Caerphilly Male Voice Choir
23 September 2017
Start times: 19:30
This concert has been postponed. We will be announcing the reschedule date shortly.
Caerphilly Male Voice Choir was formed in 1906. Our founders were members of the Caerphilly Cricket Club. It was following a cricket match in St Fagan's that the choir was formed. They started the choir amidst the Industrial revolution in South Wales. Their aim was initially to make money to improve their facilities. There were 20 members to begin with and it then grew to support the local community at gatherings and occasions.
The Caerphilly Male Voice Choir will be singing a number of well known and much loved Welsh songs such as Gwahoddiad, Calon Lan, Myfanwy and Yfory together with a selection of more modern choir arrangements of items such as Delilah, Anthem (From Chess), and World in Union for their forthcoming concert at the Stroud Subscription Rooms on Saturday September 29th.
Cheryl Roberts Soprano will be the guest soloist artist for the evening. Cheryl's singing started as a young girl winning many Eisteddfod competitions and training with Margaret Thomas (Birmingham Conservatoire) and Robert Latham. She graduated from the Welsh College of Music and Drama and was guest soloist at the Proms in the Royal Albert Hall with the BBC National Chorus of Wales. She performs regularly all over the UK with The Caerphilly Male Voice Choir and at the Subscription Rooms concert she will announce her own choice songs.
