Tuesday 17th December. Hallé Christmas Concert
Concert Hall, Nottingham

Most of us started off the evening with a pre-concert meal near to the venue before making our way into the hall. Orchestra and audience were all in festive mood and the concert hall was packed.
The programme for the evening included a variety of music not all relating to Christmas but ranging from Handel and Mozart pieces to well-known late 20th century music.
The soprano soloist, Jennifer France, entertained us beautifully and it was hard to believe that she had only just recovered from flu.
Each piece was introduced by the conductor, Stephen Bell, always with a humorous note and with the inclusion of some very corny cracker jokes. If he ever needs a second string to his bow he could be a passable stand-up comedian. A very enjoyable evening was had by all.
