    Our MD Hilary Campbell is planning another online ‘Stay and Sing’ workshop “…singing an assortment of carols and Christmas songs, from Darke’s gorgeous setting of In the Bleak Midwinter to an arrangement of Winter Wonderland. And, of course, there’ll be some Rutter – it wouldn’t be Christmas otherwise! Just don your Christmas jumper and bring a copy of 100 Carols for Choirs, and we’ll do the rest! It would be lovely if you could join me.” There’s more information at https://www.hilarycampbell.com/stay-and-sing
