Tenby Male choir are pleased to be holding a charity concert next Thursday in aid of the Red Cross. The key words that come to mind when thinking about the Red Cross are “They are there wherever there is an emergency.” From floods and fires to terrorist attacks the Red Cross stands ready to come to the aid of people at home and abroad. We are all aware of the Red Cross at international emergencies taking aid to people in desperate circumstances but also close to home they support our fire, health and police services. They have at their disposal a fleet of modern ambulances and Land Rover 4x4 vehicles which often plug gaps in our formal emergency services. By attending our charity concert you will be helping this worthy cause as well as enjoying an evening of singing.
Your local Tenby male choir are pleased to give up our time free of charge to support this cause and many others so please come along and support us and them. We will also be featuring local musician James Crowney-Richards on tenor sax so it should be a varied evening of entertainment. The concert takes place at St. Mary’s Church Tenby on 20th April starting at 8pm.
Last week we sang at St. John’s Church and an audience of local people and some early bird holidaymakers enjoyed the choir performance and also that of yet another local musician Fred Stace-Smith on the trumpet. He gave a polished performance and was ably assisted by his accompanist Mark Thompson.
We are very grateful to Jim Cornwell who helped the choir by selling our popular CDs to audience members (those who don’t already have one!!). Jim is well known locally and recently took on the role of Tenby town crier. Jim is one of a very welcome group of volunteers who support the choir but don’t want to sing or perhaps think they can’t sing. This group is known as the Friends of Tenby Male choir and as well as taking on some of the many non-singing tasks that a choir has also organises social events to which the choir and anyone else is welcome to attend.
You can find out more about the Friends from our website or from Secretary. Contact details are shown below.
Our full choir programme for 2017 can also be downloaded in printable version from the choir website.
Later this year we will be attending the Cornwall International choir festival featuring 21 British choirs, six of them from Wales, 8 Overseas choirs from Russia, Germany, Norway, USA, Australia, Czech Republic, Sweden and Finland and no less than 28 Cornish choirs. Its going to be an interesting weekend.
The choir has a really interesting and information packed website. If you haven’t visited it at www.tenbymalechoir.org then it’s really worth a visit. Amongst other things there are videos of the choir. Webmaster David Stewart-Walvin keeps the website bang up to date with news, photos, the choir blog and absolutely anything you need to know about the choir. If you’ve enjoyed a concert there is also a guestbook where you can put your comments and read what others think. David also maintains a choir Facebook page.
He can be contacted as Secretary on anything to do with the choir on 01834 844926.
