The Games Maker Choir welcome in Christmas 2019
Christmas 2019 was welcomed and enjoyed by many long term friends and some new ones too, at a delightfully Christmassy concert in our rehearsal venue of St Michael’s Church, Wandsworth Common, on the first Saturday of December 2019.
For two hours on this busy pre-Christmas Saturday, the Games Maker Choir celebrated our ‘choir family’ with no less than 18 songs, a review of all we had achieved this year (with a hint of 2020 plans) plus two delightful readings from choir members; sharing some impressive poetic and acting talents to add to the musical offerings.
The songs performed were a mix of Christmas carols and classics, along with some from our growing repertoire and – in true Games Maker Choir style, the languages mastered included Hebrew, Latin and medieval English.
Christmas is all about family and friends – and it was an honour to share this special event with such an appreciative audience.
There are two more Christmas concerts to come in 2019; at the Victoria and Albert Museum on the 13 December and with Alistair Griffin at St James’ Church, Hampton Hill on the 14th.
