Two coaches of members visited a packed Albert Hall for John Rutter's annual Christmas Celebration concert. 
With an all-star line-up of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Bach Choir, the Choristers of St Albans Cathedral and renowned baritone Roderick Williams all under the direction of John Rutter, the audience were royally entertained to a feast of Christmas music and carols, with lots of audience participation along the way.
Among the items was a 'Coronation Retrospective' which included some of the music which was performed at the recent Coronation as well as many other well-known carols and festive music. 
A feature of this show is the RPO Christmas Quiz - enthusiastically conducted by John Rutter - which , this year, featured names of recent Prime Ministers!
The popularity of this show with members is demonstrated by the fact that we had to disappoint over 60 members as we were oversubscribed very quickly, something we will try and rectify next year. 
Many members said how happy they were with the event including this comment from a long-established RSTC member:

Last night....better than last year....if that is possible 

another ROSE STREET triumph 

Thanks a lot

A Happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year to you all from the RSTC Committee.
