    Great Hall, Bay Campus, Swansea University Swansea SA1 8EN
    United Kingdom

    This event celebrates the 37th Annual Patrons Concert of the Dunvant Male Choir and for the first time utilises the impressive Great Hall of the new Swansea University Bay Campus.

    We have two international guest artists for the concert –

    Mary Elizabeth Williams (soprano), originally from Philadelphia, USA and arrives in Wales via Paris, Kentucky, Indianapolis, Seattle and New Orleans.

    The bass-baritone Miklos Sebestyen was born in Budapest, Hungary, and studied music in Munich. He comes to Wales via Vienna, Berlin, Leipzig, Nurnberg, New York and in 2014 he sang the title role in Mose in Egitto with WNO and Carlo Rizzi in Cardiff. He has also established himself as a concert singer.

    In August both artistes commence rehersals for Welsh National Opera's new production of Macbeth as part of their Autumn Series.

    They will be accompanied by one of WNO's repetiteurs, David Doidge and the compere will be TV newscaster Nicola Heywood-Thomas.

    Warning, the Great Hall has a seating capacity of 700 and with 400+ choir patrons, remaining tickets will be rarer than a season ticket for the Swans!
