Christmas concerts coming up!

Hi there. ‘Tis the season to be jolly’ so I thought I would alert you to the concerts that I have in the pipeline from now until early January.

**Cecilia McDowall alert**

I am conducting three of Cecilia’s compositions in the lead up to Christmas. If you don’t know of her work, I can really recommend it. My choirs are really enjoying them!

Saturday 3 December at 7pm. Brighton Orpheus Choir
St John’s Church, Knoyle Road, Brighton, BN1 6RB

J.S.Bach: Magnificat and Cecilia McDowall: Magnificat. With full orchestra and soloists.

Sunday 4 December at 6pm. Brighton Singers

An excellent choir of around 30 singers, singing Lauridsen and McDowall, with a very talented young organist: Hamish Dustagheer – the new organist at St.Bartholomew’s Church in Brighton.
