Welsh Choir sings for Willow Foundation at St Albans Abbey
ONE of the largest choirs in Wales will be performing at St Albans Abbey next Saturday, June 5, in aid of the Willow Foundation.
The 90 voices of the South Wales Male Choir are returning to the Abbey for the second year following the previous sell-out concert.
Led by distinguished conductor Elaine Robins, accompanied by Sian Davies, the choir sings tradition and classical scores in both English and Welsh and has travelled the world performing in such prestigious venues as the Sydney Opera House and London’s Royal Albert Hall.
Later this year the choir will travel to the Eastern provinces of Canada for a concert tour.
St Albans group, the Quorum Singers, which was originally formed by members of the Dagnall Street Baptist Church, will also perform on the night.

Bob said: “This promises to be a magical evening of entertainment from a world class choir who have generously chosen to support the Willow Foundation once again, helping us make a real difference to people living with life-threatening conditions.”
