Petros Singers Concert: Christ’s Nativity
December 10 @ 7:30 pm
Our Christmas concert this year focuses on the birth of Jesus, from Mary’s annunciation and Joseph’s lineage through to Christmas night itself.
Featuring music from Benjamin Britten’s early choral suite, Christ’s Nativity, alongside works by Bruckner, Pärt, Will Todd, Kerensa Briggs and Yshani Perinpanayagam, the concert will provide a fascinating musical insight into each composer’s reverence for this compelling story.
Join us for candlelight, mulled wine, mince pies and audience carols to get the festive season off to a great start!
Generously supported by Horton and Garton
There will be a retiring collection in aid of London Youth Choirs
