Christmas Concert 2019

The YMS Christmas Concert was at St Lawrence’s Church, York, on Saturday 14th December at 4pm. John Bradbury conducted and David Pipe played the organ. In an enjoyable varied programme, York Brass Quintet provided Christmas music on brass and also accompanied the three audience carols. Kasia Slawksi sang the soprano solo parts especially in extracts from Handel’s Messiah.  Four YMS members took solo parts in our performance of Richard Shephard’s Mass of the Nativity (with the composer in the audience). The church was full and the concert seemed a most enjoyable success all round.
