Christmas Old and New 2011

Glowing from the success of their summer concert in July, the Thetford Singers have been hard at work rehearsing their winter programme. This year, the Singers will be performing a truly eclectic mix of seasonal music at their Christmas concert, taking place on Wednesday 14th December at the Thetford Guildhall.

“Christmas Old and New” will lead the audience on a musical journey through time, taking in festive music from old English, medieval and modern times, celebrating Christmas through the ages. The repertoire will visit sacred and classical pieces, well- and lesser-known carols, as well as a cappella and jazz versions of modern Christmas favourites. Including performances from Breckland Hand Bell Ringers, and opportunities for audience participation in carols, this will be a jam-packed Christmas stocking of a concert with something for everyone!

The performance starts at 7.30pm and tickets are available in advance from Leaping Hare, King Street, Thetford (01842 751975), or on the door priced £6 (£5 concessions), including seasonal refreshment.

To help keep weary shoppers in the festive spirit, the choir will also be singing carols outside St. Cuthbert’s Church on King Street on the morning of Saturday 10th December, collecting for CLIC Sargent (a charity which cares for children with cancer).
