December Concerts

No Rating


Mersey Wave Christmas Concert took place in St Ambrose Church, Liverpool on 6th December 2013 with local Mersey Wave community choir leading the way through carols and classic Christmas Songs under the direction of Jason Ellis.   Owen Roberts also provided musical accompaniment on the piano and organ. Proceeds from refreshments, raffle and tombola tickets will support the activities of Speke Youth.  There was also £250 raised during the evening for Macmillan Cancer Support. It was wonderful that Father Christmas was able to be there and he is obviously a keen chorister too!

It was the first Christmas concert we had organised and huge thanks to everyone who came along to support these events and to all of the volunteers who have helped to make it possible.

Back in the round with the Fron Male Voice Choir at The New Vic Theatre on  21st December 2013. It is a great place and a wonderful concert to have been invited to sing at once again.  Laughter was ringing around the theatre as the audience enjoyed the Fron performing 12 days of Christmas …with actions!

Leeds Festival Chorus and the Orchestra of Opera North  14th December 2013  – Leeds Town Hall.
