Christmas Concert @ The Royal Concert Hall

The Halle Christmas Concert 

Roderick Dunk conductor
Lance Ellington singer

Programme includes
Rimsky-Korsakov Dance of the Tumblers
Waldteufel The Skater's Waltz
Fauré Pavane
Britten Men of Goodwill
Hairston Mary's Boy Child
Tchaikovsky Christmas Tree and Pas de Deux from The Nutcracker
Elfman The Nightmare before Christmas
Pola/Wyle It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year
Tormé The Christmas Song
Silvestri/Ballard Suite from The Polar Express
Anderson A Christmas Festival - Overture

With a heavenly host of popular Christmas numbers from Let it Snow to White Christmas.

Putting some swing into this festive concert is singer Lance Ellington, who'll be familiar to millions from his many solo appearances with the band for Strictly Come Dancing. Backed by the sumptuous sounds of the Hallé, he'll be driving out the cold with heart-warming seasonal songs from the likes of Mel Tormé and Irving Berlin.

Elsewhere there's a stocking full of popular classics from Rimsky-Korsakov, Waldteufel and Tchaikovsky and, in his centenary year, a wonderfully imaginative take on God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen from Benjamin Britten. Throw in some glittering film scores from Danny Elfman and Alan Silvestri and you won't need tinsel to add some sparkle to your Christmas preparations.

I'll update to let you know which seats we'll be in.  Tickets are available from the box office or online here.

We can arrange to meet at the interval, and perhaps go for a drink after the concert if people would like to.  The Orange Tree is just around the corner. :-)

    Hello again...
    Just to let you all know that our internet is not working at home at the moment, so I won't see any last minute messages or RSVPs after about 3.30.
    See you later this evening!

    Hi everyone, I'm really looking forward to this concert! James and I will be in the ground floor foyer (where the ticket office is located) at around 7.00-7.15. If we don't meet up with you all then, we'll hang around by the ice cream and drink stand during the interval (the one nearest the stalls).
    I know that I mentioned going for a drink afterwards when I first scheduled this meetup, but it's unlikely now as I've been feeling a bit under the weather this week. Hope that's OK with you all!
    If anyone has any questions please let me know, and James and I will see you on Wednesday!

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
