Connie Fisher’s Musical Map of Wales

She is about to re-join the tour of the Sound of Music playing Maria from 23rd August when it plays at Cardiff Millennium Centre, but you can see Connie Fisher for the next four weeks on BBC1 Wales starting this Monday 8th August at 7:30 pm presenting her Musical Map of Wales.

Connie trained to be a TV journalist/presenter in Cardiff, but for her career took another route via a reality show, Andrew Lloyd-Webber and the Sound of Music.

In Episode 1 of 4 she travels from Cardiff to Treorchy in a restored Welsh-made Gilbern car and sings at the Millennium Stadium. The shows are about people who are inspired by the area in which they live, and how they came to be there.

Episodes include her calling into Portmeirion for a sing-along of Ivor Novello numbers with star-gazer Russell Grant, dropping into meet Tom Jones’ biggest fan in Nefyn, following the footsteps of flower-power era Beatles in Bangor, and getting some Bollywood glamour in Snowdonia.

She gets to sing with a male voice choir, plus conduct the choir in which she used to sing, Côr Newyddion Da (Good News Choir) at a local eisteddfod.
