BAKEWELL: Parish church to host concert by Rhos Orpheus Male Choir



The stirring sound of Wales returns to Bakewell in May, when the internationally acclaimed Rhos Orpheus Male Choir returns to Derbyshire to perform in a concert in Bakewell Parish Church.

The choir, described as one of the finest male choirs in Wales, has performed in Europe, the USA, Canada, China and Israel. In 2012 they sang at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall and in December were featured on a Christmas CD which reached number 9 in the Classic FM Album Chart.

Richard Huxley, concert secretary for the choir said: “We are delighted to have been invited once again to sing in Bakewell following a very successful concert in 2010. We will be singing a number of items from our repertoire which will include a generous helping of Welsh favourites and also songs from the shows”.

The concert, which will be on Saturday, May 4, at 7.30pm, will also feature the choir’s popular tenor Alf Gladman and students from Lady Manners School.

Tickets at £10 from the Bakewell Bookshop or on the door.
