A CHRISTMAS To Remember, a seasonal massed voice choral concert, marks the end of a remarkable year for Ewa Salecka and Greg Birch's two York community choirs, Millegro and Prima Vocal Ensemble, on Saturday night.

The groups have given live concerts from Barcelona to New York's Carnegie Hall, with many sold-out performances closer to home including two autumn evenings with flamenco guitar maestro Eduardo Niebla at St Chad's Church and this month's release of Prima's new album, Bright Days Are Here.

Following on from their joint concert at York Theatre Royal for Le Grand Départ for the Tour De France this summer, the two choirs join forces once again on Saturday for a 7.30pm programme of Yuletide music at St Michael le Belfrey, York.

"I have a keen instinct for inspiring both singers and our audiences," says artistic director Ewa.

"I'm committed to offering York a choral experience unlikely to be heard elsewhere and Saturday's show is certainly no exception. From contemporary interpretations of traditional carols to unforgettable festive tunes of recent years, the emphasis as always, is on entertainment and contrast, with music ranging from the pen of Ola Gjeilo, John Rutter and David Wise all the way through to Eartha Kitt and Shane McGowan of The Pogues."

Ewa, pianist Greg and the choirs will be joined by host Norman Webster for a concert that sold out a month ago.
