Your News: Advent concert delights audience

Have your say

An appreciative audience at Bourne Choral Society’s annual Advent Concert was treated to a varied programme that included performances by soloists Jenny Thompson and Ian Stafford. Under the direction of Jenny Bean, Eric Thiman’s ‘Nativity’ and many other seasonal favourites were enthusiastically sung by the choir and soloists. The concert concluded with carols for audience and choir. Jackie Kirby accompanied Jenny Thompson and Stephen Webb provided piano and organ accompaniment for the choir. This was Stephen’s last official performance as accompanist for Bourne Choral Society and his accomplished and sensitive playing will be missed by all. The Society is still looking for a replacement for Stephen and anyone wishing to apply should contact the society. Visit, call chairman John Riley on 01778 423396 or e-mail

Rehearsals resume on January 20th when the choir will be practising for a performance, on April 12th of Faures Requiem.
