Arts Choir line up Christmas extravaganza

We’re now hurtling towards December 25 and Christmas just wouldn’t be Christmas without a hearty dose of festive music.

Building on the success of last year’s Family Christmas Concert, Catherine Fish, Musical Director of the Berwick Arts Choir, has once again put together a programme to get everyone in the mood for the festive period.

For an evening, put aside chores like Christmas shopping and planning Christmas meals, and experience the heart-warming magic of Christmas by coming along for a 7pm start on Saturday, December 7 to St Andrew’s Church, Wallace Green, Berwick.

Tickets are just £8 (available on the door), whilst accompanied children under the age of 16 will be given free admission.

Not only will the choir be singing a spine-tingling selection of traditional carols, but the children from Tweed Music Centre Senior Choir will be joining them to sing some lighter Christmas carols and songs.

The children will also be performing items by themselves, under the direction of their leader, Verity Young, and the whole performance will be given added flourish and style by Brass on Tweed.

There will be carols in the programme for the audience to sing too - and there is nothing guaranteed to raise the mood more than a good sing!

The aim of Berwick Arts Choir is to establish this annual concert as a ‘not to be missed’ event that gets everyone’s Christmas off to a spectacular start by involving performers of all ages from the local community.

If you would like to sing with Berwick Arts Choir, and new members are always very welcome, the choir rehearses at 7.15pm on Thursday evenings at the United Reform Church in Spittal.

Children can experience the joy of music making by going along to Tweed Music Centre, which offers a range of singing and instrumental groups for children every Saturday morning at The Maltings, Call in at the theatre for more information.
