Wadebridge Choral Society’s Christmas Invitation

Wadebridge Choral Society was founded over 35 years ago and has grown since then into a choir

that has performed three concerts every year since then. Needless to say, Covid-19 put a stop to

rehearsing and performing and the members kept in touch so that in 2021, the Choir was able to

reform and prepare for a Summer concert. Numbers were small at this stage, with many unsure of

the wisdom of joining a large group. In the event, with the proper precautions taken, the Spring

concert went ahead successfully – and the Choir was back in business.

Keys to the success of the Choir are a dedicated committee and the inspirational Director of Music,

Nicholas Danks, a widely experienced choral conductor and formerly Director of Music at St

Martin in the Fields, London. Two further concerts have taken place since then, the latest, this

Summer, featuring ‘A Cornish Cantata’ composed by David Briggs for the Choir’s 25 th anniversary

for choir and orchestra, but on this occasion with Paul Foster accompanying on piano. A great


With the Choir now back to full strength, the Christmas concert will take place at Egloshayle

Church on Saturday December 17th . The two major works will be Poulenc’s wonderful ’Gloria’, and

Karl Jenkin’s ‘Joy to the World’. There will be lots of carols, of course. Some for the Choir and

others for all to join in. All in all a proper preparation for Christmas.

Tickets will be on sale at The Wadebridge Bookshop, and will be available from Choir members

and on the door on the day. This promises to be a popular concert, so book early.
