Wellesley Park Primary School Choir joined Wellington Silver Band (WSB) in a celebration of popular Christmas music at St John’s Parish Church at the weekend. Led by Katie Whittle, the choir sang four songs in the programme and then, in the concert’s finale, joined the Silver Band in ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’ and ‘Merry Christmas Everyone’. The audience joined the choir and band in ‘We Wish You A Merry Christmas’ to conclude the concert.
This performance ends a busy schedule for the choir who visited The Old Vicarage and Popham Court Residential Homes during the week. Writing in the school’s newsletter two choir members, Lily Hughes and Jasmine Jones, said, “The Old Vicarage enjoyed our singing so much they gave us a donation for our school. We sang the same songs at Popham Court and really enjoyed ourselves.”
The Training Band of WSB also featured in the concert.
