Matlock G&S Singers, who meet weekly at All Saint’s Church Hall, Matlock, are in merry mood. 2022 marks their 30th anniversary as a choir, and musical director Melanie Gilbert wants to make this year’s Christmas concert the best ever.
Says Melanie, ‘Our programme will mix traditional carols with well-loved opera choruses, seasonal songs and solos. Christmas is a time when we all tend to look back over the year, and ahead to a new one. So we’ll affectionately remember our late Queen, and also sing something to herald the coronation of King Charles III.
The G&S Singer’s Christmas concert takes place on Sunday 11th December, at 3pm. The venue is the warm and welcoming ‘Lime Tree’ (Church in the Peak) Lime Tree Road, Matlock DE4 3EJ, where ample free parking is available. The Lime Tree – located at the entrance of Lime Tree Business Park – is just a short walk from the centre of Matlock and there are bus stops at nearby Matlock Green.
Tickets are £10, available on the door, or reserve in advance by ringing Sue, the choir Chairman, on 0780 750 3367.
