St. Monica’s Church, Irlam Road, Flixton

Urmston Choral Society is to perform ‘The Manchester Carols’, a festive suite of new carols re-telling the Christmas story, first performed at the Royal Northern College of Music by school-children from around the Manchester area in December 2007.

Written by former poet laureate, Carol Ann Duffy, and composer, Sasha Johnson Manning, the carols celebrate Jesus’s birth in exceptional circumstances and tell the story of how he championed the marginalised in society.

The concert will take place at St. Monica’s Church, Irlam Road, Flixton, on Wednesday, December 18, starting at 7.00pm.  The Choir, who will also sing a selection of traditional Christmas carols, will be joined by children from St. Monica’s school who will delight the audience with their own festive renditions.

Tickets priced at £8 and £2 (students/children), can be purchased from Maxine Summers, Tel: 0161 748 0903.

Said the Choir’s Musical Director, Julie Parker: “Manchester has a long history of being the pioneers of change in society as well as welcoming marginalised people from many areas of the world.  ‘The Manchester Carols’ celebrates our community spirit and cosmopolitan way of life while reminding us what a joyful and magical time of year this is.”
