A choir is set to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the death of composer Vaughan Williams by singing one of his works at a winter recital.
The Harrow Philharmonic Choir will stage its annual Christmas carol concert on Wednesday, December 17, at 7.30pm at St George's Church, Pinner View, Harrow. The show will last for 90 minutes.
The programme includes Williams' Fantasia on Christmas Carols, and two new pieces composed by one of the choir's members, for cheering up audiences who are keen on hearing new music.
The performers will be joined by a brass group, a children's choir from Aldenham School in Hertfordshire and handbell ringers from St Mary's Church in Harrow on the Hill.
"Our concert is to welcome the audience for celebrating the upcoming new year," said John Ling, chairman of the choir.
Members are expecting to take a collection for local charities, which will be announced later.
The Harrow Philharmonic Choir was founded in 1959 and is looking forward to celebrating its own 50th anniversary next year. It gives the majority of its performances in Harrow, and contributes towards promoting cultural events in the local community.
