This time last year (November 2019) members of the City of Bath Male Choir were in Boston, a memorable singing tour to packed audiences.
As with all other choirs world-wide live singing for Bath’s celebrated Male Choir came to an abrupt Lockdown stop in March. The choir have been rehearsing through Zoom in recent months and are delighted to be performing again as part of an online carol service which will be broadcast on Sunday December 20.
Grenville Jones is Founder of Bath Male Choir, he said;
“It’s great for the guys to be singing again and they have been enjoying ‘attending’ their Zoom rehearsals every Tuesday. These have been taken by my youngest son Laurie and he has prepared members of Bath Male Choir for the broadcast performance for the online Christmas Show.
“The choir will sing a beautiful piece ‘There is Faint Music’. This, incidentally, was a piece that the choir heard first on their concert tour to Japan six years ago.”
Members of Bath Male Choir come from across the area. Laurie Jones (40) is head of music at a Bristol Secondary School and also conducts the Malmesbury Community Choir.
The online Christmas Concert is produced by Bath-based Matt Finch and will include performances by a number of choirs from across England.
