Our Christmas 2023 Concert 

is a lovely programme of both contemporary and traditional classics. 

There are many concerts taking place on the Island over this festive season 

But we do hope that you will come to ours, in amongst the others, 

as our Christmas Concerts are held every other year. 

We have been so enjoying our rehearsals of this beautiful music  

and are really looking forward to performing this special programme:

– Bob Chilcott’s ‘On Christmas Night’ is a musical celebration  

of the Christmas Story presented as a sequence of 8 carols of his own setting, 

with an array of styles; from comforting & reflective, to jubilant, swinging & folksy. 

Interspersed with his suggested additional Readings. 

– Interval with refreshments. 

– A varied selection of traditional carols, with optional audience participation for 3 popular favourites. 

We look forward to seeing you there.
