'Music in May' 3 lunchtime concerts in Christ Church

A series of 3 lunchtime concerts entitled 'Music in May' will be held in Christ Church Parish this month. They begin on Tuesday 15th May with renowned local violinist Hayley Howe playing a selection of classical and popular showstoppers, accompanied by Christ Church organist Richard Yarr; an opening concert not to be missed!

On Tuesday 22nd May, the outstanding soprano Sheelagh Greer will make a welcome return to Christ Church. Sheelagh will also be accompanied by Richard Yarr with a solo spot for award-winning Lisburn pianist - John Wilson, one of the Lisburn's rising stars.

Waringstown Primary School Choir will round off the series on Tuesday 29th May. A former BBC Songs of Praise Junior Choir of the Year, they are widely recognised as one of the UK's leading primary school choirs, and are set to bring an upbeat programme, sure to send you home with a spring in your step. They will be conducted by Jean Glass and accompanied by Carl McCambley.

The concerts take place in Christ Church at 1.15pm each Tuesday and last approximately 30 minutes. Admission is free; however, retiring donations would be gratefully appreciated.

Members of Christ Church Choir will be serving lunch from 12.15pm on the day of each concert, and they invite you to partake of that too. A meal of salads, dessert and refreshments will be available at a cost of just '5. In light of the demand for lunches last year they would advise early booking; to confirm your place contact the Parish Office on (028) 9267 3271.

Please invite your neighbours and friends and encourage them to break from their usual Tuesday lunchtime routine - whether it be TV, shopping or work - to let music transport them in the beauty of God's house.
