Newport (Salop) & District Male Voice Choir – Welsh Night Concert, 27 February 2015

Newport Choir Supports Mayors Charity with a Welsh Flavour.

Our 2015 schedule of concerts got off to a fine start on Friday 27 February , with our annual Welsh Night at Cosy Hall, Newport TF10. The event proved as popular as ever, with a large audience in attendance.

The choir gave an enthusiastic performance of a programme with a distinct Welsh flavour, compered by Glyn Thomas and under the direction of Vivian Redfern. Our soloist for this occasion was Penny-Robin Riddering, who performed two sets of short pieces on her harp, to the great enjoyment of all present.
