It was 1989 when the Choir joined with Mike Peters and The Alarm to record the iconic 'A New South Wales' The combined sound of The Alarm and the Morriston Orpheus will once again be heard on Saturday 10 October 2015 at The Alarm's special 30th Anniversary Concert at Wales' Millennium Centre. (Click to read a review of the concert).
Ahead of the concert Mike Peters recently popped in to see the Choir at rehearsal. As well as meeting up with a number of Choristers who featured in the original recording Mike also took the opportunity to join in with a few songs the Choir were practising for future concerts.
A few pictures from the evening are included below but first have a look at the video from the original recording of A New South Wales.
