COLWYN Choral Society have taken the decision to cancel their forthcoming concert.

This was set to be held on Saturday, March 21.

The event has been cancelled due to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. There is more than 100 positive cases in Wales.

A spokesperson for the event said: "After some discussion, it was agreed that the risk of the coronovirus becoming more widely spread later this month was a cause for real concern."

A new date for the diary has been earmarked - March 13 2021.

The spokesperson added: "We will perform the same programme with the St Cecilia Mass by Charles Gounod, the Easter Hymn by Pietro Mascagni and Feel the Spirit by John Rutter.

"We hope to see a very healthy audience there.

"We will, of course, be at St Paul's for our annual Christmas Concert this year on December 5 and will start rehearsals in September."

Anyone who is interested in joining the choir is welcome to pop along.

This is open to singers of all ages and younger participants.
