The Four Nations Lions’ Male Choir, formed in 2001 by Mark Burrows of Cardiff, was created to follow the British and Irish Lions’ Rugby tours.
Featuring a changing lineup of talented choristers from Wales, England, Scotland and Ireland, they have previously toured Australia in both 2001 and 2013, New Zealand in 2005, and South Africa in 2009.
Once again, the choir has returned to New Zealand for the 2017 British and Irish Lions Tour to perform in Auckland, Christchurch, Napier and Palmerton North, conducted by Ieuan Jones.
After previously being asked to perform the Lions anthem at all three tests in the 2005 New Zealand tour, Mark Burrows has brought together more than 50 performers for the choir’s latest tour.
Beginning their tour with a sold-out show in Auckland on Test Day last Saturday to 4,000 Lions’ supporters in The Cloud, they will continue to perform to a nation of old friends and new connections. As said by Mark Burrows himself, “Whatever the outcome of the rugby, we know the choir will make new and lasting friendships”.
