Mevagissey Male Choir

Founded 1974

One of Cornwall’s finest male choirs


Happy New Year from Mevagissey Male Choir!

Can 2017 be half as much fun, or as successful, as last year? We gave no fewer than 24 performances – almost one a fortnight! – and raised thousands of pounds for many good causes. And we increased our numbers again, to 59; over the past three years we have welcomed 12 new members on to the risers. We closed the year with excellent Christmas concerts in Mevagissey, Porthpean and St Austell, and booming sales of our Christmas CD, ‘Sing for the Child’. But the highlight has to have been our glorious October adventure in Cyprus, where we performed in the magnificent 2,100-year- old Kourion amphitheatre with the Akrotiri and Episkopi Military Wives Choirs - our two Cyprus concerts – one with the Achord Ladies Choir - helped raise a combined total of over £3,000! And, of course, there were our record-breaking joint concert in Truro with the Plymouth MWC and a spectacular evening at the Minack with the Culdrose MWC.

Our 2017 concert schedule starts, as usual, not until the spring, when, on 29 th May, we play host again to a number of choirs taking part in the Cornwall International Male Choral Festival at St John’s in St Austell, and besides our many traditional events, we are already looking forward to visiting Stithians, Launcells and Ilfracombe. For more details watch this space.

Meanwhile, if you’re in Mevagissey at 7.30pm on a Monday, why not pop into St Andrew’s and hear us practise? You’ll hear us working on several fresh additions to our wide-ranging – classics to pop - repertoire. You may even like to join us – if you’re male, of course! You’ll make 50 new friends in an instant! Alternatively, contact Graham Rundle on 07799 512295, or any other choir officer [here].

If you’re female, and can’t get to St Andrew’s, simply relax with ‘Sing for the Child’ or any of our other five CDs, which you can order here.

“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 . . .”
