Christmas carol concert (December 2018)
One of the highlights of 2018 in Spaldwick was the Carol Party held in Spaldwick Church. It showcased the incredible talent of young local people including Ben Rice, Poppy Hall and the rest of Out of the Shadows, along with Rob and James Burton. Anyone who was not lucky enough to attend can get a taste of the evening by watching the video below. Here you can see saxophonist Rob Burton perform the piece ‘Hallelujah’, accompanied by his brother James. It’s been an amazing year for Rob, winning the Woodwind Final of BBC Young Musician and getting through to the final of the competition – and we were very honoured to have him perform for us.
When the video went live on the website and our Spaldwick Facebook page, the response was amazing with over 3,000 views within a few hours – that’s about 30 times the number of people that attended the concert in person. More videos of the other performers and photos can be found on the Mark Heath Photography website.
