    Description: London Welsh Rugby Club has a long and illustrious history
    in the sport of Rugby Union both in Wales and England. The club choir – is
    thrilled to have been invited to what should be a wonderful evening in
    Cranleigh.


    Since its formation, under the presidency of Wales and
    British and Irish Lions legend John Dawes OBE, the choir has brought its unique
    sound to sell out audiences across the UK, Europe and New Zealand. They have
    strong ties to their Welsh roots at Old Deer Park, the home of London Welsh
    RFC, and the Welsh exile community in London and the home counties.High-profile
    appearances have been on national radio and television and their defining
    moment was performing at the 2012 London Olympics in front of a worldwide
    audience of more than one billion.

    Welsh Rugby and song go hand in hand and the choir’s
    performances reflect this. Concert programmes include songs from the Male Voice
    Choir repertoire, shows and popular classics. Formed in 2003 the choir has gone
    from strength to strength, with its 40-strong members kept firmly in line by
    musical director Michael Wyn Jones. Jones. Michael has been a member of the BBC
    Symphony Chorus and the 1998 Choir of the Year Exmoor Singers, and is
    responsible for the development of the choir few could have predicted. The
    choir repertoire has been expanded, a new style of singing introduced, and
    innovations developed wherever possible. The result is a choir singing with an
    infectious enthusiasm.
