Mevagissey Male Choir
One of Cornwall’s finest male choirs
We are now in our 42nd year. September’s Hall for Cornwall concert will be our 1,034 th and, a month
later, we will be jetting off to Cyprus to sing with two local Military Wives Choirs.
We believe our success reflects our willingness to embrace all genres of music, and to take on ever
more challenging pieces, without sacrificing quality. Our determination to entertain remains paramount. If you want to know what we mean, come and hear us!
Earlier this summer, we were joined by the Culdrose Military Wives Choir for a spectacular evening at Porthcurno’s Minack Theatre, and have recently enjoyed successful concerts at St Michael’s Church in Newquay, Holsworthy Theatre, St Peter’s Church, Noss Mayo; in St Mary’s Church, Penzance, with the Orpheus Choir; St Enoder’s and Mevagissey’s traditional Feast Week.
If you can’t wait, and you’re in Mevagissey on a Monday (apart from August), why not pop into St Andrew’s at 7.30pm and hear us practise? You’ll be made very welcome! If you’re male, you may even like to join us -
Remember, Remember 10th September!!!
Note the date now. TV’s original Plymouth Military Wives Choir, fresh from their recent triumph at New York’s Carnegie Hall, are coming to sing with us in a gala concert at Truro’s Hall for Cornwall. The ladies, who topped the charts with ‘Wherever You Are’ after starring in Gareth Malone’s hugely popular BBC2 series ‘The Choir’, are joining us again for what should be a wonderful evening’s entertainment.
It will be the fifth time we’ve shared a stage – they were guests at our 40th Anniversary Concert at Eden in 2014, and we joined them for a sell-
Tickets are already on sale (click here) – via www.hallforcornwall.co.uk or ask any Mevagissey choir member – so waste no time if you don’t want to be disappointed. (We even hope our new Christmas CD will be ready!) In the meantime, we’ll be spending every August Monday evening on the Mevagissey quayside -

“I do have a weakness for the sound of male voice choirs, and Mevagissey did not disappoint. They performed such a wide repertoire that there was literally something for everyone . . .”
“On my first visit to Mevagissey, I heard of your choir, attended a performance and heard the angels sing. I've heard other choirs, but truly, you're the best.”
“I have been listening to the choir since the ‘80s. It really relaxes me and helps me chill out on our holiday.”
“The Mevagissey Male Voice choir are not like other choirs …. they all have the most amazing voices and when put together come up with lovely harmonies.”
Judy Ward, Cornish & Devon Post, Penstowe Park

“My husband Gene and I would like to thank you for your fantastic performance… American Trilogy was absolutely brilliant . . .”
Anne Bleile, Delaware, USA
“We bought a CD after the [Minack] concert and whilst listening to 'Cornish Hearts' as we drove home, I was amazed to realise that I was crying.”
. . . your concert at Tywardreath Church raised over £1,000 for our charity.”
