The choir is looking forward to our last concert for the year, before we take an extended break over the holiday season.

In our December concerts we’ve traditionally performed a wide variety of songs we’ve enjoyed singing throughout the year and we’ve featured small groups – in recent years from within the choir, and ended with a Christmas singalong with our audience.

This year we’re doing something quite different from our usual concert format.

We were invited by the Wairarapa Singers from Masterton to join them in two Combined Christmas Concerts.

In these concerts our two choirs combine to sing quite a few Christmas carols, each choir performs a short set of Christmas songs, and we all sing a few carols along with our audience.

The first of the combined concerts was held in St Matthew’s Church in Masterton, on Sunday afternoon, November 24, and was very well received by quite a large and appreciative audience.

The second concert will be on Tuesday eve December 10, at 7.30pm in the Martinborough Town Hall at the Waihinga Centre.

Admission is free, but anyone who can is encouraged to give a koha which will go to the Foodbank.

The choir has been fortunate to have had three inspiring visits this year from our fantastic choir patron and mentor Mark Dorrell. We always learn so much from him, and have good fun at the same time.

  After our December concert we’ll have our usual long summer holiday.

Watch this space for our start date in 2020, when we’ll welcome any new members who enjoy group singing, and who have wide-ranging taste in music! 

 Season’s Greetings from your Community Choir.
