The Rotary Club of Montrose will present a concert by the Dolgellau Male Voice Choir from Wales on Tuesday, October 25 at 7 p.m. in the Montrose High School Auditorium.
Led by dynamic conductor Geunor Roberts, the choir sings both a cappella and accompanied by pianist Eryl Williams. Mezzo-soprano Sioned Wyn will be the featured soloist.
Ms. Wyn first acquired a taste for performing at a young age while attending Sunday School and chapel. At age 17, she won first prize in the girls solo competition in the National Young Farmers Eisteddfod, a singing competition. In college, she studied theater, music and media and performed with the college theater group. She also made a number of television appearances. Since her late teenage years she has appeared as a soloist with a number of choirs. She is an administrator and part-time lecturer in the Performing Arts at the Sixth Form College in Dolgellau.
The present choir was formed in 1986, following in the footsteps of a predecessor male choir that existed in the town from the middle of the 20th century to the 1970s. Its original intention was to form a small singing party which would entertain at social functions, but increasing interest prompted the formation of a choir. The choirs website notes that "members enjoy singing together and traveling to entertain audiences when the opportunity arises. Good-natured fun and community spirit are hallmarks of the choir."
The choir has performed in England, Scotland, Ireland and Brittany. Its repertoire includes popular Welsh songs and folk tunes, show songs in English and Welsh, hymns and classical pieces. When visiting another country, the choir always attempts to perform a song from that country, in its native tongue.
After the performance, a "Te Bach," or Welsh Tea, will give the audience a chance to meet the performers.
Tickets in advance are available by calling (570) 289-4226. Tickets will be available at the door.
