The Bardi Wind Orchestra gave their annual “A Christmas Festival” concert on Saturday December 16th 7.30pm at Holy Trinity Church on Regent Road, Leicester.
The annual Christmas Festival Concert has become one of the highlights of the Bardi concert season and this year the concert was again conducted by Music Director David Calow with seasonal readings by John Florance. Colin Blackler was our compère and we welcomed back Nicky Bingham as our soprano soloist.
A nearly 200-strong audience heard festive favourites including Sleigh Ride, Christmas Festival, In The Bleak Mid-winter, Walking in the Air, Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Jingle bells, Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas and a symphonic suite from the Disney block-buster Frozen. All joined in with the sing-a -long finale of White Christmas and Slade’s Merry Christmas Everybody!
