THE massed voices of two choirs, including one that has sung at the Sydney Opera House and the Royal Albert Hall, will be something to be be heard at the Riverbank House Hotel in Wexford this coming Sunday, May 17.
The Australian Welsh Male Voice Choir will join Wexford Male Voice Choir in the fundraising concert for the town's Able-Disabled Club, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary.
Tony Murphy, from the club, said the Australian choir, which will be on a tour of England, Ireland and Wales, is due to stay at the Maldron Hotel for two nights in mid-May and offered to perform a charity concert in the town, following an appearance at the Royal Albert Hall '1,000 Voice Festival' in London.
Tickets for the Wexford concert, which starts at 7.30 p.m. are only €10 and available at the Riverbank House Hotel or from any committee member.
The repertoire will include something for everyone, with a wide variety of music from much-loved traditional Welsh songs to toe-tapping popular music.
