Christmas Carol Service Poster - Made with PosterMyWall.jpg

ViA's very popular Christmas Concert with the return of the very talented Kinder Ringers ( hand bell ringers ) and Roy Parrish (oboe). Further information to follow.

With just over a week to go before 'the night' everything is now nicely coming together for our Christmas Concert.

The rehearsals have been going well as all those taking part have been putting the finishing touches to their pieces.
ViA will be joining with the Kinder Ringers again  to perform the Ukrainian Bell Carol and Christmastime. 
The Kinder Ringers will enthrall us all with A Jingle Bells Fantasia , Dance of the Icicles and White Christmas.

ViA will be joining guitarist Geoff Brunt to tell the Story of Silent Night. Geoff wowed the audience with his playing at our Ukrainian Charity Concert last October.

ViA will also be joining Roy Parish - oboe and Pete Struggles - bar chimes
to perform In the Silence incorportating  a traditional Appalachian Carol arranged for SATB a cappella choir, oboe and bar chimes.
The stirring scene at the manger serves as the foundation of this Christmas work. The tranquil a cappella setting along with the bar chimes and an oboe obbligato, recreates the sense of mystery surrounding that night in Bethlehem.
