Standing room only at Hallellujah concert
Wednesday, 9th December 2009.
Over 100 people came to enjoy Haverhill Choral Society’s Choral Christmas concert on Sunday evening, in All Saints Church, Hundon - more than the number of chairs available.
The audience applauded renditions of fun classics like Twelve Days of Christmas, sat silently through lullabies and sang heartily along with the carols.
As promised, the group gave the audience a chance to join the choir as part of the BBC’s national Sing Hallelujah campaign.
Over half the audience took up this opportunity, swelling the choir into the pews as they joined either to sing or to listen while Hallelujah was performed!
Hallelujah also presented an opportunity to raise money for Children in Need and a total of £119.62 was raised on the night.
Haverhill Choral Society would like to thank Nigel Brown for accompanying on the organ and a highly polished brass quintet which entertained with medleys of festive tunes.
Anyone interested in joining the choir is welcome at their new rehearsal venue, Samuel Ward Arts and Technology College studio, on Monday nights from January 4, 7.25pm. No audition necessary, all past or curious singers welcome!
