CHILDREN from Sonning Common Primary School will take part in this year’s festive concert by the South Chiltern Choral Society.

The school choir will have a special part to play in the performance with their contribution to Bob Chilcott’s On Christmas Night, as well as having a spot of their own.

This year’s concert will also feature Born In Bethlehem, a series of Christmas spirituals arranged by conductor Gwyn Arch, who will be celebrating his 47th consecutive Christmas concert with the society.

Ian Westley will accompany On Christmas Night on the organ and a professional jazz trio (Jenny Carr, Genevieve Curd and Mike Jeffries) will provide support for Born In Bethlehem. This work also features a soprano soloist, Aneesa Chaudry.

There will be the usual opportunity for the audience to join in singing traditional carols and in the interval there will be complimentary wine and mince pies.

The concert takes place on Saturday, December 14 at 7.30pm and Sunday, December 15 at 2pm at Chiltern Edge School in Sonning Common. Tickets are £12/£6 U18s from Mary Esslemont on 0118 987 4346, or via the society’s website www.south chilternchoralsociety.org.uk
