Shropshire Music Trust’s annual Christmas concert features one of the finest choirs in Britain…Ex-Cathedra.

Kate Hogwood, Director of Shropshire Music Trust, said:

“The Christmas season starts here! Ex Cathedra will once again display their uplifting and magical skills to delight audiences looking for that special timeless atmosphere. The concert is performed in Shrewsbury’s splendid civic church lit only by singers’ candles, creating a unique atmosphere; for many people Christmas begins here as they revel in this unique celebration of seasonal music with readings.

“Their concert is Christmas music at its best, and is one of the most popular highlights of the festive season. People can enjoy some beautiful music in a tranquil oasis away from the pressures of consumerism, and the anticipation together with its special essence draws a huge audience back every year!
