Choristers to raise roof at Twickenham again
6:00pm Monday 21st October 2013 in News
THE award-winning Wessex Male Choir, based in Swindon, is heading for Twickenham again this year.
On Saturday, November 2 the choir will sing at the England vs Australia All Stars Rugby Union match to celebrate the 10th anniversary of England’s World Cup victory in 2003. The match will be broadcast on Sky.
The choir will entertain the crowd before kick-off and at half time. Just before kick-off they will lead the crowd in the national anthems. Ken Bull, chairman of the choir, said: “This is an honour not just for Wessex but also for Swindon. “A crowd of up to 80,000 could be expected but the choir is used to this as they have previously sung at Twickenham and Wembley Stadium.”
If you want to see and hear the choir for yourselves then you can catch them at Holy Rood Church on Friday, December 13, when they will be giving their Christmas concert. Tickets are available at www.wessexmalechoir.co.uk.
If any men like the idea of singing with the choir they can call Ken on 01793 772384. The choir meets at the church at Abbey Meads Village Centre every Tuesday at 7.30pm for rehearsals, and afterwards in the pub next door for a beer and chips.
