ter­wards as well as a prize draw. A spokesper­son said: “We would like to thank the vol­un­teers from St An­drew’s Hospice who, once again, will be help­ing run our con­cert by serv­ing teas and help­ing with the prize draw.

“St An­drew’s pro­vides mul­ti­dis­ci­plinary sup­port for pa­tients, fam­i­lies and car­ers in a calm and peace­ful en­vi­ron­ment. The hospice is a reg­is­tered char­ity and ser­vices are pro­vided free of charge to the adult pop­u­la­tion of La­nark­shire, with­out dis­tinc­tion of race, gen­der or creed.

“Con­tin­ued pro­vi­sion of these vi­tal ser­vices is only pos­si­ble with your gen­eros­ity and as­sis­tance of the vol­un­teers in their lo­cal shops. Please sup­port them any way you can.”

The mu­si­cal di­rec­tor is Chris Barr and the so­ci­ety are pleased to have their reg­u­lar ac­com­pa­nist, Raz­van Lu­culescu, with them again this year.

The choir is al­ways look­ing for new mem­bers. If you can sing (you don’t have to be able to read mu­sic but it helps), Strathaven Choral So­ci­ety will wel­come you.

De­tails can be ac­cessed through the web­site at www. strathaven­choral.com.

Feel­ing festive Every­one is ex­cited for the Christ­mas con­cert
