Choral society’s new man at helm

A choral society has appointed a new musical director ahead of its 50th anniversary next year.

Peter Coulson is now leading Tynemouth Choral Society, and rehearsals are well under way for his first concert of the year on Friday, March 12.

John Stainer’s The Crucifixion will be the main work featured at the show, at St Augustin’s Church in North Shields.

Tickets, priced £10, are available on the door or at wegottickets.com
