Concert with Southport Orchestra

 

Saturday 3rd December 2016 at 7:30pm

We are delighted to have been invited to join the  Southport Orchestra  to perform music for the festive season. The programme will consist of a selection of both secular and sacred pieces and there will be an opportunity for audience participation. and the concert will be given a youthful lift by the children of the Woodlands Junior Choir from Formby.

The Southport Bach Choir will be singing Christmas pieces by John Rutter and others, and there will also be several audience carols with thrilling descants by Sir David Willcocks, led by the choir.

Orchestral pieces will include:
Sleigh Ride by Frederick Delius
A selection from the Nutcracker Suite by Tchaikovsky
A Christmas Overture by Nigel Hess
Troika by Prokofiev
White Christmas by Irvine Berlin
– and a piece that is familiar to nightbirds and insomniacs:  Ronald Binge’s Sailing By, Radio 4’s introduction to the shipping forecast.

The concert takes place at Emmanuel Parish Church, Cambridge Road, Southport PR9 9PR.
