Sinfonia Chorus to sing in Saltburn

The 50-strong Northern Sinfonia Chorus is to stage a free hour-long concert at Emmanuel Church, off Windsor Road, at 6pm.

Organiser Peter Davison, of the Saltburn150 group, which is coordinating events to mark the town's 150th birthday, said: "This first visit of the chorus to Saltburn is generating a lot of excitement not only in the town, but within a 30-mile radius.

Organiser Peter Davison shows a poster of the Northern Sinfonia Chorus, which is making
 its first visit to Saltburn on Sunday. A one-hour concert, including early Church anthems
and folk songs, will be free of charge.
"Scores of people are interested in coming after learning of the concert, which will have a lot of variety in it. The church is an excellent venue with good acoustics. It can seat 500, including people on chairs at the back, " said Mr Davison, a teacher, of Guisborough.

"The programme will be a mix of choral music from across the centuries and across the world, from early church anthems by Tallis to arrangements of folk songs by Holst."

More information can be had from Mr Davison, who will introduce the programme, on 01287-635316.
