Members of the Arbroath Male Voice Choir are preparing for a return visit by Lesley Garrett, Britain’s most popular soprano.

She will take to the stage at the Webster Memorial Theatre, Arbroath on Thursday and Friday, March 20 and 21 for a fabulous and unforgettable evening of music and song to celebrate 80 years of the choir.

With over 40 men on stage this popular east of Scotland choir will bring audiences the power and passion of male voice singing with selections from the popular, classical and musical theatre repertoire under the direction of Sheena Guthrie.

Lesley Garrett CBE regularly appears in both opera and in concert, on television and CD. She performed with the Arbroath Male Voice Choir in two memorable concerts in March 2012

She has won both critical acclaim and the affection of many fans and music lovers.

Another big name to look out for at the Webster for the 2014 season is Nathan Carter, now the biggest name in Irish country music.

This young man, at the age of 23, has taken Ireland by storm and enjoys large crowds of full houses wherever he goes.

He is becoming a big favourite in Scotland and his Arbroath show gives an opportunity to hear some of his hits. Also in the show is Lisa Stanley, presenter on the ‘Phil Mack’ TV show and daughter of Ireland’s legendary Maisie McDaniels. The Nathan Carter Show runs on Friday, April 4 at 7.30 p.m.

The music continues on Saturday, April 5 with ‘Beyond the Barricade’.

Back by overwhelming public demand and celebrating its 15th fantastic year with a sensational new show for 2014, the UK’s longest running musical theatre concert re-creates original West End/Broadway musical hit songs with amazing authenticity; it features a cast of past principal performers from the West End production of Les Miserables and the 25th Anniversary Concert at the 02 Arena.

The UK’s leading concert of its kind includes hits from ‘Miss Saigon’, ‘The Lion King’, ‘Phantom Of The Opera’, ‘West Side Story’, ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’, ‘Blood Brothers’, ‘The Jersey Boys’ and many more, climaxing with a spectacular finale from ‘Les Miserables’.
