We love what we do and we are passionate about singing and having a fun time which is why we have performed over 1,000 concerts to date!

‘We men of Abertillery love all that belonging to a Male Voice Choir means. With our singing, comes recollections of our childhood in a dirty, noisy, politically conscious South Wales Valley. We enjoy the true fellowship, the inevitable humour, the intense concentration that are all part of twice weekly practices. None of us now spend our lives in the dark and danger of coal mining, since the closure of the last mine in our Valley! We have become technicians in clean factories, headmasters, engineers, shop owners, gentleman of retirement and yes, unfortunately some of us are unemployed. But our fathers were miners and they sang. They sang in our chapels and we sing with them. We are proud of our heritage.’

'The Choir can trace its roots back to 1933 when it was formed as an evening class under the control of the local Education Authority. Members paid a fee of 7/6d (37p) to the Authority and the same amount as an annual subscription ... The Choir continues in good heart but we are always conscious of the need to attract new and particularly younger members. To this end we have operated a Scholarship scheme for some years whereby senior pupils at local schools are paid to sing with us for a year as an introduction to choral singing. It is hoped that this will plant some seeds which will come to fruition in the future. We give a number of concerts each year in aid of local charities, church organisations, etc, and the highlight of our year is our Annual Concert when we are helped by guest professional soloists.'

‘Founded in 1919 under the initial name of Barnstaple YMCA Male Voice Choir. A local organist and musician was asked to form a choir in order that the YMCA could hold a charity concert to mark its re-opening after the end of World War I. It proved a great success and the singers agreed to stay together.

Formed 1964: ‘The Choir always welcomes new potential members. Novice or experienced singers can come along to our rehearsals, sit in with us, join in with us. Whilst having the ability to read music would be an asset it is by no-means a requirement. Potential members are first given a period of a few weeks to become familiar with the Choir’s requirements and procedures whilst rehearsing within their particular section: either Bass, Baritone, Second Tenor, or Top Tenor. When you feel comfortable and you decide that you would like to become a full member, a private audition with the Musical Director is arranged. This takes the form of singing scales and notes within your voice range so that the Musical Director can judge where best your vocal range fits within the choir. Although it sounds terribly formal be assured it is far from it and you can be sure of our help and support in encouraging you to use your voice’.

In return you can be certain of a friendly reception, a common interest in good music of all types, a great deal of fun and humour and trips to prestigious venues ...'

Founded 1962: ‘As for the future, whilst some male choirs are thriving, the national total is in decline, and sadly the opportunity to sing in a male choir may be denied to many. We believe that every adult male who can carry a tune should treat himself to the very special experience of singing as part of a group by giving a choir like ours a try. We welcome absolute beginners as well as experienced singers, and we provide learning aids and coaching to individual needs‘.

‘The Choir came into existence in 1920 when a far-sighted District Clerk, Walter Burnett, started a Choir to take men off the streets at a time of great unemployment, and provide them with an appreciation of music and a new social environment. It was hugely successful in meeting its first objective “to improve the musical education and social life of the men in the village, and to stimulate an interest in, and love for good music in the community”. As the Choir developed, their Annual Concert became a focal point for the members, a peak achievement performance and a climax for all the hard work and commitment that had gone before. It also gave the villagers the opportunity to hear and see professional quality artistes of all persuasions, at an affordable cost, something that was well beyond the reach of residents at that time.’

‘One of the East Midlands' premier choirs. The Choir varies in size between 20 to 50 members and currently stands more than 30, but there can never be too many and we are always looking for new recruits. The audition process is very strict and lengthy and very few make it. Not true! The Musical Director will shut you both into the audition room (i.e. the kitchen) and ask you to sing a few lines and notes to gauge your natural range. Are you a Bass or a Baritone, a Second Tenor or a Top Tenor? There's only one way to find out. And there's tea, coffee and biscuits at half time. A warm welcome awaits you.’
