Hart Male Voice Choir Gala Christmas Concert with Special Guest Compere and Singer Jonathan Veira
For more than 40 years Hart MVC has been entertaining audiences in Surrey and Hampshire and raising thousands of pounds for local charities. The annual Christmas concert at the Maltings is always popular. This year the programme will feature celebrated bass baritone singer and musician Jonathan Veira as both compere and performer. He will lead the choir through a special selection of Christmas songs with solos and of course audience participation.
Jonathan Veira is a Bass Baritone who graduated from London University and Trinity College of Music. He has been performing professionally on the operatic stage for more than 30 years, including at Covent Garden, Glyndebourne, English National Opera and many international venues.
Jonathan’s considerable vocal and comic talents have resulted in him singing many leading comic operatic roles. In contrast he also accompanies himself on piano and guitar to deliver performances of jazz and popular standard songs. In addition Jonathan broadcasts regularly on BBC radio and television including Songs of Praise.
As the special guest and compere at this year’s Hart Male Voice Choir’s Christmas concert Jonathan will introduce and perform in a lively programme of traditional Christmas favourites with special chorister solos and course some surprise pieces. This light-hearted evening will present everyone in the audience with a chance to sing with the choir in a really festive atmosphere of Christmas music and song.
