Ring Out the Old, Ring in the New!
A Feast of unusual Festive Songs celebrating Winter and the New Year
with Coast Singers, and local groups Hummingbirds and Gallus
Saturday 2nd December, 7.30pm
Final preparations are under way for the 2017 Coast Arts Christmas Concert in the Lighthouse in Sheringham on 2nd December. The community choir, the Coast Singers, has come together specifically for this concert. The rehearsals, led by Natasha Hood, are under-way. “I love bringing together singers in this way, to give people a chance to rehearse and show the results in a concert”, said Natasha. “We’ve performed several similar events over the last few years and they are always enjoyed by the singers and the audience”.
This Christmas concert is an inspiring mix of songs, both old and new, celebrating the winter and, especially the New Year. The program includes old lesser-known carols such as The Roby Mill New year Carol from Yorkshire, a northern England wassailing song, ‘Da Day Dawn’ based on a very old fiddle tune for the new year from the Shetlands, and two versions of ‘Auld Lang Syne’.
As an extra feature this year the singers will be joined by two guest groups: Gallus, led by Andrew Gilling and Hummingbirds, led by Emma Askew
