Star Singer to Perform with Police Choir

2nd November 2015

Critically acclaimed Welsh International Tenor, Timothy Richards, will be the special guest artiste for the Gwent Police Choir 46th Annual Concert. Tickets are now on sale for the event which will be held at St Julian's Comprehensive School in Newport on Saturday 14th November at 7pm.

Originally from Haverfordwest, Timothy is one of the leading lirico tenors in Europe and is famous for his smooth tenor sounds. He has sang in leading roles on some of the best stages of Europe and has appeared at the Royal Albert Hall, The Halle, the Welsh Proms in St David's Hall, Dresden Semperoper, Oper Leipzig, Berlin Komische Oper, Royal Danish Opera and many more. His TV appearances include 'The Three Tenors' Rossini Stabat Mater live from the National Eisteddfod.

Formed in 1969 by Sergeant William Bosustow, the main aim of the Gwent Police choir is to raise money for charity. The Police and Crime Commissioner for Gwent, Ian Johnston, is an enthusiastic supporter of the choir and will be among those attending the concert.

Encouraging people to come and see the concert, Mr Johnston, said: "The choir is one of the traditions that form part of the family value aspects of Gwent Police Force. They represent Gwent Police and engage with large parts of our community locally and nationally. They do a fantastic job as ambassadors for the force externally and it's a fine tradition that we are really proud of here."

Tickets for the concert are £10 each and can be purchased by contacting Phil Humphreys on 01633 664 163 or Stuart Ashdown on 01633 272 883.
