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.

Choir travel to Warrington




Members of the choir with Lyn and Becky, recently travelled to Warrington in Cheshire, to sing at the wedding of Mark Brian’s son at St Matthew’s Church in Stretton and afterwards at the reception held at Arley Hall. Mark is one of our top tenors, and we were delighted he was able to sing with us on this special occasion. Congratulations Alex and David.

Care after Combat is a UK based charity providing professional assistance for the well-being of Veterans and their family. The Spring Ball included an auction to raise money to continue supporting Welsh Veterans. Guests included Jim Davidson OBE, Sheri Hamilton-Shaw (X Factor), Kev Johns MBE (Swansea Sound) and Will Kevans (Caricaturist).


On Saturday 18th May 2019, the choir along with Lyn and Aysha enjoyed a weekend trip to High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire, to join The Wycombe Orpheus Male Choir, for their annual concert in Wycombe Swan Theatre. The concert also promoted the very best of talent from the Orpheus’s Festival of Young Musicians and there were fantastic performances from the High Wycombe Music Centre Saxophone Choir and Borlase Barbershop. The singing then continued late into the night at the “Afterglow”.
