Why Join The Blaenavon Male Voice Choir? This is why!
So what is involved with singing with the Choir
The Choir is always looking to attract new recruits – young or not so young. You will not be required to have a solo quality voice but to harmonise and sing in tune and have the ability to learn and retain the extensive range of music as (with most choirs) we perform at events without music copies.
As with any other group/establishment there must be a commitment to the choir.It is beneficial to you (unless work comittments or any other factor prevent this) to attend practise twice weekly on a Tuesday and Thursday evening at Bethlehem Chapel - Broad Street in Blaenavon between 7.30pm and 9.00pm and perform,when able at the many concerts/events/weddings that the choir undertake every year.
If you think you would like to join the Choir - come along and listen and you can see how the four parts that make up a Male Voice Choir work - there is no committment to join but you will be able to see where you could fit in - don't be afraid to come and listen you will be most welcom and remember you will not be singing on your own but with a great bunch of blokes in the section which suits you..
Although the overwhelming main aim is to blend musically we also nurture the aim to blend sociably and the involvement of all family members is promoted.
The Choir performs in may places all over the country and World from tiny Chapels to Grand Cathedrals and Music Halls and also taking part in music competitions.
