Following its amazing Annual Concert last April and fresh from its successful tour of Cornwall in August, the Choir is pleased to announce its GALA CONCERT on Saturday 7th September at the Leisure Centre, Mill Lane Caldicot. Doors open at 6-30 pm and the concert starts at 7-00 pm.
In a change to our usual format of singing alongside another male voice choir, we are pleased to continue our tradition of supporting local talented musicians. This year we have invited The Rosso Ensemble as our special guests. A highly talented quintet of musicians, the Rosso Ensemble is made up of graduates of the Royal Welsh School of Music and Drama who have continued their training as post graduates either of the RWSMD or the Guildhall School of Music in London. All of the ensemble have played in the National Youth Orchestra of Wales or the National Wind Orchestra of Great Britain. Much in demand for concerts, corporate events and weddings, their speciality is in woodwind instruments and they will be playing popular classical and film music.
We are pleased and thrilled to welcome back our compère for the evening, Penny Roberts. Penny is a distinguished, award winning, national television journalist and presenter. As well as many notable interviews throughout the world, her career has included fronting ‘Wales Today’ for over five years and she has co-presented BBC’s ‘Crimewatch Roadshow’ series with Sophie Raworth and Rav Wilding. Penny has compèred for us on several occasions and it will be a delight to meet up with her again.
This is sure to be a very special evening which you really shouldn’t miss if you’re a lover of good music so please get your tickets from Alan Pearce on 01291 422005, from any chorister, through this web site contacts, at the Leisure Centre reception or at the door.
