Our 2016 winter concert took place on Sunday 11th December at Wincanton Sports Centre. The evening was thoroughly enjoyed by both the choir and the audience. Although final figures have yet to be announced it looked like one of the largest audiences the choir have attracted for some years!

Pieces performed in the concert included:

Captain Noah and his Floating Zoo by Michael Flanders and Joseph Horovitz
Rogers and Hammerstein on Broadway, a medley of songs by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein
Fantasia on Christmas Carols – Ralph Vaughan Williams
I hear along our street by S.K. Twiselton

And more!
