'First formed in 1941 as a village choir. The tradition of singing a wide variety of music at local events and raising money for charity was established then, and has continued to the present day. Today we are a choir of 60 members ... We perform three main concerts each year and work hard to achieve high standards within a wide repertoire, including music from traditional to modern classics, from sacred and oratorio pieces to folk and show songs. Currently our membership is full, but we are always interested to hear from singers as circumstances may change. It is not essential to be able to sight read music, only to have an ability to learn and sing in parts, as help and encouragement is always available with learning CD’s provided for learning at home.'

We don’t commit ourselves either way immediately - there has to be some flexibility on both sides - then, after about three weeks, there is an informal voice test.’

Marlborough Community Choir is open to everyone, of any age, and any musical experience (including none at all). We will have a very eclectic repertoire, spanning folk, world music, pop, reggae, and Motown. The only music not included is what might be considered serious classical or sacred ... MCC is not a performance choir but there will be opportunities to perform, especially for community causes. Let me know of any and we’ll do it if we have enough voices ... There will be a lot of silliness, because I like it and because we’re here to have fun. And laughter is a great preparation for singing.‘

'Formed in January 2010 ... open to anyone aged 18 years and over to come along and enjoy the experience of singing with others some of the most wonderful music. At present the Choir has over 60 members, some of whom have been attracted to the choir from Swansea and Bridgend as well as the surrounding district of Neath ... The Choir is ideal for those who have always wanted to sing with others but are wary of taking on a heavy commitment of rehearsals, concerts, charity events, tours, etc. This is NOT the aim or purpose of Neath Polyphonic Choir, whose weekly rehearsals are fun experiences for everyone and the Choir’s two or three concerts a year are just an additional highlight.'
