Next Saturday, 8th December, will be a bumper day of music in St Mary & St Giles Church.
During the morning we are holding our third Musical Bite Coffee morning of the season, this one is a Musical Showcase, which celebrates local talent. The programme includes piano, vocal, string, brass, woodwind and organ solos as well as a string quintet from MK Music Service. Refreshments and music will be available between 10:00 am - 12 noon, and Stony Stratford Business Association plan to ceremonially hand over a 'large' cheque for pipe sponsorship.
On Saturday evening we welcome the Linsdale Singers from Leighton Buzzard to Stony Stratford for a concert of Seasonal music for Advent and Christmas. I've seen a copy of the programme and know that this concert promises to be a wonderful musical treat which celebrates the Advent season during the first half of the concert, with well loved pieces such as 'Advent Matin responsory', 'Come thou redeemer of the earth' and 'Creator of the stars of night'. The second half of the concert features light-hearted Christmas songs and sacred choral pieces, including a first performance of 'Christ is born!' by Dennis Pim, who conducts the Singers. Paul Daggett will play the organ during the concert. To purchase programme vouchers online in advance (to be exchanged at the door for the programme) please see http://www.linsdale.org.uk/home.php - prices are £10 (£8 concessions, £1 children).
