Spokeswoman Jan Summers said: “The Rowland Singers Choral Society are delighted to welcome Alexandra as their guest at the Assembly Hall, Worthing. Alexandra is based in Shoreham. She has enjoyed a varied carer so far performing for royalty, international corporations and MPs all over the country. As well as solo work, Alexandra plays regularly with local orchestras and choral societies and teaches the harp in some Sussex schools.

“She will be performing three pieces of music: Variations Pastorales sur un Vieux Noël pour la Harpe by Marcel Samuel Rousseau (the theme is Noël Nouvelet), Mary’s Lullaby by Nigel Springthorpe and finally the Interlude from Ceremony of Carols by Benjamin Britten.

“The choir will be performing their usual mix of Christmas songs old and new, including Ding Dong Merrily on High, arranged by David Willcocks as well as a few new pieces including The Christmas Bells by T H Jones and The Epiphany Carol with music by L’Estrange. On a lighter note the choir will have your feet tapping with The Most Wonderful Time of the Year and White Christmas.
