The Choir opens Caldicot’s Christmas Festivities

On a gloriously sunny but cold Saturday afternoon on the 25th November, Caldicot Male Voice Choir was pleased to accept an invitation to open the afternoon of Christmas celebrations and activities which included the turning on of the Christmas lights in Caldicot’s town centre as darkness approached.

Following introductions and invitations to join the choir by Steve Drawley, the choristers, Musical Director Sian Hatton and accompanist John Nicholson all warmly wrapped in burgundy fleece jackets and adorned with festive hats entertained the watching crowds of shoppers to 30 minutes of a range of Christmas songs and carols. Opening with the uplifting ‘Joy to the World, Joy to the World’ the singing soon brought the shoppers and children around to listen.

The varied programme continued with ‘Mary’s Boy Child’, ‘Silver Bells’, ‘While Shepherd’s Watch and Wise Men Wonder’, ‘God Rest You Merry Gentlemen’,’Casatchok’, When a Child is Born’, a delightful public premiere of ‘Little Drummer Boy’ and finalised with a Christmas medley which included ‘Jingle Bells’ joined in enthusiastically by the watching audience.
