Previous Concert
As the yuletide season approaches, the Northampton Bach Choir is gearing up to present its Family Christmas Concert, a much-anticipated event that promises to fill the air with festive cheer and the rich melodies of holiday classics. This year, the concert will feature an array of musical pieces that are sure to resonate with audiences of all ages, set in a welcoming atmosphere perfect for family outings during the holiday season.

The highlight of this year's concert includes Gustav Holst's Christmas Day, a choral fantasy that weaves together well-loved carols into a tapestry of jubilant harmonies, encapsulating the joy and celebration of Christmas. Another standout piece is Gerald Finzi's In terra pax, a composition that reflects on the message of peace amidst the backdrop of a war-torn world, offering a poignant moment of contemplation and hope amid the festive repertoire.

But the concert isn’t just about classical music; it also promises to bring a modern twist to the evening with a selection of favourites, including the Christmas Jazz Medley. This blend of traditional and contemporary tunes ensures that the concert will have something to delight everyone in the audience, from classical music aficionados to those simply seeking to bask in the holiday spirit.

Adding to the magic of the evening, the choir will be accompanied by the Bach Camerata. This esteemed Baroque chamber orchestra is celebrated for its authentic interpretations and performances of Baroque and classical music, promising to elevate the concert experience with their exquisite musicianship and passion for the pieces they perform.

As the festive season unfolds, the Northampton Bach Choir invites you to join them in celebrating the magic of Christmas through music. This concert is a testament to the choir's dedication to enriching the community's cultural landscape and fostering a sense of togetherness during the holiday season. Make sure to mark your calendars for what promises to be an unforgettable evening of music and holiday cheer.

Our concert is given at Cripps Hall Theatre, on the campus of Northampton School for Boys. With comfortable seating and ample parking opposite, it is a perfect venue for our Christmas family festivities.
