Night of song with male voice choir
THE harmonic sounds of a leading male voice choir are set to ring out around St Cuthbert’s Church in Wells in March.
Wells Lions Club is staging another of its popular charity concerts, this time featuring Bristol Male Voice Choir, one of the best in the West Country. It will take place on Saturday, March 17, starting at 7.30pm. All previous Lions concerts in Wells have sold out, raising thousands for local charities.
The proceeds from this concert will be presented to Children’s Hospice South West which provides care for children with life-limiting conditions, and serves the Wells area.
The concert is being jointly sponsored by The Square, a children’s soft play area in Wells, and Bowley’s Garage, Wells.
Bristol Male Voice Choir is celebrating its Golden Jubilee this year, and this will be the choir’s first major performance of the year. The two-hour concert will feature more than a dozen classic male voice choir songs, performed by more than 40 stirring voices.
Supporting the choir will be Wookey’s violin prodigy, 13-year-old Poppy McGhee, who has received a £200 sponsorship grant from Wells Lions towards her musical training.
There will be a full bar available before and during the concert, and a raffle with a first prize worth £350 donated by The Swan Hotel, Wells – a night for two people in the hotel’s Cathedral Suite.
Tickets are on sale now, priced at £15 for the centre pews and £10 for a side seat. Telephone 01458 210926, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
