Choir gets whole place rock­ing in de­but con­cert

Llanelli Star - - NEWS -

LLANELLI’S brand new choir, Val­ley Rock Voices, per­formed their de­but con­cert at The Stradey Park Hotel to a sell-out au­di­ence of nearly 400 peo­ple.

Spe­cial guests in­cluded The Hat and the Fid­dle Band, who rocked the house with their lively mix of folk and coun­try tunes, and the sub­lime Mum­bles A Cap­pella Choir.

Val­ley Rock Voices had the whole place rock­ing with a heady mix of pop and rock songs that had been ar­ranged es­pe­cially for choir and their own live rock band by mu­si­cal direc­tor Cerys LlewellynB­e­van.

The au­di­ence was treated to mu­sic by Cold­play, The Bee Gees, and Lady Gaga and many more foot-tap­ping favourites. It didn’t take long to get the au­di­ence to their feet as they danced and sang along with 80 singers all dressed glam­orously in red.

The choir was treated to a spon­ta­neous stand­ing ova­tion at the end of their fi­nal song as the whole room leapt to their feet to ap­plaud what was a truly spec­tac­u­lar evening.

The choir pre­sented Han­nah Beadsworth, from the char­ity MiHC, Mu­sic in Hos­pi­tals and Care, with a cheque for more than £2,000 that mem­bers had raised from singing in St David’s Shop­ping Cen­tre, Cardiff, at Christ­mas.

Val­ley Rock Voices re­hearse at The Stradey Park Hotel ev­ery Tues­day from 7pm to 9pm dur­ing term time.

They are tak­ing on new mem­bers and there is no au­di­tion.
