Moreton Hall’s Chamber Choir and Music Scholars have been named as the special guests to perform alongside multi-award winning male voice choir, Johns’ Boys, in an eagerly anticipated choral concert at The Holroyd Community Theatre on Saturday, 6th November. Despite both choirs remaining active through the pandemic via virtual concerts and online performances, both are looking forward to singing for a live audience once again.
Aled Philips, Musical Director of Johns’ Boys enthused: “This will be our first concert for over 18 months and all the lads are so looking forward to being back singing to a live audience. It will be a pleasure to sing alongside, and with, the wonderful Moreton Hall Chamber Choir in what is a super venue. An evening not to be missed!”
Johns’ Boys have made numerous TV appearances, most recently on BBC’s The Last Night of the Proms representing Wales with their rendition of O Gymru arranged by Aled. The choir were chosen from a national search to appear in the upcoming Netflix blockbuster drama Stay Close. Indeed, the choir have also appeared in many prestigious concert venues throughout Great Britain and regularly sing in the Principality Stadium for Welsh Rugby Union home international games.
Choir members stem from all over North Wales and North West England, with several choristers currently studying at the Royal Northern College of Music and the BIMM Institute, as well as other leading universities across the country. The singers have had much individual success winning major prizes in Eisteddfods and music festivals. The choir love creating music outside of the traditional male voice choir repertoire, exploring opera, pop music and the avant-garde, as well as premiering new music and performing arrangements written especially for them.
The choir are in great demand for concerts, TV appearances and have plans in place for future tours of Europe and Canada.
Helen Rayner, Director of Music: “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to perform with one of the UK’s most prestigious choirs here at Moreton. We look forward to a spectacular evening of music making!”
