THE Blackstone Ipswich Cambrian Choir's Coro Concorde performers will aim to bring a bit of warmth into your winter with their Christmas in July-themed, Songs From The Hearth concert this month.

The singing group, which consists mostly of retirees and shift workers, has been rehearsing a set-list of about 15 heart-warming classics since Easter.

Choir member Dale Stevens said the concert was all about celebrating the infamous Ipswich cold.

"They are the sort of songs you might sing over a cup of coffee or a wine near the fireplace," Mr Stevens said.

Audience members will be encouraged to join in with the spirit of the occasion, as the choir works its way through a few Christmas carols, in addition to classics like Moon River, Field of Gold and Love Will Keep Us Together.

Leading the sing-along, on the piano, will be Cambrian Choir musical director Sandra Milliken.

The concert also features a tummy-warming morning tea.

Songs From The Hearth will be performed at the Cambrian Centre, 10 South Station Rd, Booval, on July 23, starting 9.30am.

Entry is $10.
