Event description

Description

This year for the first time the U3A Christmas Concert will be staged in St Lawrence Jewry next to the Guildhall, London. This is the official church of the Lord Mayor of London and the City of London Corporation. It was re-built by Sir Christopher Wren after the Great Fire of 1666 but there has been a church on the site for around 900 years. After extensive damage in the Second World War, it was again re-built.


Singers from two London based choirs Queldryk Choral Ensemble and City Chorus will perform under the direction of Paul Ayres. Queldryk Choral Ensemble is an ad hoc group of experienced musicians with an interesting and unusual repertoire. City Chorus Choir will celebrate its centenary next year.


Accompanied by mulled wine and a mince pie, the concert will get audience members fully into the Christmas spirit with a range of inspiring seasonal music, old and new. There will be the opportunity to sing traditional carols as well as enjoying a short talk about the history of the Church
