With Christmas now just around the corner, the Broken Hill Philharmonic Choir is showing off its Christmas cheer with their concert, A Sprinkling of Christmas.
The Concert, the Choirs final performance for the year, will be held at 2.30pm on Sunday at the Musicians Club Auditorium.
The program will feature several Christmas items, as well as songs about Australia, and a bracket of “heavenly” themed songs including Eric Clapton’s Tears in Heaven and Walking in the Air from the movie The Snowman.
Furthermore, the men of the Choir will be presenting two Australian-themed Christmas songs, which they are very much looking forward to doing.
The Broken Hill Civic Orchestra will be the major guest artists for the concert, and they will be very busy throughout the event.
In addition to performing their own pieces, they will also accompany the Choir for one number.
The Civic Orchestra will also, in conjunction with the Choir, lead community singing for some Christmas favourites.
The concert will also feature male vocalist of recent Reedy River fame, Craig Brealey, who will sing a traditional Christmas song, accompanied by Mark Curtis at the piano.
Grace Crannaford, who recently joined the Chor, will sing as the featured choir soloist in her very first concert.
Di Magor, who is the musical director of the Philharmonic Choir, told the Truth that “the choir is always very happy to welcome young singers to their ranks, (and) all the choristers are looking forward to entertaining the public with their fun and diverse program.”
And as always, they could not perform without the aid of their valued accompanist Marilyn Harris.
For Sunday’s concert, tickets will be available for purchase with cash at the door, with adult tickets $15, concession tickets $12, and children’s tickets $8.
A door raffle of two $50 fuel vouchers will also be available for purchase, as part of the Choirs’ fundraiser.
Ms Magor noted that “the choir thanks its major sponsor, Broken Hill City Council, and the Musician’s Club, for the use of their venue.”
