BARCLAYS HOUSE CHOIR CONCERT – 16 DECEMBER 2018
ST PETER’S CHURCH, PARKSTONE, POOLE, 7:30pm

“Joyful and Triumphant!”

Barclays House Choir presents its annual Christmas concert at St Peter’s Church, Ashley Cross, Poole, on Sunday 16 December at 7.30pm.  The choir will be joined by soprano soloist Sarah Palfreman-Kay and accompanied by the St Peter’s Orchestra who will also provide instrumental interludes including the fast and festive ‘Sleigh Ride’ and a sparkling medley of Christmas tunes entitled ‘A Christmas Festival’. The programme covers a wide range of music in different styles, with a selection from Handel’s oratorio ‘Messiah’ (including the rousing ‘Hallelujah’ chorus), the sparkling ‘Carol of the Bells’, the ever-lovely ‘Silent Night’ and an up-beat version of ‘We 3 Kings.’ With ample opportunities for audience participation in several traditional carols, this promises to be an enjoyable and entertaining evening as we explore both the contemplative and celebratory themes of Christmas. Tickets, priced £12 (concessions available) can be reserved by telephone (01202 552571) or purchased on the door.

Barclays House Choir gives two concerts each year, in December and May. The December concert is a Christmas concert with carols for the audience to join in. The spring concert often features a major choral work. Both concerts also feature the St Peter’s Orchestra.
