Capel Choral Society: Christmas at home!

‘Home’ for Capel Choral Society is the Memorial Hall in Capel village, and that is where the choir will be holding its Christmas Concert on Monday 7th December. The programme will include the ‘Christmas’ choruses from Handel’s messiah (including Hallelujah!) interspersed with some less familiar pieces by Rossini, Saint Saens and Mendelssohn. There will also be some favourite Christmas Carols for the audience to join in.

The concert will start at 7:30pm and ticket prices is £7.50 which includes seasonal refreshments.

In addition to the concert, the Choir will be hosting Cakes & Carols in Capel Parish church on Sunday 13th December, which will be an opportunity to joint he Choir in an informal afternoon of carol singing, including all the most popular Carols.

The Choir is now well into its 2015/16 season and is already looking forwards to the 2016 Leith Hill Music Festival and have started learning Haydn’s Harmoniemesse and some of the smaller pieces which it will be performing in the Competitions on the morning of its Festival day next April. The Choir will only start serious rehearsal of this music in the New Year however and has only scratched the surface of these pieces so far, so there is still plenty of time for new singers to join Capel Choral and be able to ‘cats up’ easily, sopranos, altos. tenors and basses will all be very welcome – but particularly Men!
