Bandstand Christmas Carol Concert at Walsall Arboretum today!

Both Ian Morton-Jones and Kate Goodall contacted me this week to ask me to plug the Christmas Carol Concert at Walsall Arboretum. It is to be held in the newly refurbished bandstand today, Saturday 15th December 2012, from 1:30pm to 2:30pm. It’s free, and will make for a welcome, relaxing break from Christmas shopping.

Again, I can’t promise snow, but Walsall Arboretum is a treat. If you haven’t been in a while, do go check it out. It’s gorgeous. Image by Gary Crutchley, and embedded from his Flickr photo stream.

The organisers had this to say:

The Bath Street Band and Choir along with Walsall Council are delighted to invite everyone to come along and take part in what promises to be the biggest sing-song of the year!

Choirmaster Darryll Prew says ‘We will be signing all the traditional favoutrites, ‘Oh Come All Ye Faithful’, ‘Good KIng Wenceslas’, ‘God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen’ and many more.

There will be a glass of mulled wine or soft drink and a mince pie for each singer. It goes without saying, this event is outside and it is December, so wrap up warm!’

About the musicians:

100 Voices Choir

100 Voices is not a regular choir as such, and it has never yet reached 100 Voices! We are more of a ‘scratch’ choir open to absolutely anyone irrespective of age, experience or even ability!  For that reason, I have no idea how many there will be of us singing Carols, but that is part of the fun!

We just enjoy meeting together to sing and have no visions of grandeur.

100 Voices began as a community event put together to perform at the Caldmore Village Festival and we have performed at each of the three festivals with our numbers being between 16 and 84 singing on the stage.

For further information, please contact Darryll Prew on 07792 473916 – all are welcome to join the fun!

Bath Street Band

Made up mainly of the members of the music team from Bath Street Church in Caldmore plus a couple of friends.

We have performed as the Bath Street Band for around 3 years now, playing in various pubs, Caldmore Village Festival and Mela, different churches and recently we competed in the ‘Live Band of The Year’ contest at The Robin 2 music venue in Bilston. Playing a wide variety of music, our style has been defined as ‘Christian folk/rock’!
