Aled Jones to appear at Chelmsford Cathedral

Aled Jones sets out at the end of February on a tour that will take in some of the most stunning holy buildings in the UK, including Chelmsford Cathedral on March 5

Forty years have passed since Aled was a choirboy at Bangor Cathedral, having gone onto receive countless prestigious awards, record-breaking sales and chart successes.

He is the original classical crossover star, having performed for the Pope and the Royal Family, received an MBE and racked up over 10 million album sales throughout his extraordinary career.

After beginning his career at the age of 12, Aled became one of the world’s most successful boy sopranos, releasing 12 hit albums in 4 years, with the defining moment being Walking In The Air, the hit song from the family-favourite film The Snowman. He has since released over 40 albums, and has over 40 silver, gold and platinum discs.

Aled has also forged an extensive career as a TV & Radio presenter. He hosts the most listened to show on Sunday on Classic FM, and has been a firm favourite presenting Songs Of Praise on BBC 1 for almost 20 years.

He will be joined by Brit nominee soprano Carly Paoli and pianist Tamara Konstantin, who will perform with her trio, the Three Graces, which includes world renowned cellist Jiaxin Lloyd Webber and violinist Elly Suh.
