Louth Choral Society will perform their Christmas concert, ‘The Christmas Story’, by Heinrich Schütz, on Sunday December 21, 7.30pm at St James’s Church in Louth.
A Christmas favourite, it is scored for soloists and choir in up to six parts and accompanied by members of the Lincolnshire Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Richard Crossland.
Taking the soprano solo will be Margaret Crossland, a singer who has used her voice to charm audiences with imaginative recitals and by exploring interesting and challenging areas of repertoire. A pupil of Helga Mott, William McAlpine and latterly Pamela Cook, she has worked for many years as a professional soloist and ensemble singer, recording for the BBC, and for the EMI and Cala labels.
And Louth Choral Society are delighted to welcome back tenor soloist, Mark makes regular appearances on the concert platform both in the UK and abroad.
The concert will include festive music and carols to begin the Christmas celebrations. Included in the programme will be Louth Junior Choir, directed by Kate Whitney, who are sure to delight the audience.
