Christmas concerts with Eastbourne's Concentus choir
Spokeswoman Chrissie Higgins said: “If you’re looking for a warm friendly welcome with a mince pie thrown in to start of your festivities, then look no further. This year Concentus is raising funds for Chestnut Tree House and would love to bring in as much as they can for this very worthwhile local cause so will be very happy to see as many people in the audience as possible.
“Both performances start at 4pm – so nobody has to miss Strictly! The event venues are Seaford Baptist Church in Belgrave Road on December 9 and St Saviour’s, South Street, Eastbourne on December 16.”
Concert tickets are priced at £12 for adults (£14 on the door) and £6 (£7 on the door) for under-16s, under-fives free; tickets for these events are available from the box office on 01323 912770; on the door; Newberry Tulley Estate Agents, 53 Church Street Seaford; Howden Insurance, 7-9 Cornfield Road, Eastbourne; Eastbourne Tourist Information Office or www.TICKETSOURCE.co.uk/Concentus.

"Concentus means agreement, harmony or unity and this defines the very spirit of the choir. Adrian White, our musical director, strives to ensure that harmony exists not just in the musical notes that are sung but also in the way that choir members are cared for. Adrian, along with the committee members, work hard to ensure that Concentus truly is Eastbourne’s choir with a heart!
“We sing a little bit of everything really! From Faure’s Requiem and pieces from The Messiah to toe-tapping medleys from Abba and Queen. We sing together (currently over 60 members), in large groups, mid groups, small groups and with soloists. We have sung on Eastbourne’s bandstand, in the Town Hall, at the Station, at St Wilfrid’s hospice, on The Pier, on the rugby pitch at Twickenham, at Trafalgar Square, in a curry restaurant and in pubs.”
