01 Nov 2021

Acclaimed opera singer Wynne Evans, principal tenor with Welsh National Opera will be delighting the audience at Shrewsbury Choral’s spectacular Christmas Concert in Shrewsbury Abbey on Saturday, December 4, at 7.30 pm.

Joining the choir will be Meole Brace School Choir, Prestfelde School Choir, Meole Brace Chamber Orchestra, and members of Shrewsbury Abbey choir.

Thelma Foster, Chairman of Shrewsbury Choral said: “Everyone is very excited that Wynne Evans will be singing solos with the orchestra and with the massed choirs as well as entertaining us with personal anecdotes. In fact, he has agreed to compère this concert!

"The programme includes well-known Christmas music for the orchestra such as composer Leroy Anderson’s famous Sleigh Ride and dances from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker Suite. There will be special Christmas songs from school choirs and adult choirs as well as massed items for everyone, including the audience! So if you want to sing some of your favourite Christmas songs, like The Twelve Days of Christmas, or O Come all ye faithful, or you just want Christmas music to flood over you, this a concert not to be missed!”
