Wessex Male Choir’s annual International Choral Concert on Saturday 16 June at STEAM in Swindon is already looking likely to be a sell-out!
The choir, who are the current International Male Choir Champions after their win at the Llangollen International Eisteddfod last year, host this concert each year and invite top choirs from other countries to join them. This year we welcome the fantastic, 70-strong, University of Kentucky Women’s Choir.
The concert will take place in the impressive Event Hall at Swindon’s STEAM Heritage Centre.
Musical Director, Robert Elliott said, ‘We are thrilled to have the University of Kentucky Women’s Choir join us this year as part of their UK Tour in June. The International Concert is the highlight in our calendar and we look forward to entertaining audience members new and old and also returning to STEAM again after last year’s sell-out event.”
“Wessex Male Choir will be singing some great new songs, including ‘New York, New York’, Robbie Williams’ ‘Angels’, World in Union and a humorous tribute entitled – ‘Wessex sing the Classics’.
“We will also be honouring the Queen’s Jubilee and the forthcoming Olympics, with the choirs and audience finishing up with the singing of ‘Jerusalem’ – what a way to finish!" added Rob.
