We’re very grateful to Raunds Community Choir who have asked us to perform at their Christmas concert. The choir is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year (actually it was last year but celebrations have been delayed). So the concert is a special one for them and they have invited back guests from previous concerts, including us. We played at their Christmas Wassail Evening back in 2017.
This year’s event starts at 7pm on Saturday 11th December 2021 at the Saxon Hall in Raunds. We’ll be playing some Christmas music during the interval and then performing a few pieces during the second half. Audience numbers are limited due to Covid restrictions but do visit the choir’s Facebook page using the link below if you’re interested in attending.

The event included performances by the choir and by students from Manor School as well as some poetry readings and community carols. We played some of our favourites including parts of the Connemara Suite, Carnavalito and, in a festive mood, the traditional Spanish Christmas song ‘Brincan y Bailan’.
