Monmouth Male Voice Choir put on a special performance for the guests of Lakani World Tours at the Rolls of Monmouth Golf Club, Hendre recently. The audience, comprising mainly American visitors, were given a virtuoso performance from the choir. Among the pieces performed were a few specially requested by the visitors including: Gwahoddiad, Myfanwy, Calon Lân and Speed Your Journey.
In addition the choir sang The Book of Love, Anfonaf Angel, Tell My Father and American Trilogy before ending with a thunderous rendition of Gwinllan a Roddwyd I’m Gofal. The choir, under Musical Director Mike Steer, continue to wow audiences wherever they perform and, after a standing ovation, Incy Britton-Foster of Lakani World Tours said “I want to thank the choir for putting on a fantastic performance. It was incredible”.
The choir were delighted to be able to support Monmouth Town Band at the Savoy for the band’s 50th Anniversary Concert. The evening was a huge success and the appreciative audience were treated to a wide variation of music in this wonderful old theatre. All choristers are now studiously preparing for their second visit to the Royal Albert Hall on 13th October to perform at The London Welsh Male Voice Choir’s 26th Festival of Male Choirs. Then on 2nd November they will be joining forces again with Monmouth Town Band for the Choir’s own Annual Gala Concert to be held at the Blake Theatre.
The concert will be introduced by Eddie Butler and, fittingly, this year, proceeds will be shared with the Royal British Legion. (Tickets are available from Blake Theatre). This busy year will close with Christmas concerts in Dinas Powys (1st December) followed by a first visit to Abergavenny Borough Theatre (14th December) for a much awaited concert withthe Borough Band.
If you would like to be part of this young, vibrant choir contact the Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org or, better still, join a rehearsal each Thursday 7.30pm at Monmouth Conservative Club – all will be made most welcome.
