2015 marks the 60th Anniversary of Saddleworth Male Voice Choir and as part of their year of celebration the choir will perform at Saddleworth Festival of Arts with Welsh tenor soloist Wynne Evans who is well-known from the 'Go Compare' advertising campaign on television.
The concert will have a continental feel with music from all over Europe and will particularly feature the songs of Mario Lanza and his home country, Italy.
Saddleworth Male Voice Choir was formed in 1955 and its membership is drawn from around the Greater Manchester area, in particular Saddleworth. The Choir has several recordings, radio broadcasts and television appearances to its credit and each year undertakes a busy schedule of concerts. Its repertoire extends to over 300 pieces including both sacred and secular music. The Choir has also been very successful in both local and national music festivals and undertakes exchange visits and foreign tours most recently to Italy and Spain.More about the artist »
