[responsivevoice_button voice=”UK English Female” buttontext=”Listen to Post”]

ONE OF THE MOST anticipated annual Christmas performances is set to return in Elgin’s Cooper Park just two days before the ‘main event’.

The park is to host the Moray Concert Brass annual ‘Carols in the Park’ on December 23 at 5.30pm – and once again it will feature many family favourites.

A Carol Sheet will be provided for those who need prompting on the words – and there are few better ways of getting into the Moray Festive spirit.

This year all the donations raised at the concert will go to CLAN Cancer Support, a local charity that provides emotional and practical support to people affected by cancer across northeast Scotland, Moray, Orkney and Shetland.

CLAN helps people in the area with a range of services providing assistance for those with cancer and their families and improving quality of life.

Glenn Munro, Musical Director of Moray Concert Brass, said: “Having battled cancer myself I know only too well the importance of the support and help that CLAN can give to people and I hope we can raise lots of money for this worthwhile charity.”

Moray Concert Brass, which is part of the Moray Council’s Music Centre run by the Musical Instruction Service, do regular concerts throughout the area and have raised money for many charities in recent years including Sarcoma UK, The Alia Coull Foundation, Riding for the Disabled and Breast Cancer UK.

Glenn added: “This concerts is a great way to get in the Christmas mood – and also a fantastic opportunity for us to give a little something back to our communities.”

The concert will be held just outside the library and Cobbs Café will be open both before and during the concert, serving warm drinks and refreshments.
