Bath’s popular Male Choir will be special guests at the annual BBC Radio Bristol Carol Service this year.
This brings to a close another busy year with a 90 strong Choir who hit the national headlines when they reached the finals of the BBC’s ‘Last Choir Standing’ series. The TV show has since been screened across the world prompting emails to the Choir’s founder conductor Grenville Jones from as far a field as Africa, New Zealand and Australia.
One Australian fan even made a special visit to Bath in October so he could attend a Choir rehearsal and hear the ‘Boys from Bath’ first hand.
Other concert performances this year have included a highly successful visit to France, a memorable concert in Bath Abbey with the famous RAF Central Band raising £10,000 for Help for Heroes and the recent annual concert in The Forum, Bath, with Lee Mead.
The Radio Bristol Carol Service always attracts a capacity audience and next Wednesday (December 14th) over a thousand people will head for the Clifton College Chapel where the Christmas concert will be recorded.
Grenville Jones has been asked to lead the audience carols and Bath Male Choir will perform two seasonal items. The readings are taken by Radio Bristol Presenters and special guests.
Says Grenville :
“It is a great pleasure to be asked to sing for Radio Bristol.
“they have always been great supporters of our Choir and we are looking forward hugely to the concert which will be broadcast on Christmas Day.”
