CHRISTMAS WINTER WONDERLAND “MAGIC OF DISNEY”
The Choir presented their Winter Wonderland Disney concert over two days with performances on Friday, December 13 and Saturday, December 14.
Musical director James Rushman said: “Christmas is a
magical time and this year our concert celebrated the magic of Disney. Songs from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs set the tone for the evening followed by others from Alice in Wonderland, Pinocchio,
Song of the South, Lady and the Tramp, Cinderella and Mary Poppins.”
The choir had immersed itself in rehearsals for this concert which also included a dip into traditional carols, The Muppet Christmas Carol, John Rutter’s beautiful Christmas Lullaby and a medley of songs from Disney on Stage. However, the programme would not have been the same without including the choir’s own unique annual rendition of the Twelve Days of Christmas with lyrics written as usual by concert Producer Chris Allen in his own inimitable style. (We give away mince pies to our audience and then provide them with an opportunity to burn off the calories. See video below!). There were also lots of vocal opportunities for the audience to join in and occasionally sing on their own, which they did beautifully!
There were surprise visits from the White Rabbit (I’m Late) who was cheered when he came in late and a fierce looking wolf (Who’s Afraid of The Big Bad Wolf) who was boo'd and shouted at when he got near to the little pigs! Father Christmas also appeared and handed gifts to the children.
Friday’s concert was in aid of the choir’s chosen charities plus donations to Turning Tides (formally known as Worthing Churches Homeless Project), with Saturday’s concert being in aid of the choir music fund.
This was a great way to end a fun filled year of concerts! Happy Christmas everyone!
