A choral group is preparing for its first indoor concert since the pandemic began.

Weston Choral will host two performances of Bob Chilcott’s Christmas Oratorio on December 4 at 7pm and 8.30pm.

The community event will feature singers from Worle Community School and members of the audience taking part.

The group's soloist is the renowned tenor, Peter Davoren, who sang at this year’s BBC Proms. 

Worle School Youth Choir and Ensemble Inspirita will also be performing.

It is going to be performed twice on the same night in an attempt to get more audience through the doors as the group is Covid limited in terms of numbers.

The group has been supported for this concert by the Paragon Music Trust.
