about this event


London Welsh Rugby Club has a long and illustrious history
in the sport of Rugby Union both in Wales and England. The club choir – is
thrilled to have been invited to what should be a wonderful evening in
Cranleigh.

Since its formation, under the presidency of Wales and
British and Irish Lions legend John Dawes OBE, the choir has brought its unique
sound to sell out audiences across the UK, Europe and New Zealand. They have
strong ties to their Welsh roots at Old Deer Park, the home of London Welsh
RFC, and the Welsh exile community in London and the home counties.High-profile
appearances have been on national radio and television and their defining
moment was performing at the 2012 London Olympics in front of a worldwide
audience of more than one billion.

Welsh Rugby and song go hand in hand and the choir’s
performances reflect this. Concert programmes include songs from the Male Voice
Choir repertoire, shows and popular classics. Formed in 2003 the choir has gone
from strength to strength, with its 40-strong members kept firmly in line by
musical director Michael Wyn Jones. Jones. Michael has been a member of the BBC
Symphony Chorus and the 1998 Choir of the Year Exmoor Singers, and is
responsible for the development of the choir few could have predicted. The
choir repertoire has been expanded, a new style of singing introduced, and
innovations developed wherever possible. The result is a choir singing with an
infectious enthusiasm.
