Christmas Carol Concert
December 21, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
At the end of another busy year, singing for the Charitable Community of East Devon, we also find ourselves at the end of the festive season of mince pies with mulled wine. This Christmas we were heard on Friday 13th Dec. singing carols at Bicton Park Gardens for their late evening Christmas Shopping. The following week on Wednesday 18th Dec we donned funny hats and Christmas Jumpers at the ‘Sir Walter Raleigh’ pub in East Budleigh, for more carols then Thursday 19th Dec. at the ‘Kings Arms’ pub in Otterton.
We finished the year, with our annual Carol Concert on Saturday 21st December at St Peters Church, Budleigh Salterton. We were joined by an extremely talented Soprano Soloist, Bella Westlake, a student from the University of Exeter Chapel Choir, with her take on old festive favourites. The event was a great success and helped to raise funds to support the choir. Some of the proceeds we are investing in new music. The typical cost of a new piece for our 55 or so members is often around £200! Anyone wishing to sponsor a musical number will have their name or perhaps the name of a loved one added to the scores and mentioned at our first performance of the new music. Our music committee can suggest a number if you are interested.
Thank you all for supporting us this year, and we wish you all a Merry Christmas, and Healthy New Year.
