A CONDUCTOR will celebrate 60 years with the baton at a special concert this weekend.

Chris Green, from the Anglia Singers, will once again take the lead at Our Lady Queen of Peace, in Braintree, on Sunday at 4pm.

Mr Green formed the Anglia Singers in 1991 for Anglia Ruskin University while working as a professor there and the choir has visited Braintree at least once per year since.

As a youngster he formed Trianon Music Group in Ipswich and some of the group will be joining the Singers this weekend for two choral classics.

Tickets for the concert are on sale from Joscelyne Chase, in Braintree and on the door for £8. Under 16s go free.
