Mevagissey Male Choir
One of Cornwall’s finest male choirs
Merry Christmas from the Mevagissey Male Choir!
Our hectic autumn schedule complete, we now look forward to our Christmas concerts. The first, on Friday 9th December, is our traditional St Andrew’s event with the Mevagissey Ladies, and this year we’re also joined by students from Falmouth School. Then, on Saturday 17th, we will be hosting a concert at the Holy Trinity Church, St Austell. In between, we’ll be singing privately for our friends at the Penrice Residential Home.
If you can’t be at any of these, why not settle back with our new Christmas CD, ‘Sing for the Child’, a delightful mix of popular seasonal songs and traditional Cornish carols, including some recorded with the Mevagissey Ladies Choir. It’s available for just £10, via this link.
The Christmas concerts bring to a close another hugely successful year for our Choir. The highlight was our glorious October adventure in Cyprus, where we raised around £1,000 for the Royal British Legion in a concert with the Achord Ladies Community Choir, and then, along with the Akrotiri and Episkopi Military Wives Choirs, entertained an audience of over 800 at the magnificent 2,000-
This followed our triumphant joint concert with the Plymouth MWC at Hall for Cornwall, and earlier successes in Newquay, Holsworthy, Noss Mayo, Penzance and, of course, the Minack. And since we’ve been back, we’ve performed in Portscatho, for the Roseland Music Society, Charlestown Church for their roof fund and the Seahorse Centre, Pentewan, for Children’s Hospice South West.
Don’t forget, if you’re in Mevagissey at 7.30pm on a Monday, why not pop into St Andrew’s and hear us practise? You’ll be made very welcome! If you’re male, you may even like to join us -

“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
… your August concert on the Mevagissey Quay in aid of Nepal Earthquake Appeal raised over £750. …thank you…

“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.”
