Today the Athlone Choral Society with Andrius at the helm continues it’s success with it’s Christmas Concert 2018 on Sunday 2nd December in St Mary’s Church of Ireland, Church Street, Athlone at 6pm. Our distinguished guests are accomplished pianist Daren Lane, who will announce the ‘Arrival of the Queen of Sheba’ and the ‘Lithuania School of Early Music’ featuring the bassoon, an instrument which developed during the Baroque period and is much loved due to the richness of its characteristic gentle and expressive timbre.
As always, enjoy a warming glass of mulled wine at the interval and herald in the Christmas season to the rousing sounds of ‘Gaudete’; be transported to the Swiss mountainsides with Bach’s ‘Sheep May Safely Graze’ & finish on the triumphant notes of Handel’s Hallelujah! Don’t miss it! Tickets €10 available from choir members & on the door.
