Just a reminder to all Choristers that practice starts after the summer break on Friday 8th September at 7:30pm.

 It is a great time for new members to join as we get rid of the summer rustiness. Royal Albert Hall next year and lots of new arrangements to learn so new voices will learn with us. You dont have to catch up too much. It would be great to welcome some new faces. You will find us a very friendly bunch, ??

The choir will be perfoming at the Royal Albert Hall, London on 19th May 2018 as part of the massed Welsh Male Voices concert. We are hard at work learning many new pieces.

It is a great time to join the choir and experience the camaraderie and fun of singing. Don't be shy, even if you have not sung before. Why not come to a practice session on a Tuesday or Friday at Rhymney Comprehensive school at 7:30pm - 9:00pm. You will be sure of a warm welcome. ??.
