Next Choir Tour Announced – it’s Nashville, USA
The celebrated Bath Male Choir hit the headlines a few years ago when they reached the finals of the popular Saturday night BBC series ‘Last Choir Standing’.
Since that time the choir have grown in size and taken part in a number of tours around the World. They have sung at concerts across the UK and Europe, took part in a hugely successful visit to Japan in 2014, with their most recent tour being to Boston, USA, in 2019.
Now back to singing after the Covid Lockdown, founder conductor Grenville Jones has announced that plans are taking place for another tour at the end of 2022.
“Tours are an important part of choir life and we have had some fantastic times in the past and I am now starting to plan a visit to Nashville around October of next year, 2022.
“After getting in touch with Mayor John Cooper in Nashville we have received a warm invitation to visit next year. Nashville, of course, is THE ‘music city’ and home to The Grand Old Opry, the Country Music Hall of Fame and many other popular tourist venues with music links,” said Grenville.
Rehearsals re-commenced two weeks ago at Beechen Cliff Methodist Church in Bear Flat, Bath, where new potential members are always welcome on a Tuesday evening from 7.30pm onwards.
“Singing in a choir is one of the most rewarding hobbies and if you are guy who enjoys singing along in the car or in the shower then, just perhaps, Bath Male Choir might be just what you are looking for. The majority of singers in our choir had not previously sung in an organised group before and with an ever-growing list of invitations to concerts, we are actively recruiting new singers in all parts and all voices, whether low or high!”
Full details of the trip to Nashville will be announced in January. Meanwhile if you are a man who loves to sing then Grenville and his son Laurie, with whom he shares the conducting, look forward to meeting you on a Tuesday evening.
