Christmas Music in Shipston

Richard Emms and Stour Singers will be bringing a feast of Christmas music to Shipston-on-Stour this December, with two very different concerts.

On Saturday 12th December, at 7.30.p.m. in St. Edmund’s Church, you will be able to enjoy J.S. Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, parts 4, 5, and 6. Bach brought together 6 cantatas, written when he was Director of the Leipzig Collegium Musicum, as the Christmas Oratorio, first performed between Christmas 1734 and Epiphany 1735. The music is festive, and reflects the virtuoso vocal talents of the international soloists – Robyn Allegra Parton (soprano), Clare McCaldin (mezzo-soprano), Nathan Vale (tenor) and Njabulo Madlala (baritone), together with the Queen’s Park Sinfonia. 

Tickets for this concert cost £12.50 and there is no cost to accompanied children or students.

Then, on Thursday 17th December, there is “The Great Carol Sing” at 7.30.p.m. in the Townsend Hall, when children from Shipston Primary School will be joining Stour Singers to sing a beautiful variety of Christmas music – both poignant and joyful - with lots of opportunities for the audience to join in and sing favourite carols. The ticket cost of £5 includes seasonal refreshments, and there is no cost to children.

Tickets for both events can be obtained from R. Clarke, 27 High Street, Shipston, from choir members, and from Shipston Primary School. Enquiries to Yvonne Ridley – Choir Co-Coordinator – 01789 269587.
