Junior Choirs Christmas Celebration Concert

Saturday 3rd December saw the FYC Junior Choirs perform in their Christmas Celebration at the United Reformed Church in Farnham.  Looking resplendent in their new t-shirt uniforms (making their debut), the atmosphere was also suitably informal and joyful.  FYC accompanist, Matthew Rickard, was kept on his toes throughout, be it on the up-and-down between piano and organ console or on the organ pedals.  The Junior Girls and then the Junior Boys served up festive offerings, including a wonderful arrangement by our own Patrick Barrett of the juxtaposing  “Cold are the People” and “Silent Night”.  The Training Choir joined the Junior Choirs for some movements from Ian Assersohn's "Dies Irae" before providing their own Christmas selection box of musical treats.  Audience Carols ensured all had a share of the festive cheer.  Thanks to all members of the choirs, and to choir directors Patrick, Jo and Sarah, and to accompanist Matthew.
