A FORMER Woodbridge chorister is returning to her roots to perform with a top Cambridge choir.

Anna Power from Waldringfield used to perform with St. Mary's choir but is now a student at Christ's College at Cambridge University.

She will step back in time when the choir of Christ's College visits St. Mary's Church as part of a series of Advent concerts around the east of England.

The 19-year-old former Northgate sixth form and Kesgrave High School pupil in her first term at Cambridge studying English Literature and is having the time of her life.

She said: "It will be very strange singing at the church with a different choir but I am looking forward to it."

It is the first time that the choir has visited the church and they will be singing Advent and Christmas music as well as selections from their repertoire of English and European sacred music.

The choir has performed all over the world and is widely recognised as one of the finest mixed-voice university choirs. This latest tour is in preparation for a European Tour next summer. The choir has recorded a number of CDs and broadcasted live from the college chapel on Radio 4's Morning Worship.

The choir will perform at St.Mary's Church on Saturday at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £5 or £3 for concessions and can be bought on the door or in advance by calling 01394 383000 or 01394 388820.
