UNITY SINGERS

About us

 

#1Glyn Roynon:- Musical Director
Glyn started singing in a church choir from age 7, something which he continues to do. Glyn has been a member of Bristol Choral Society for 40 years, which has opened up opportunities to sing with other major choirs and orchestras at many venues including the London Proms, and concert tours abroad. Glyn conducted a church choir from the mid 70ís, and then took the position of Musical Director for Unity Singers from 1985. This has ensured that Glyn has been, and continues to be, exposed to a wealth of music throughout his life.
