Mevagissey Male Choir

Founded 1974

One of Cornwall’s finest male choirs


Mevagissey – Breaking the Male Choir mould!

Spring is here and we are eagerly looking forward to kicking off the Mevagissey Male Choir concert season. On 29th April, at St John’s in St Austell, we play host to three choirs taking part in the Cornwall International Male Choral Festival. Our guests will be the ‘South Wales Gay Men’s Chorus’, the ‘Melbourne Welsh MVC’ from Australia and the Czech-based ‘Gentlemen Singers’.

Two weeks later, on 12th May, we will be back in St Austell, singing with the St Mewan Community Choir in what should be an exciting joint concert at the Holy Trinity Church. And in June we have dates in Launcells, near Bude, and here at our own Mevagissey Feast Week.

So … if you want to hear an innovative Cornish male voice choir performing an adventurous, modern and wide-ranging repertoire, put these dates in your diary now. For our new season, we have many exciting new pieces, including classic ‘60s and ‘70s songs and a Billy Joel favourite.

Details of all our concerts can be found here. But, if you can’t wait, pop into St Andrew’s between 7.30pm and 9.30pm on a Monday evening and hear us practising. You may even find you want to join us! That’s if you’re male*, of course. You would make over 50 new friends in an instant!  Just like our concerts, all our practice sessions are fun.

*If you’re female, or can’t get to St Andrew’s, simply relax with any one of our six 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 . . .”
