Singer Jonathan Veira, who is well known for his appearances on BBC’s Songs of Praise, is returning to Gorleston at the end of January, at St. Andrew’s Church, with his latest one-man show which blends a love of hymns with his own style of laughter, storytelling and entertainment. It will be his fourth visit to the town where he’s previously appeared at Cliff Park Community Church and twice played to large houses at Gorleston Pavilion.

Jonathan’s rich voice covers many styles of music, including opera where he is a regular performer with Glyndebourne and other companies. But over the years he has developed a number of one-man shows, most recently focussing on hymns. He explains that he feels so many familiar hymns from the past can speak to people today, so he and his wife Sue have composed new tunes or arrangements. “These are glorious, singable and memorable new tunes for some wonderful old hymns – breathing new life into the stunning words!” he says. The Hymns Project has resulted in a CD and a music book.

His recent appearance on Songs of Praise in October, which also revealed a love of classic cars, saw him perform his version of ‘O Love that will not let me go’ which was really well received.  He says he is once again looking forward to a return visit to Gorleston and sharing his sense of humour, love of hymns and encouraging the audience to join in: “We have had a fantastic time teaching them to people, it is just great to hear people SING! I love it!”

‘Jonathan Veira is the latest Christian musician to appear at St.Andrew’s Church. In 2017 worship song writer Stuart Townend played to a packed church of over 300 people as did composer and worship leader Graham Kendrick who was there in May this year.’
