Monday 11th December at 7.30pm in Ellon Parish Church.
The Ythan Singers’ Christmas concert is on Monday 11th December at 7.30pm in Ellon Parish Church. The concert features movements from John Rutter’s beautiful “Magnificat” followed by many Christmas favourites including “The Huron Carol, “Ding Dong Merrily on High”, In the Bleak Mid-winter, and the “Nativity Carol”. The audience will be given a chance to join in with well-known carols as well.
All are very welcome and it is certainly a concert not to be missed. There will be a collection on the door for the charity “toilet twinning” (www.toilettwinning.org) which is a water and sanitation initiative. A spokesperson for the choir said that “it is shocking in the 21st century that there are many people in the world who do not have access to clean water and adequate sanitation and therefore we are delighted to support this initiative through proceeds from our concert”.
After the concert everyone is welcome to join the singers for tea/coffee/mince pies and shortbread.
FIRST RESPONDER PRESENTATION
At their rehearsal on Monday the Ythan Singers were delighted to present a cheque for £900 to Ellon First Responders.
The money was raised at the choir's summer concert in June and will help this new group, whom the Scottish Ambulance Service describe a Community First Responder as a member of the public who volunteers to help their community by responding to medical emergencies while the ambulance is on its way, with equipment.
The June concert was conducted by Mrs Alison Young who took up the post of Musical Director for the Ythan Singers after Christmas.
The Singers are now rehearsing for their Christmas concert on December 11th at 7.30pm in Ellon Parish Church and features John Rutter's Magnificat and a selection of Christmas music, including some well known and well loved carols.
