Blaenavon Male Choir

Blaenavon Male Choir

Group.

Blaenavon Male Voice Choir was officially formed in 1910 and so this year (2010) we are celebrating our centenary, however there is evidence to show that men gathered in Blaenavon to sing in harmony as far back as 1873 (so we could be a bit older than our 100 years). There are now over 60 members drawn from many parts of Blaenavon, Torfaen and the surrounding area. The Choir are very fortunate to have the services of an excellent musical team led by the extremely talented Musical Director Mr. Gareth Whitcombe MA, who is supported by a very accomplished pianist in Fran Mungovin and ably assisted with Deputy Conductors Mr. Ossie Arnold and Mr. Malcolm Broom taking over when required.

The Choir has had successful tours to Cork, Norway, Hungary, France the USA and Canada and in 2007 traveled to Spain. These tours combined with concerts in the UK make it a very busy - but enjoyable time for members of Blaenavon Male Voice Choir.

The Choir has had the pleasure of performing with many operatic stars including Delme Bryn Jones, Dame Gwyneth Jones and Vada-Kiss Laylo and notable bands such as The Band of the Royal Air Force, The Royal Welch Fusiliers, The Combined Army Cadet Band, The Royal Marines, City of Coventry Band, many touring American bands and of course the Welsh Guards.

Over the years the Choir has been very successful in Eisteddfodau and has performed on numerous occasions with the massed Male Voices at the Royal Albert Hall, the choir has just finished filming with the BBC's highly acclaimed series The Coalhouse. Membership of the choir is encouraged from all ages and backgrounds.
