This event has been organised by the Mendip, Glastonbury, Taunton Deane, and the Avon and Somerset Constabulary Male Voice Choirs as a fund raising massed choir concert to support two charities local  to the area, the Children's Hospice South West, and the Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance.

The programme of music will feature many of the stronger and popular individual pieces loved by supporters of male voice choirs, including sacred and secular music, interspersed with two, as yet undeclared soloists to provide a break for the choirs.

Approximately 180 male voices will be on stage in the Cathedral on the evening of the 27th October, having practiced and perfected a choice of music selected by the four Directors of the different choirs.

The compere will be Robin Hobbs, the popular host of many male voice choir concerts over the years, who will no doubt keep the audience entertained, whilst he regails them with various anecdotes between the concert pieces. The evening promises something of everything for the audience, and with the projected size of the massed choir should produce a unique and wonderful sound.
