World famous opera singer Lesley Garrett is to perform at The Baths Hall, Scunthorpe next year. ‘Men of Steel’ – A Massed Male Voice Choir with Lesley Garrett will take place on Saturday, 21 May 2016. Tickets for the event go on sale this Friday morning.
The event has been organised by Scunthorpe Male Voice Choir, who will be performing with as many as 200 people on the night.
A spokesman for the choir said: “25 years ago the Scunthorpe Male Voice Choir had an idea to pull together Male Voice Choirs from all the major steel making areas of Northern England to sing in a 200 men massed concert entitled ‘Men of Steel’. This was held at The Baths Hall, our Master of Ceremonies for the evening was John Thirlwell and included local soloists. “In 2016 we are remembering that concert; our Musical Director for the evening is Daniel Fields, our Master of Ceremonies will again be John Thirlwell and the soloist will be our very special guest star Lesley Garrett.” This event has been supported by North Lincolnshire Council’s Community Development Fund.
