On Saturday we were honoured to be asked to sing at Leanne and William’s wedding which was held at Llangynidr Church. It was a lovely day and the choir thoroughly enjoys performing at weddings and to be part of the couples special day.

Members of the choir were delighted to be invited to sing at the Guildhall in Brecon on Sunday, for an event organised by the Saline Twinning Association. Representatives from Saline, Michigan, USA were present including Brian Marl, Saline’s Mayor. Manny Trailor, Brecon town Mayor, was also in attendance, together with members of Brecon Town Council and the Twinning Association. Here was a great opportunity for old friendships made during the previous choir visit in 1992 to be renewed. Only 3 original members and 1 past member were present from this time, as well as our MD and our accompanist, Aysha Waghorn. We will have to start planning to visit Saline again in the near future.

The choir was very pleased to sing in Merthyr Cynog Community Hall at Upper Chapel Saturday evening, 13th July, for their church fund raising Summer Concert. Our very own soloists Harvey Cloke and Marc Williams performed individually and together. Marc gave an excellent performance of Elton John’s ‘Your Song’ at the piano. Also, Becky Drysdale (our accompanist) played her Bassoon. There were performances by the YFC Girls Choir, which made for a most enjoyable evening. We were grateful to the local community for providing the refreshment afterwards.
