Christmas date with Dame Kiri
INTERNATIONAL operatic soprano Dame Kiri Te Kanawa will join the Winchester Cathedral Choir at the Lord Lieutenant’s Carol Concert this Christmas.
Tickets are now on sale for the event, which takes place on Friday, December 13 and also includes an appearance from celebrity gardener Alan Titchmarsh, pictured below.
This is the 11th Christmas Concert which Dame Mary Fagan, Lord Lieutenant of Hampshire, will have organised, and her last, so one of her favourite performers has been invited to join Alan and the choir.
The concert raises funds to support the education of the Cathedral’s boy choristers.
Alan and the choir will be putting together their festive combination of readings (some are Alan’s own) and music under the leadership of Andrew Lumsden, director of music at the Cathedral.
Tickets are priced £15 to £45 and are available by calling 01962 857 275 or visiting winchestercathedral.org.uk
