The Berrima Singers will present a variety of carols old and new at St Judes Church, Bowral, on December 10.

The performance, which will include two motets by the 17th century German composer Heinrich Schütz, will begin at 7pm.

It will also feature Imogen Elvis soprano, Yvonne D’Arcy piano and Robert Smith organ. 

The Singers will be performing a brand new work especially written for them by local composer Ann Carr-Boyd. “Leaf Fall”, with words by choir member Meg Miller, is a graceful and atmospheric piece for singers and piano evoking the beauties of Autumn.

A witty setting of some Ogden Nash animal poems by American composer Eric Whitacre introduces a more frivolous note to the proceedings. The event will conclude with audience and choir singing well-loved and popular carols.

Supper will be held at the end of the evening.

Entry is $10 for adults and children are free.
