Choir sets date for festive concert
MACCLESFIELD Oriana choir is launching its 87th season of music-making by performing a lighthearted musical mix.
The gig, entitled ‘a musical pot pourri’ will be at Macclesfield Methodist Church on Saturday, November 26, at 7.30pm.
Conducted by Keith Yearsley, the concert will feature opera choruses, seasonal Christmas music and solo items, all spiced with humour.
All the tunes will be accompanied on the piano and organ by Andy Donaldson.
After the concert there will be coffee and mince pies.
Tickets are priced £10 and are available from Cherry Blossom Bakery on Church Street, or by calling 01625 424215.
During its history, the choir has won at major music festivals and a cot in Macclesfield Infirmary was dedicated to them during the Second World War to thank them for their monthly concerts.
