The Music and Merriment Concert 2/12/23

Music and Merriment is a big annual community Concert in St Mary’ church Winkfield. It is a fund-raiser for the fabric and facilities of the church as a community asset.

This year it is being held at 7:30 pm on Saturday 2 December. It offers a full evening of entertainment for everybody, with adult and children’s choirs, festive readings, audience carols, handbells and instrumentalists, and more.

Our performers are people from our area: local singers, adult and children, local musicians, and other talented performers. In each concert we also have included performances by two very talented young musicians, as well as by excellent adult musicians.The young star performers this year are Sarah, violinist, who will be familiar to regular attendees of the Concert, and also multi-talented Darcey, who sings, plays the piano amazingly, and is also a percussionist. This year, she will be bringing her marimba, which is like a supercharged xylophone.
