Singers at the JTP Trust invite you to indulge in some festive cheer at their annual Christmas concert ‘A Christmas Garland 2012’, where they’ll perform an array of seasonal numbers for you to enjoy at St Mark’s Church in the Railway Village on Sunday 2 December 2012 at 7.30pm.
Guests will be entertained by talented local singers who recently took part in the sellout show ‘Swindon: The Opera’, together with special guests Yvette Cummings (Soprano), Olivia Clarke (Clarinettist) and Just 4 Fun (Trombone Quartet).
Local opera singer, Yvette Cummings, has an impressive resume which started when she won the Wilfred Greenhouse Allt Prize for Oratorio and Cantata and was runner up in the Elizabeth Schumann Prize for Lieder whilst studing at the Trinity College of Music in London. She was highly commended in the British Music Society Prize and was twice a finalist in the Croydon Symphony Orchestra Competition. Yvette was chosen to take part in a masterclass given by Denis O’Neil as part of the Covent Garden Festival and sang in two masterclasses given by Jonathan Hinden at Glyndebourne.
Fifteen year old Olivia Clarke is sure to dazzle the audience as she displays her Grade 7 clarinet skills. Trombone quartet, Just 4 Fun, made up of members of local bands are back by popular demand following their 2010 appearance. They’ll be accompanying all audience carols and singalong, as well as performing a short set of their own unique items.
Mince pies can be savored and mulled wine sipped during the interval. The evening is expected to finish around 9.30pm. Guests are welcome to turn up on the night, however, prior booking is preferred by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or telephoning 01793 535185. Adults £10, under 12s free.
