Our 2018 Christmas concert in Oxshott . . .
. . was again given to a full house. The featured work was Vivaldi's Gloria,
accompanied by Christmas carols for choir and audience, and with the
traditional hot mince pies and sausage rolls in the interval. The charity to benefit this year was Surrey Care Trust, whose work you can find out about here. The retiring collection raised over £1,000 for them.
