A special concert is set to take place at Bath Abbey this November to celebrate the life of Kieron Jones, who passed away last month after a battle with bowel cancer.
The concert on Friday 3rd November, called “My Son – My Brother”, will mark the life of Kieron, who was the middle son of Bath’s music man, Grenville Jones.
Kieron passed away on 11th July, just two days before his 47th birthday.
He lived in Dulwich in London with his wife Marianna, son Artur, 14, and Melodie, aged 9.
Kieron was diagnosed with bowel cancer three years ago and passed away at St Christopher’s Hospice in Sydenham. The concert will support cancer charities.
Grenville explained: “All the ticket income and a retiring collection will go to charity and the concert will feature both words and music to celebrate the life and talents of my special son.”
Kieron was born in Farmborough and became head boy at Beechen Cliff School.
He studied at Swansea University and followed a career in drama and music.
In his later years, he worked with many senior schools across Denmark with his hugely popular ‘Shakespeare Works’ workshops.
The concert on 3rd November will feature music from many of the groups linked to the family, including the Worship Group from St Phillip and St James’ led by Kieron’s brother, Daniel Jones.
Special guests include classical pianist Nurry Lee, violinist Lizz Lipscombe and a celebration choir of 150 voices comprising singers from both Grenville and Laurie Jones’ mixed-voice choirs.
The much-travelled City of Bath Male Choir, founded by Grenville 15 years ago, will also perform.
Tickets are priced at £18 and are available from gac.ticketlight.co.uk.
