Royal Albert Hall
Alcester Choir’s remarkable year continues with prestigious London date
2014 was always going to be a special year for the Alcester Male Voice Choir, but according to its founder and Director of Music, Judith Land BEM its turning out to be a remarkable one.
It is the fortieth anniversary year for the choir and a year in which Judith received the British Empire Medal in the New Year’s honours list, this was followed in April by a sell out and highly successful concert in Symphony Hall, Birmingham and now the choir has been invited to sing at the Royal Albert Hall in a Festival of Male Voice Choirs organised by the London Welsh Male Voice Choir on the 18th October
Judith commented “we have sung in this festival before, but this year is of greater significance at it falls within our very special anniversary year. There will some 14 choirs on stage,(delete the majority) from Wales and ,England along with choirs from Norway, Sweden and Africa. It is expected that there will be over 800 voices onstage so it will be a tremendous sight and sound. The programme will be varied and includes popular songs, welsh hymns and spirituals and we are busy rehearsing for our first formal rehearsal in Swansea later on in June. I always hoped this year would be special but it is turning out to be quite remarkable, I am immensely proud of our our achievements and of course of the choir members who always work so hard and give their best in every concert.”
The Alcester Male Voice Choir performs regularly throughout the region and beyond and over the years have raised many thousands of pounds for groups, clubs, churches and charities of all kinds.
