Choral to cel­e­brate winter

The Galloway News - - DISTRICT NEWS -

Re­hearsals have be­gun for Kirkcud­bright Choral So­ci­ety’s winter con­cert.

The group meets un­der the ex­per­tise of mu­si­cal direc­tor Michael Ap­ple­ford.

This year’s con­cert will take place on Sat­ur­day, De­cem­ber 1, in the Cochran Hall, Kirkcud­bright Academy, and will fea­ture a var­ied se­lec­tion of pieces that re­flect the winter sea­son, ad­vent and the end of the Great War.

Com­posers such as Dan For­rest and Ola Gjeilo, whose com­po­si­tions have thrilled lo­cal au­di­ences in re­cent years, will again be rep­re­sented, to­gether with works by mu­si­cians new to the choir.

Trib­ute will be paid to those who fell serving their coun­try with Ralph Vaughan Wil­liams’ Dona No­bis Pacem, an ex­quis­ite piece for both choir and soloists.
