Newcastle University Choir CD Launch

Newcastle University Choir’s CD intends to launch their first CD at the Christmas Concert on 15 December. I’m looking forward to seeing the cover art!! The CD will be available for purchase at the Christmas concert, on the Choir’s website & at other outlets

The CD showcases the Choir’s sound, personality and flexibility. The repertoire has been chosen from choral works that have given pleasure to their audiences over the years, including movements from Messiah and other classical favourites, interesting Christmas music, and jazz with local jazz identity, pianist and composer Terence Koo.
