Ho ho ho!
Our annual Christmas Concert is coming around faster than ever, and soon it’ll be time to dust the snow off your boots, grab a hot chocolate (or mulled wine!) and bring the family to our fun, music filled celebration.
Hosted by actress, impressionist and star of BBC Radio 4’s Dead Ringers, Jan Ravens, the RLSB Christmas concert will be a time to reflect on the achievements of blind and partially sighted young people in 2016. The evening will also feature the debut of the newly formed RLSB Choir!
The RLSB Choir is made up of blind and partially sighted young people and is led by professional opera singer, Victoria Oruwari. She’ll be conducting the choir through a wonderful selection of festive songs and carols that will get you into the Christmas spirit.
Host, Jan Ravens, says: “I am so looking forward to the Carol Concert on December 1st, it will really start the festive season off with a gorgeous flourish. And I couldn’t be happier to help raise funds for blind children. Life is challenging enough for us all, but imagine how scary it must be to negotiate a world that you can’t see as well as other people. It is vital that we all try and raise as much as we can to give these kids all the support they need to take all the opportunities they can and achieve their full potential. And sing our hearts out too!”
