03 December 2017


For the Past 34 years the annual Christmas Carol Concert has been a key fundraising event in support of the Charity in this area and this year is no exception.

Ee have the The Hospitals’ Choir is drawn from a wide variety of people connected with the medical profession and includes members of The Northern Doctors Chorus and staff from: many other organisations.

The New Tyneside Orchestra. Conducted by Monica Buckland (musical director), was founded in 1970, the orchestra is no longer very “new” but when Stephen Pettitt had the idea of forming a full-scale amateur symphony orchestra, there was the inevitable problem of what to call it. There had already been a “Tyneside Orchestra” so one word and the NTO was born. Since then they have more than doubled in size numbering more than seventy; members come from all walks of life and the age range extends from students to retired people. We are all amateurs so we play because we want to – and we welcome the challenge of playing a wide range of great works for full orchestra.

King’s Priory School Choristers and Senior Choir Directed by Elizabeth Johnston, continues a 34-year musical history supporting this charity through many generations of pupils. We have Highfield Middle School Prudhoe whose Choir is directed by Lyndsay Gibson are performing for the third time.

The Choir of Saint Joseph’s RC Middle school Hexham under the direction of Philip Rosier and Cullercoats primary school choir directed by Katherine Raine both for the second time. A perfect example of young people supporting their peers.

We will be joined again this year by the CLIC Sargent singers, young Cancer survivors who have benefited from the support provided by CLIC Sargent and who will attend the Summer music workshops to be held soon.
