The Skipton Choir To Premiere Christmas Peace Song At December Concert
The Skipton Choir will give its first ever performance of a song, written and composed by two key members, at its Christmas Concert at Christ Church on Saturday 2 December.
David Weale and Carol Squire
Called ‘Shine Out’ it has been written by chairman Carol Squire with music by musical director David Weale.
“The song is very much about peace and hope at Christmas. Given everything that is happening around the world at the moment, we felt this would offer the audience a more thoughtful element to the programme.”
“There should be something for everyone – lots of well-known tracks as well as a couple of more considered pieces, including the first public airing of 'Shine Out'. The second half will give everyone a chance to join in and sing along to a selection of Christmas favourites and evergreens.”
Being held in aid of ‘Skipton Step into Action’, the concert will feature a first half mix of musical mashups, upbeat swing and iconic pop classics.
The concert starts at 7.30pm and tickets cost £12.50 (£10 concessions).
