Cornwall‘s famous Four Lanes choir will also be performing with the County Sligo Golf Club Male Voice Choir from Eire.
Paul Reed, Senior Partner at Robinson Reed Layton is pleased to be sponsoring the concert that features Boni Pueri.
“The CIMVCF brings choirs to the county that we rarely get the opportunity to enjoy. Boni Pueri has performed all over the world and we are privileged to have them sing here in Redruth. Cornwall is very proud of this Festival and Robinson Reed Layton is proud to play a part in ensuring that it goes from strength to strength.”
Chairman of CIMVCF David Peters is delighted that Robinson Reed Layton is sponsoring the Festival:
“Singing plays an important role in Cornwall for people from all walks of life so it’s wonderful that the the County hosts, what we believe to be, Europe’s largest male voice festival. It costs £120,000 to stage and so couldn’t go ahead without sponsors, especially in these difficult economic times. Thanks to local businesses like Robinson Reed Layton, this fifth biennial Festival looks to be better than ever.”Go to our news page
