The Choir recently had a very successful concert at the Village Hall in Dolfor. The choir, under the musical directorship of Christine Roberts, was accompanied by John ‘Bassoon’ Evans on this occasion. The choir would like to thank John for agreeing to play the piano at such short notice.
The choir performed a variety of songs from a range of different genres which was well received by the choir. Many thanks to Lucy Owen who provided some photos of the night which can be found here . If you have any more photos please of the night please email Jonathan@newtownmalevoicechoir.co.uk
On 28th. September, a coachload of choristers and supporters travelled to Plymouth for a four day tour, staying at the New Continental Hotel in the city. There was an opportunity to explore the city and to take the ferry to the seaside villages of Cowsand and Kingsand. Back at Plymouth Ho, after passing Smeaton’s Tower, the War Memorial had a very impressive ‘poppy display’ where a ‘Last Post’ ceremony took place daily at 6 o’clock. Some of the choir had the opportunity to sing ‘Calon Lan’ at this ceremony, to a large appreciative crowd that had gathered there.
On Saturday 30th., September there was a concert at Holbeton Church, a few miles to the east of Plymouth. Newtown Male Voice Choir was joined on stage by the ‘Girls Night Out’ choir from the area, performing to a full church. Compere for the choir was Mrs Lucy Owen; Mrs Christine Roberts was the conductor with Mrs Gill Owen as accompanist. Mrs Enid Morgan (choir secretary) was responsible for the arrangements with some assistance from Robin Lavers. A very enjoyable and rewarding visit.
Many thanks to Lucy Owen who provided some photos from the Choirs recent trip to Cornwall. These can be seen in the Gallery Page.
