The celebrated composer, jazz musician, community choir director and educator, Alexander L’Estrange, will lead the morning’s session on his Christmas Piece, Wassail! (2017) which Lymington Choral Society will perform on 14 December. This highly approachable piece is an imaginative reworking of twelve traditional carols using a five-piece jazz ensemble, adult choir and children’s choir. The session promises to be a lively and fun way to get to know both the music and the composer. Michael Goldthorpe, Lymington Choral Society’s Musical Director since 2006 will lead the following sessions on a series of light-hearted pieces suitable for encores.
The Choral Society’s Fundraising Lunch is at 1pm on Friday, 1st November 2019 at the Milford Community Centre, Sea Road, Milford-on-Sea.
Tickets £6.00 on sale at the door only on the day. Ample parking in carpark beside the centre.
