Christmas Concert at the Loddon Valley Centre, December 9th

 

            I enjoyed the Christmas Concert greatly. From the opening bars of  “Once in Royal David’s City” to the closing airs of “Hark the Herald Angels sing” it was a thrilling performance.

             The Berkshire Maestros made the music. They set a lively pace with their medley of Leroy Anderson’s “Christmas Festival” , and quickened it to sound of the lashing whip on Leroy’s dashing Sleigh Ride.  The massed Chilren’s choirs were spirited over the Calypso Carol and the Philippine Carol. They enchanted with “Away in a manger” and entertained with “Santa Claus is coming to town.”

              I would like to say a big “Thank you” to all the teachers, Council staff  and parents who made it possible. I also want to thank the Maestros, who once again put on a stunning production.  It is always a big part of Wokingham’s Christmas. This year lived up to expectations.  James Baker is a skilled and enthusiastic conductor, who brings the best out of the performers.
