Wednesday 15th December 7.00pm Beautiful Star

Have you ever stood in the mountains, no city lights around, looking up, seeing all these stars above you? It's very impressive and it may be that this experience has made many generations before us turn to the stars for company, support or guidance. Every year at Christmas we take the tale of the Star of Bethlehem for granted. The story tells us that it led the three wise men to the birthplace of Jesus. Astronomically speaking it has caused quite a lot of controversy amongst historians and scientists - so we thought we'd just tell its story through music. With Susanne Mecklenburg – voice, William Hancox – piano, Sophie Hebden – oboe and Michael Eisinger – viola. Donations.


Saturday 18th December 7pm: OSJ Handel Messiah

Hallelujah, it’s time for Handel’s Messiah! Don’t miss this festive favourite, featuring the fabulous Hannah Fraser-Mackenzie, Charlie Tetley, Xavier Hetherington and Frazer Scott as soloists Tickets £15 to £20 from www.osj.org.uk


Friday 31st December 6pm OSJ New Years Eve Concert

See in the New Year with us at Dorchester Abbey with a selection of joyful overtures and dances. From all-time favourites such as Strauss’ Blue Danube to lesser known gems such as Änderson’s The Typewriter, you’ll be whistling these tunes into 2022! Tickets £15 to £20 from www.osj.org.uk
