The Choir performed a midday concert of Christmas songs at St. Andrew's on the Terrace on 15th December 2021.
We invited the audience to sing along with many of the carols.
We were directed by Mark Stamper (in white shirt) with Liam Fury (centre, back row) on piano.
We opened the concert with a solo by a young man of school age singing the first verse of 'Once in Royal David's City',
and later we had a duet by young women from Queen Margaret College.
Please keep safe, and follow guidelines. Sign in at the door.
We practice at Tawa Union Church from 7pm until 9pm on Thursdays or occasionally on other days,
from February until November, with some exceptions, due to other commitments.
You are welcome to pop in and listen, and maybe partake of a cup of tea and a chat. Vaccine records are essential.
