And the sound of young voices will fea­tures too with the choirs from Oak Farm Ju­nior and Oak Wood School choirs.

The Christ­mas Con­cert will launch the 33rd Sea­son for the Hilling­don Phil­har­monic Or­ches­tra which is now well es­tab­lished in the lo­cal area with over 60 reg­is­tered mem­bers, hav­ing per­formed an in­cred­i­bly wide and var­ied reper­toire of works over the years.
