Colinton & Merchiston Choir concert
5th December, 2016
This choir takes its membership from both the local community, and the parent/staff body of the School. Its Christmas concert took place on Sunday evening, 4th December. This day was the 40th anniversary of the death of Benjamin Britten, so it was appropriate to include his ‘Ceremony of Carols’, accompanied by harp (Sophie Askew). Other Christmas items included carols which the audience were invited to join in. Organ accompanist Peter Backhouse added some seasonal organ music, and the choir also sang the first of Handel’s Coronation Anthems.
Anyone who is interested in joining the choir next term is encouraged to visit its website, www.colintonchoir.org where further information can be found.
