Christmas Concert Dec 2013, 8th December

Go back

Christmas is always special, and this one really was. As well as the wonderful selection of choral Christmas music, we were joined once again, by the popular Dell School Singing Club, a group of enthusiastic 8-10 yr olds, and the Beachley Military Wives, who manage to rehearse for this concert, even though many are full time mums, with husbands far away from home. It only goes to show that Christmas music can be enjoyed and celebrated by people of all ages and from all walks of life.
