February 8 – 13 1993
Treorchy Male Choir’s second visit to the United States of America was due to the very successful World Choir organisation that held a concert in Cardiff Arms Park with 8,000 choristers and a star-studded line-up. When the director, Wyndham Lewis, decided to hold a similar concert in Atlanta, Georgia, he wanted a choir to spend a few days in the American city as a “scouting” party to attract the attention and support of musical organisations over the other side of the Atlantic. It was with delight that Treorchy was chosen to fulfil this role and therefore were flown to Atlanta for an all-expenses paid five-day tour to perform 12 engagements in locations throughout the city. Musical Director for the tour was John Jenkins, with Marion Williams as accompanist and boy soprano soloist Oliver Sammes.
