Salisbury Chamber Chorus Christmas Concert
The Salisbury Chamber Chorus’s Christmas concert takes place on Wednesday December 19th to support the excellent work of the Pembroke Unit at Salisbury District Hospital.
The concert is called A German Christmas – it features a lot of German carols, some well-known, some less so, plus a few from a bit further afield (like Sweden and Russia). We will also have special guests the St Thomas’s Handbell Ringers, the Salisbury Frauenchor, and soloists from Voices.
There is a German supper – Bratwurst, Sauerkraut and all the trimmings; Stollen; and a warming glass of Glühwein when you arrive – included in the ticket price, with excellent German wine and Weißbier (or Apelsaft and Sprüdel by way of alcohol-free drinks) available at the bar, and an exceptionally convivial atmosphere in The Medieval Hall, Salisbury, the perfect venue for such a special evening.
And all this jollity will be helping a remarkably good cause that we in the Chamber Chorus have good reason to be grateful to, the Pembroke unit. The Pembroke Unit at Salisbury District Hospital is the specialist treatment centre for people with cancer and blood diseases from across south Wiltshire, north and east Dorset and west Hampshire. The Pembroke Unit incorporates the Pembroke Suite (outpatients) and the Pembroke Ward (inpatients).
Donations to the Pembroke Unit Fund help provide the best for their patients by enabling quicker and more effective treatment. They fund the latest equipment, improve facilities on the ward and day care suite, and enable nursing staff to receive the latest specialist training. You can find out more about how donations make a difference here, or download our leaflet here, or watch the Spire FM produced video here.
A German Christmas is at The Medieval Hall, The Close, Salisbury, at 7.00 pm on Wednesday December 19th. Tickets are £17.50 each and are available in advance only from Genny Davidson Smith on 01722 335486, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re unable to join us, I hope you might consider making a small donation anyway. We’re hoping to raise over £1000.
