Christmas is Coming – St Andrews Eaton, Sunday December 6 2015

cropped-publicity-shot.jpgChristmas is a-coming and our concert at St Andrews, Eaton, just south of Norwich, put an encouragingly full house into the most festive of moods.

The Jay Singers have performed at Eaton on many occasions and on this were delighted to be back under the baton of our conductor, Neil MacKenzie, a a graduate of Clare College, Cambridge, a founder member of The Sixteen and an ex-member of the BBC Singers.
