Live carol singing with festive music, to lift your spirits, takes place at St Bartholomew’s Church in Crewkerne on Friday December 18th, beginning at 7.30 pm. Tickets for the specially devised seasonal concert, organised by the Friends of St Bart’s who run fundraising events to help conserve the 15th century, Grade 1 listed building, are still available at £12 each for those who want to join the socially distanced audience. ‘A Crewkerne Christmas’ will be set among the twinkling lights of the Christmas Tree Festival and will be broadcast live on the artsatstbarts Facebook page, for those who wish to sing along at home.
Tim Donaldson, South Somerset Choral Society’s Director of Music, will conduct a specially assembled group of singers called Choir of Angels as they perform all-time favourite carols and other songs. Following on from the success of Jonathan Delbridge’s October organ concert, Jonathan will be accompanying the choir and playing his new piano composition, ‘A Christmas Fantasy’ and a Christmas classic.
The evening programme will also include readings devised by Stagecoach Director Anne Cooke, starting with a poem written by Chair of Crewkerne & District U3A, Sheila Seymour, that sets the scene for an inspiring and moving journey from Darkness into Light. If you would like to be part of the socially distanced audience at this Christmas concert, please call Steve on 01460 271767 or 07583005331 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
