A CHOIR ESPECIALLY FORMED from NHS Grampian staff is set to perform one of two pre-Christmas Carol concerts in Moray.

The Grampian Hospitals Choir have been rehearsing since the start of October ahead of their performances on behalf of CLIC Sergeant at the Beach Ballroom in Aberdeen on December 11.

Three days later their focus will shift to Moray, when the Town Hall in Elgin is the venue for a second concert on Wednesday, December 14 at 7.30pm.

A spokesman for the choir explained why CLIC Sergeant is their chosen cause: “CLIC Sargent is the UK’s leading cancer charity for children and young people, and their families.

“They provide clinical, practical, financial and emotional support to help the families cope with cancer and get the most out of life. They are there from diagnosis onwards and aim to help the whole family deal with the impact of cancer and its treatment, life after treatment and, in some cases, bereavement.”

The concert will inlcude a mixture of carols sung by the choir and well known favourites for the audience to sing along with. Witty and well loved Tim Tricker is conducting the concert, with Isobel Burnie accompanying.

They are joined by the faithful and talented Bon Accord Brass Quintet and Concordia String Orchestra.

Tickets are available now from Sound and Vision in Elgin (01343 556166) priced at £10, £8 for concessions and £5 for under-16s.
