The host for the Powys Business Awards ceremony being held in Newtown next month has been revealed as opera singer and radio presenter Wynne Evans.

Mr Evans is one of the UK's leading tenors, having performed as a principal with all of the major opera houses and orchestras, including Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, Welsh National Opera and English National Opera.
 
His vast concert and recital repertoire has included collaborations with many of the nation's première ensembles, including The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, BBC Concert Orchestra and London Symphony Orchestra.
 
In 2009 Wynne became the face and voice of the multi million pound advertising campaign for GoCompare.com, playing the flamboyant character Gio Compario.
