Celebrating 50 years of song with Bristol Male Voice Choir

May 29 2018

Bristol Male Voice Choir is celebrating its 50th Anniversary year with a gala concert featuring one of Wales' top-ranking male voice choirs, the famous Morriston Orpheus choir.

The choirs are joined by soloist Niall Allen (baritone), of Only Men Aloud, and the concert is compered by Bristol's own Emma Britton of BBC Radio Bristol. 

Choirmaster John Hollyman said: “The significance of this, our 50th year, is the way that we have achieved a balance of experience in the choir, the musical confidence and learning of the older members blending with the younger voices and performing standards of the members that have arrived in the last few years.

“Something like 300 choristers have sung with us since 1968 and the current choir is looking forward to many more recordings, performances for charity and representing our city on tour in the coming years.” 

The choir began in Filton almost 50 years ago with many of its original members employed locally at British Aerospace and Rolls Royce. It has grown in size and stature over the years, and now recruits Bristol-wide.  

To hear a feast of music, come and celebrate on this special occasion, at 7.30pm on Saturday 7 July, at All Saints church, Pembroke Road, Clifton, Bristol BS8 3ED. 

 Tickets are available via the choir website bristolmvc.org.uk or on the door.
