The Aberhonddu and District Male Choir hosted a very different concert this year – a virtual one! The Virtual Concert ‘Lockdown Melodies’ was streamed live on Facebook on Wednesday 29th July. As a Choir we have missed singing and performing together but with Zoom at our disposal we are still able to meet on a Friday night. During these difficult and uncertain times, the Choir wanted to connect with the audience to entertain along with supporting two fantastic charities – Brecon Foodbank and Ty Hafan. With limited fundraising events many charities are struggling to raise the essential money needed, but by embracing modern technology we have been able to bring a concert to the comfort of your home to help with the fundraising efforts. The concert featured artists and guests including the Archbishop of Wales, the Choir President Llio Evans, Sorela and Colonel Nick Lock.
Lyn Bugler, Trustee of Brecon Foodbank, stated 'A huge thank you to the choir for choosing Brecon Foodbank as their local charity to support. We have been truly humbled by everyone in our community of offers of help, food and fundraising. Our charity is not possible, without us all working together. We wish the choir every success for the future.'
Marc Williams, Choir Secretary, 'The concert is still available to watch for free on the Choir’s Facebook page or on YouTube, and a donation to the two worthy causes would be very much appreciated. We hope that you enjoy the concert, and we look forward to performing again soon'.
