This year’s two Carol Concerts promise to be a wonderful evening of festive music, including audience participation, performed by the renowned local chamber choir Chichester Voices. The concerts will be conducted by Andrew Naylor and will feature some much-loved works including ‘I Saw Three Ships’, “The Twelve Days of Christmas” and “Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire”. Also, there will be the world premiere of “Laetabundus” – a sequence for Christmas by local composer & choir member Michael Walsh, and The Bee Carol, composed by choir member David Russell.
Audiences will have two chances to hear the concert: Firstly at the RNLI Station, Kingsway, Selsey, PO20 0DL on Saturday 15th December at 7.30pm. Richard Allum will be at the keyboard & the choir is raising money for Selsey Lifeboats.
Then, on Thursday 20th December, again at 7.30pm, the choir will be at their usual home of St Thomas a Becket’s Church, Pagham, PO21 4NU, raising money for Rotary Charities.
Directed by Andrew Naylor and accompanied by Richard Allum, tickets for these concerts cost £12 (£10 concessions, children and OAPs).
