Christmas concert

Sun 10 Dec 2017, 3pm, St Marks Church, Broomhill

Fundraiser for South Yorkshire Refugee Law And Justice. And a chance to have twinkly festive loveliness! The acclaimed Sheffield Chamber Choir, under the direction of Robert Webb, returns to St Marks at Broomhill (near Hallamshire Hospital) to serve up Christmassy choral delights in "Christmas à la Carte".

You, the audience, will choose what music you hear from an extensive menu divided into five courses representing different ages of choral music. The choir provides the menu; you choose what they sing! Each audience member will have a vote before each course to choose the items the choir will sing. As an added bonus, the concert is free to enter.

At the end there will be a collection for South Yorkshire Refugee Law and Justice; audience members will be invited to donate depending on their enjoyment of the musical meal. The concert will last just over an hour, and be followed by festive refreshments at around 4.15pm.
