TV choirmaster will be in tune with Warminster singers
Choir leader and musician Grenville Jones will be holding a come and sing workshop at the United Church in Warminster on March 16.
Mr Jones has featured on TV and radio world-wide, reaching the finals of the BBC Last Choir Standing series with one of his choirs, the renowned Bath Male Choir.
He has also worked with fellow choirmaster and broadcaster Gareth Malone on BBC Children in Need and conducted his choirs on stage with singers such as Aled Jones and Katherine Jenkins.
The Warminster workshop will run from 3pm-5.30pm at the United Church in George Street, before the singers will perform alongside Mr Jones’ Bath Welcome Community choir at an evening concert at Warminster Civic Centre.
Heather Morgan, Mr Jones’ sister and a retired United Reformed Church Minister, said: “It is the first time we have had something like this at the church, but my brother has run many workshops before.
“I have been nagging him about doing one in Warminster for a while, so it’s good he is finally coming and it should be a fun and relaxed day for those who fancy getting involved and having a sing.”
Last year, Mr Jones was presented to the Queen at the Jubilee Buckingham Palace garden party following the work of his Golden Oldies charity, which he founded in 2007.
Mr Jones said: “You do not have to have singing experience to take part in the workshop. The day in Warminster is for everyone, so if you enjoy and good sing in the car or the shower then do come along and have a fun time.”
The cost of the workshop and concert is £6 for adults and £4 for juniors under 15. For those attending the concert the prices are the same.
