New Mill Male Voice Choir is set to host Internationally-renowned musician Sir Willard White at Huddersfield Town Hall on Saturday October 8.

Sir Willard, one of his generation’s best-loved bass/baritone singers, has appeared on stage at some of the most prestigious opera houses in the world.

His legendary stage presence has captivated audiences for over 40 years and New Mill Male Voice Choir is delighted to welcome him back to Huddersfield Town Hall. The concert will be the third time Sir Willard has appeared with them, the last being in 2014.

Earlier this year Sir Willard appeared in Opera North’s production of Rigoletto at Leeds Grand Theatre, a performance that prompted the Guardian to write: “Pity anyone who appears on the same platform as baritone Willard White. He has so much presence he can eclipse an entire symphony orchestra and chorus with a mere twitch of an eyebrow.”

Sir Willard’s repertoire will include favourites from Schubert, Mozart, Copland and Roger’s and Hammerstein.

The concert will support Ruddi’s Retreat, a charity based in Slaithwaite which provides holiday accommodation on the East Coast of Yorkshire for families experiencing traumatic and distressing life events.
