Our Spirit of Christmas concerts with about ten participating local schools. This is an annual and very popular set of concerts where the local schools bring choirs to perform individually, and also in a joint finale of Christmas music with the Choral Society. This is a rare occassion for young singers to sing with an adult choir and whilst it is a celebration of Christmas music, it is also an inportant part of our outreach to our local community. Please put the date in your diary and keep choral music in Christmas!
