Sir Willard White is Choir's guest for 2014!
The Choir are delighted to announce that Sir Willard White will be their guest in Huddersfield Town Hall on Saturday October 11th 2014.
Sir Willard, famed for his enormous rich voice and charismatic stage presence, appeared with the Choir in the Town Hall in 2006.
His illustrious career has taken him to the most prestigious opera houses and concert halls throughout the world, collaborating with conductors, directors and orchestras of the highest calibre.
Recently, Sir Willard has appeared as the High Priest in Alceste at the Teatro Real in Madrid and as Klingsor in Parsifal at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. Both roles received huge critical aclaim.
Not only is he one of the world's best loved opera stars, Sir Willard has also starred as Othello alongside Sir Ian McKellen (as Iago) in the Royal Shakespeare Theatre's production of Othello.
Naturally, the Choir are overwelmed that they will join him on the stage of Huddersfield Town Hall!

'Men in Green Jackets' Presentation
What you need is "Men in Green Jackets" - a light-hearted and entertaining audio-visual presentation about New Mill Male Voice Choir - its history, and the sound it makes.
The presentation lasts about an hour (plus or minus 15 minutes as required). There is no charge for the presentation but a donation to charity is welcomed - we may possibly have to ask for travelling expenses for longer distances outside the Huddersfield area.
All you need is a minimum number of 15 in the audience, and a readiness to enjoy a good story and some good music.
Please note that we are not usually available on Tuesday evenings as that is choir rehearsal time.
