“On the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me, a partridge in a pear tree……”
Whilst we hope not to be singing this wonderfully entertaining (very annoying) festive song, Ex Urbe Chamber Choir will be hoping to delight you with an evening of seasonal music and popular carols as you start your preparations for Christmas. After the trials and tribulations of the last 18 months or so, what better way to lift your spirits than to listen to live music. The choir will perform both new and familiar pieces alongside popular carols. And not just the choir will be singing as you, the audience, may be invited to join in so bring your best singing voice with you!
Our Christmas Concert will be held in the Parish Church of Hampton-in-Arden starting at 6:30pm.
St James’ Church, Great Packington, CV7 7HG Thu 16th December 2021 @ 7pm
Hosted by The Packington Estate in the magnificent St James’ church set within the Estate grounds, Ex Urbe Chamber Choir are delighted to support Lord and Lady Guernsey by singing carols in support of the mental health charity, Solihull Mind.
Solihull Mind provides a variety of services to those aged between 17 and 65 and who live in Solihull. Services cover three main areas: practical help, counselling and support groups.
The charity evening will be held on Thursday, 16 December starting at 7pm. Tickets are priced at £15 per person (which include a mince pie, or two, and a glass of mulled wine). The Barn at Berryfield has kindly agreed to provide the mince pies, so expect outstanding quality!
Turkey and cranberry sauce, pigs in blankets, mistletoe, chocolate yule logs – of all the elements and traditions that make up the spirit of Christmas, the singing of carols is maybe the most essential. The appeal seems universal and interminable, uniting children and adults in song. Even those too shy or embarrassed to sing will usually join in a carol at Christmas!
Our Christmas Concert this year will be on Saturday, 7 December and will be at Hampton in Arden Parish Church, concert starting at 6:30pm. We shall be singing a number of favourite carols and other Christmas-themed music most of which feature on Classic FM’s list of most-popular Christmas, choral music.
The choir will be joined by the fantastic Stephen Perrins on the organ.
We look forward to welcoming you and getting you in a festive mood!
