Nantwich - St Mary's Church frontage (1)

The Nantwich Singers are presenting two free Christmas performances in St Mary’s Church to help lift the spirits of the community.

After over six months in lockdown, the Nantwich Singers return to their home to give a pair of informal performances on December 12.

In a Christmas season where carol singing and live concerts will be much less frequent, the Nantwich Singers will perform a programme entitled “The Magic of Christmas”.

This will feature classic carols as well as newer works from composers such as Gabriel Jackson, Gail Randall, Morten Lauridsen, and Peter Warlock.

The choir will also feature music from “Multitude of Voyces: Sacred Music by Women Composers”, the first volume of a new series that exists to support under-represented communities through choral music.

Excerpts of the concert will also be available for streaming online.

The choir is eager to offer the community an escape for Christmas and a glimpse of more positive times to come.

The concerts also mark the debut concert appearances for the choir’s dynamic new music director, Jake Barlow.

After taking up his position on the podium in January, the Crewe-based conductor and vocalist is delighted to be at the helm.

He said: “In my musical career I have rarely been as excited about a choir as I am about the Nantwich Singers.

“Even in times as challenging as these, they have approached everything with a professionalism and dedication that makes being their conductor a pleasure and a privilege.

“They have adapted to new ways of working very quickly, and I am so pleased to be able to show the community and wider world some of the the results of all their hard work.”

The concerts will take place at 3pm and 7pm on Saturday December 12.

In order to keep the concert safe for everyone involved, the concerts will be following a number of extra safety precautions in line with current government guidelines including socially distant seating, face coverings, and stewards to seat people safely.

Tickets are free, but booking is compulsory.
