WESTPORT CHILDREN’S CHOIR CHRISTMAS CONCERT
Wednesday, 11th December 2019
Tickets: Adult €10 / Child/Oap: €7 / Family of 4: €30
In the depths of winter, we celebrate the turning of the year with songs to lighten the heart and sustain the soul. Westport Children’s Choir’s Winter Concert showcases the pure and beautiful voices of forty talented local children and young people in a varied programme of Christmas music old and new, familiar and exotic, from upbeat jazz numbers to atmospheric traditional songs from Puerto Rico, Spain and Russia. This year we warmly welcome Aleksandr Nisse on piano, Matthew Berrill on clarinet, Dierdre Lynn Rogers on flute and Donal Hoban on drums, along with some special surprise guests to be announced.
Westport Children’s Choir was founded in 2011 and is directed by Eriko Uehara Hopkinson, with the aim of bringing the joy of choral harmony to the children of Westport and the surrounding area. In recent years the choir has performed in, among other places, Prague, Vienna, and Carnegie Hall, New York.
