Christmas Concert

All

Some of you might be aware that I play the violin for the Birmingham Philharmonic Orchestra. We have our annual Christmas concert with the Birmingham Ciy Chorus in Birmingham Town Hall on Sunday 18th December at 14.30pm. Albeit it is not everyoneís cup of tea, but if any of your are interested please come along and show your support and enjoy lots of festive pieces.

Tickets and more information are available at THSH –*Welcome to Town Hall & Symphony Hall Birmingham and I hope to see some of you there!

And I've been hired in to boost the tenor line, so double the reason to go! And the two soloists are both neighbours of mine, including the current headchorister of Worcester Cathedral Choir with whom I sing on a daily basis. Worth a listen!

Probably won't get a chance to try the beers as I'm sharing a lift with the boss and the two soloists

I will never forget sawing through the viola part of Handel's Messiah one Christmas for an amateur choral society I hadn't played for before on the promise of "The usual amount", only to open my much anticipated envelope with my tired right arm when I got home to find a £10 gift voucher.

There's someone that drinks in my local (The Prince of Wales - Moseley) that also plays the violin for them. You must know him.
