My Son My Brother
A very special concert will take place in Bath Abbey on Friday November 3 at 7.30pm. Called, “My Son - My Brother”, it will celebrate the life of Kieron Jones who passed away on July 11th just two days before his 47th birthday.
Kieron was the middle son of Bath’s music man, Grenville Jones, and Kieron’s brothers are Daniel and Laurie. Kieron lived in Dulwich in London with his wife Marianna, son Artur 14 and Melodie aged 9. He was diagnosed with bowel cancer three years ago and passed away at St Christopher’s Hospice, Sydenham. The concert will support cancer charities.
“All the ticket income and a retiring collection will go to charity and the concert will feature both words and music to celebrate the life and talents of my special son.”
Kieron was born in Farmborough and became head boy at Beechen Cliff School. He studied at Swansea University and followed a career in drama and music. In his later years he worked with many senior schools across Denmark with his hugely popular ‘Shakespeare Works’ workshops.
The concert on November 3 will feature music from many of the groups linked to the family including the Worship Group from St Phillip and St James’ led by Daniel Jones. Special guests include the brilliant classical pianist, Nurry Lee, violinist Lizz Lipscombe and a celebration choir of 150 voices comprising singers from both Grenville and Laurie’s mixed-voice choirs. The much-travelled City of Bath Male Choir, founded by Grenville 15 years ago, will also perform.
Tickets are priced £18 from gac.ticketlight.co.uk
