Christmas Comes To St Asaph Care Of A Male Voice Choir And A Brass Band
Townsfolk Flock To Woodyard Warehouse For A Joint Christmas Carol Concert Featuring The Trelawnyd Male Voice Choir And The Cadishead Public Band
After enjoying a warming cup of mulled wine, members of the audience were treated to a varied programme of Christmas favourites performed both in English and Welsh before being invited to sing along.
The Trelawnyd Male Voice Choir led by musical director Geraint Jones started the evening with some classic performances before the Cadishead Public Band, a traditional brass band from Salford, gave the audience a taste of their impressive repertoire.
The evening continued with the band, led by musical director Peter Bates, providing a Yuletide sound track for the 60-strong choir’s rendition of a series of Christmas classics.
As members of the audience enjoyed a post performance hog-roast Mr Allan Stockwin, chairman of OAQ Ltd said: “I love Christmas and carols and our celebration event last year was such a success that we decided to carry on what seems to have become a tradition.
“We decided to bring in a traditional brass band this year to give the audience a greater range of musical styles but all with a Christmas theme and I think the audience really enjoyed themselves.
“As far as I am concerned our Christmas carol concert will be an annual event. It’s an excellent way to say thank you for your support to our customers, our staff and to the people and businesses of St Asaph.”
OAQ Managing Director Julia Stockwin added: “It was a wonderful evening and the performances were superb. It’s a great way of giving something back to the community we work in.”
Donations from guests on the night were given to St Kentigerns Hospice in St Asaph.
