Cwmbach Male Choir

Founded in the Heart of Aberdare - Queen of the Valleys


A Grand Summer Finale

It has been a fabulous end to a hectic Summer schedule. On Friday 29th July the choir travelled West to Fishguard to once again entertain our friends of the Writers Conference. This year marked the choir’s 18th consecutive concert and we were once again delighted to be part of the event. It was the first time for our musical Director Dr. Mike Thomas at the event and he made a fantastic impact by selecting a range of songs that thoroughly entertained the ensemble. We were joined for the third time at this event by Joy Cornock who this year also joined the choir in “Cymru Fach.” Our accompanist Jayne Thomas was making her tenth trip to the Writers Conference and Jayne also played for Joy during her solo section. After the formalities of the concert the choir then entertained our friends with an impromptu afterglow concert that took us through to the witching hour. We are already looking forward to meeting up again next year.

And congratulations to our very own Robert Venn. On Sunday 31st July his daughter was wed at St.  Margaret's Church in Aberaman. The choir was extremely pleased to be part of the big day and to help make those celebrations that little bit more special. Robert joined the choir once the ceremony was over to help blast out “Anthem From Chess” and “This Is The Moment” before he hot footed it off the vestry to be part of the Bride and Grooms Registration.


The choir is now on its Summer break and will be back rehearsing on the 5th September.
