Christmas is Coming
On Saturday 14th October 2023 we had our last non-Christmas concert for 2023 when we were joined by Sandhurst Military Wives Choir in Holy Trinity Church Guilford for a fabulous “Stronger Together” concert in aid of The Army Benevolent Fund, Surrey Branch.
The full house was treated to a gala of arrangements of popular and songs from the shows and opera by both choirs and poignant songs: The Poppy Red and We Will Remember Them, written after WW1 and performed by Sandhurst Military Wives Choir.
HMVC chorister Simon Cole delivered a moving solo of the beautiful Billy Joel “Lullaby”.
Both choirs were joined by the enthusiastic audience for a mini “Last Night of the Proms” with renditions of Keep The Home Fires Burning, Land of Hope and Glory and Jerusalem.
Audience comments included “Both choirs were terrific, and we thought the whole atmosphere was wonderfully engaging” and “It really was a superb performance”.
Now Christmas is Coming and we are in full swing with preparations for our annual Christmas Carol Concert when we return again to the fabulous acoustic of Holy Trinity Church in Guildford on Saturday 2nd December at 7.00pm.
This time we will be joined by Milford & District u3a choir and proceeds will be shared with Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice Care.
Tickets are available on our website by clicking on the “FUTURE EVENTS AND BOOK TICKETS ONLINE HERE” button on the Home page.
This year the choir celebrates 25 years of concerts in support of The Army Benevolent Fund and once again we will entertain an audience of young and old at the Garrison Church of All Saints Aldershot at 3.00pm on Saturday 9th December.
We will be joined by Barfield School Choir and Odiham Military Wives Choir and our very special guest Santa Claus.

It’s a date for the whole family as Santa will be making his annual appearance in the interval to meet the children and present them with a gift, so please invite all those little people you’d love to spend time with this Christmas.
After all the trauma and isolation of the covid pandemic we look forward to welcoming you to our joyous Christmas celebrations and take the opportunity to wish you and your loved ones Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
