Mevagissey Male Choir

Founded 1974

One of Cornwall’s finest male choirs


Mevagissey – Breaking the Male Choir mould!

Do you think male voice choirs only sing traditional hymns and church music? Think again. Have your heard Freddie Mercury’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ in four-part harmony? Or Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’, Robbie Williams’ ‘Angels’, or Queen’s ‘Fat Bottomed Girls’?

Mevagissey Male Choir’s adventurous, modern and wide-ranging repertoire includes them all. And for our new season we have exciting new pieces from the ‘60s and ‘70s, plus a Billy Joel favourite and many more.

Musicals, pop and the classics all feature alongside traditional choir pieces and songs from Cornwall’s own rich choral heritage. Our only speciality is quality.

Come and hear for yourself when our season begins in the spring. On 29th May, we play host to three choirs taking part in the Cornwall International Male Choral Festival at St John’s in St Austell, after which we have dates in Stithians, Launcells and Ilfracombe, to name just three new locations. More details here.

If you can’t wait, pop into St Andrew’s from 7.30pm 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 – and would like to make over 50 new friends in an instant! (Or phone Graham Rundle on 07799 512295)

We’ll be delighted if 2017 is half as much fun, or successful, as last year, when the highlight was our glorious October adventure in Cyprus, where we performed two concerts, including one with a combined Military Wives Choir in the spectacular 2,100-year-old Kourion amphitheatre. Together they raised a combined total of over £3,000! And then there was our record-breaking September concert in Truro with the Plymouth MWC and a wonderfully atmospheric evening at the Minack in May with the Culdrose MWC.

But all our concerts are fun. That’s why we do it!

*If you’re female, and 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 . . .”
