A one-off concert to support the restoration work taking place at Stourhead takes place on Saturday 6th September at Salisbury City Hall when the London Welsh Male Voice Choir will perform their magical blend of traditional and ‘pop’ songs.
The London Welsh Male Voice Choir has a membership of over 100 choristers and is famed for its innovative approach. Since its formation in 1902 it has been delighting audiences around the world and supporting many charities.
Esther Stewart from the National Trust said: “The concert promises to be truly memorable. Not only can you share the evening with this celebrated choir but also help us to raise funds to protect Stourhead for future generations to enjoy.
“The choir sings without a musical score, so all hymns, arias and songs are learned by heart. They sing for the sheer pleasure and fun of it.”
Joining the choir on the evening will be acclaimed soloist Jo Addison, who grew up in Salisbury and is classically trained. She currently sings with the City of Bath Bach Choir, regularly performing in Bath Abbey and The Pump Rooms.
The London Welsh Male Voice Choir has performed at concert halls and cathedrals worldwide, including the Royal Albert Hall and Westminster Cathedral. From backing pop band Take That at Earls Court to thrilling crowds at Twickenham and Lords Cricket Ground, their performances are unique. In 2012 the choir sang the Olympic Hymn at the Olympics Closing Ceremony, a performance that reached over a billion people.
