Talgarth Male Choir performs Songs from the Black Mountains
The magical voices of Talgarth Male Choir will fill Hereford's St Peter's Church on Friday 29 April.
The Choir (shown in the photo below), who are performing a fundraiser for RNC, has been enchanting audiences for over 50 years in some of the UK's most famous venues as well as touring across Europe.
The concert has been organised by the College's Business and Administration students. Through co-ordinating events like this, students gain invaluable, real-life, practical experience which supports their learning and helps them to progress into the world of work.
Their tutor, Trefor Jones, has, himself, been singing with the
Talgarth Male Choir
since 2004 and says:
'Working with the students is an inspiration in itself. It's a privilege to have the opportunity to be a small part of their development with qualifications and independence and appreciate the barriers they overcome to be the most confident and valuable people they can be.'
Three RNC students will also be taking to the stage on the night with individual performances from Alexis Ganias, Gabrijela (Gabs) Klaric-Grubb and Emma Thompson (pictured in the photo below).
Alexis, aged 21, is from Harrow and studies Massage and Complementary Therapies. Alexis is a hugely talented songwriter who often combines a beautifully dulcet voice with the soft, sweet sound of the ukulele. Alexis regularly shares own compositions, alongside cover versions from favourite singers, on
Gabs, aged 22, is from Abergavenny and alongside being a talented musical theatre performer, she is studying to become a teaching assistant. No stranger to live audiences, she has been involved in many productions from 'Annie' to 'The Wizard of Oz'. She has also performed as part of a choir at Wembley Arena and at St David's Hall, Cardiff, in a dance production. Last summer, Gabs also entertained residents at Newstead House with some wartime favourites.
Emma, aged 18, is from South East London and is studying Audio Media Production. She is learning a lot from the course and is now starting to record vocally. She has previously performed her gentle vocal style at more intimate occasions but is looking forward to performing in front of a larger audience.
