A variety of songs and festive music old and new will be performed when the Local Vocals Choir holds a Christmas Concert at Wellsford Community Centre on Saturday, December 9, at 7pm.
The entertainment will range from traditional carols and Maori songs to children’s storytelling and all new music.
The concert will be the second public outing for the Local Vocals Children’s Choir, whose members will be singing four numbers, two with the adult choir and two by themselves.
Choir member and songwriter Miriam Chalk says that as well as the full choir singing, there will be several smaller groups, including a group of four singing a capella and a ukulele and kazoo duet.
“It’s a real country Christmas concert, something for all ages to enjoy,” she says.
Tickets cost $5 for adults, or $10 for a family group that includes two or more adults, and children are free.
Supper will be provided by the choir afterwards for a gold coin donation.
