In Memory of Tony
Frome’s Merlin Theatre will host a very special concert on Sunday evening September 24.
Featuring the celebrated Bath Male Choir the concert will support the British Heart Foundation and a 2017 fundraising drive in memory of former choir member, Tony Pickett.
Tony, who lived in Frome, had sung in the choir since it started 10 years ago. Choir members were devastated when Tony died after a heart attack whilst out cycling last July.
After a discussion with Tony’s partner Ginette, BHF was chosen to benefit from a number of fundraising concerts and special events, including a new CD from the choir called ‘Reflections’. In March Simon Kale from the tenor section of the choir, and a friend of Tony’s, ran the London Marathon raising over £5,000.
The Merlin Theatre concert will also feature the popular Courage Choir from Bradford on Avon and it promises to be a very special evening.
Tickets are on sale from the Merlin Theatre Box Office priced £15 telephone 01373 465949.
Looking ahead, on October 14 Bath Male Choir will continue their fundraising when they welcome the famous Morriston Orpheus Choir to a concert at St Swithin’s Church, Bath. Ticket line 01225 463362.
