Mevagissey Male Choir
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-
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-
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 . . .”
“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…

“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.”
