One of the UK’s best-loved choirs will perform at St Peter’s Church, Ruthin, on Saturday evening March 23.
Bath Male Choir achieved national acclaim when they reached the finals of the BBC1 series ‘Last Choir Standing’. Since that time they have travelled around the world including a memorable tour to Japan. In November this year they will be visiting Boston, Massachusetts.
The founder of the choir is Grenville Jones who has a national reputation as a choir leader but also as the founder of the Golden-Oldies Charity. Grenville started ‘Goldies’, as it is more fondly known, back in 2007 and it now reaches across England and Wales with its popular fun daytime Sing & Smile sessions. Grenville is always quick to point out that Goldies is NOT a choir, it is simply a chance for older folk to have the opportunity to get out, have a good sing-song and make new friends.
Under the Goldies Cymru title the sessions are extending across Mid and South Wales and Grenville plans to bring Goldies Cymru to North Wales in the next two years.
As part of the day at Ruthin Grenville will lead a ‘come and sing’ workshop from 3.00pm-5.00pm. The accent will be on easy to sing melodies and the workshop choir will perform as part of the evening concert.
“The workshop is for everyone especially those who may have wondered just what it would be like to sing as part of a choir.”
Tickets are priced : Workshop and Concert £5 or Evening Concert only £8 and can be purchased from the Church office on 01824 707820 or 01824 705755.
