Two concert dates for readers diaries! Saturday June 1 and Saturday June 29 – both concerts at St Michael’s Church in the centre of Bath featuring choirs led by Bath’s Mr Music, Grenville Jones .
Bath’s celebrated Male Choir will be holding their annual concert on Saturday June 1. The choir hit the headlines when they appeared on the BBC’s ‘Last Choir Standing’ series, reaching the final stages. Since that time they have sung around the UK, toured Japan, sung at the Last Post Ceremony at Menin Gate on Remembrance Day. Later this year, will set out for Boston, Massachusetts.
At their June concert they welcome a visiting choir from America who are touring England called Encore Chorale.
Grenville enjoys the reputation of being one of the UK’s best-known choir leaders. He was one of the ‘100’ judges on the recent popular BBC1 Saturday night TV series, ‘All Together Now’.
