Wessex Male Choir will be performing at a charity concert in Royal Wootton Bassett with proceeds going to Bible Society.
The concert will take place on Saturday 29 October with doors opening at 7.30pm.
The Swindon-based choir, which is celebrating its tenth anniversary, was crowned Male Voice Choir champions at the prestigious International Music Eisteddfod in Llangollen earlier this year. This is a fantastic achievement, winning the title against competition from choirs from around the world to take the highly-acclaimed title.
Musical director, Robert Elliott who is from Wotton Bassett said, ‘It is great to be performing close to home in this our tenth anniversary year and following our success at Llangollen.’
Tickets costing £7.50 are on sale from local churches in Wootton Bassett, The Croft Shop (behind St Barts Church), Brian Taylor Music in Wootton Bassett or from the choir by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
The concert is in aid of Bible Society as it celebrates the 400th anniversary of the King James Bible, and will help its fundraising for Bible Society work in Ethiopia. Bible Society of Ethiopia distributes Bibles, provides Proclaimer audio Bibles in orphanages, churches and prisons and continues vital translation work so people can encounter the life-changing message of the Bible.
