Come along and celebrate Christmas with Caldy Valley Voices.
Music, poetry from the Chester Poets, and a mince pie to get you in the festive spirit! There will also be a raffle in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. We will be performing a new carol “Sleep, my Jesu” at this concert which was recently composed by Jamie Hall as part of his project “Dancing Day” especially to support Macmillan Cancer as part of #ChoirsAgainstCancer. Many other choirs are singing this carol to raise money for this very worthy cause.

Tickets £5 from choir members, or phone 01829 771624, or buy them below:

Excerpts from last year’s carol concert –

Singing for Santa

In the forest with SantasWe had a great time this morning singing in Delamere Forest for over 300 Santas.
Elaine, one of our choir members, writes:

Thank you to the dozen or so stalwarts who turned up to the Delamere Santa Dash this morning. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many Santas in one place. It may have been raining, but there was plenty of Christmas spirit (some of it in the form of mulled wine) and loads of enthusiasm! Ably led by Will, we sang an impressive number of songs and carols in 2 sets, and enjoyed a coffee together in the cafe. (If you haven’t been yet, I can recommend it …the cakes and coffee were wonderful). Happy Christmas and see you on 5th Jan!

Which sums it up quite nicely really. The enforced a cappella worked out well when the generator refused to power our piano. Thanks to our pianist, Jeremy, for stepping in and doubling the bass section!
