Christmas Concert 2009

OPC-Xmas Saturday 19th Dec 7:30 p.m. Nativity - Petrus Christus
With Oldham Band (Lees)
Oldham Parish Church

Despite a forecast for heavy snow during the evening, this concert was well attended and a great success. The choir sang well under Nigel Wilkinson with accompanist Angela Lloyd-Mostyn and the band performed superbly under visiting conductor Dennis Hadfield. Some of the audience joined the singing of Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus as part of the BBC’s “Sing Hallelujah” project, and of course there were a number of carols for everyone – band, choir and audience.
