Church carol con­cert

CHB Mail - - NEWS -

It’s Christ­mas Every­where is the ti­tle of this year’s Christ­mas Carol Con­cert from the CHB Con­cert Choir.

For the first time in five years the con­cert will be held in St Mary’s Church in Waipuku­rau. Stage 1 of the church’s strength­en­ing is com­plete and it has been re­opened. The 42-mem­ber choir is en­joy­ing the acous­tics as they prac­tise.

The pro­gramme con­sists of Christ­mas car­ols from around the world — from the cold of the north­ern hemi­sphere to the Caribbean and the heat of a New Zealand sum­mer.

The au­di­ence will join in the singing of some well-known car­ols.

In­stru­men­tal items and ac­com­pa­ni­ments will be from two flutes, a vi­o­lin, recorders, a cit­tern [stringed in­stru­ment] and the pipe or­gan.

The mu­si­cal di­rec­tor is Kath Fletcher, with pi­anists Mary Davies and Hi­lary Mor­ton sup­port­ing the choir. Sam Ewen is on the or­gan and CHB mayor Alex Walker will sing a solo and sing with the choir. ■ There are two per­for­mances — Sun­day De­cem­ber 16 at 2pm and Mon­day De­cem­ber 17 at 7pm. Prices: Adult $10 School stu­dent $2. Tick­ets can be bought from choir mem­bers and there will be door sales.

For the first time in five years the con­cert will be held in St Mary’s Church in Waipuku­rau.
