Our last concert

Christmas Concert 2022

West End Singers and musical director Simon Irwin provided some choral festivities on the afternoon of Saturday 10 December 2022, at West End Parish Centre. An informal celebration as we made our way through a marvellous cornucopia of musical treats!    

Featuring a bit of everything: an exciting and varied mix from Sinatra to Cyndi Lauper and The Divine Comedy, also including hits from Matilda, Wicked, and a festive flurry of modern and traditional singalong carols!
