Keswick's Own Christmas Proms
This production ended on 02/12/2018
Regular supporters of this well-established Christmas concert will be eagerly looking forward to a festive treat of music and carols, with a sprinkling of humour thrown in.
Professional singers Graeme Danby and Valerie Reid top the bill and this husband and wife team will perform music from light opera, through popular light music to humorous songs by Flanders & Swann, Eric Boswell or Tom Lehrer.
The NASUWT Riverside Band had another successful year, as they beat off the strong competition from the Reg Vardy Band to be champions of the North of England. They therefore qualified for the National Finals in the Royal Albert Hall and later in the year played at The Sage, Gateshead in front of nearly 1000 people. The band play a wide range of music to a high standard, from Big Band numbers to excellent solo pieces from younger members.
A very enjoyable part of the concert for local residents is the appearance of St Herbert's Junior School Choir. With their Musical Director Mrs Shelagh Hughes they present a selection of songs, complete with cheeky extra lyrics and actions. A performance not to be missed.
Prices £18.50, £15; Students, U16s £10
