Christmas Concert 2019

Posted on Updated on

As in previous years our Christmas concert was, once again, a resounding success.

We were extremely honoured to have Melanie and Daniel Hoadley as our guest performers and they were extremely well received by both the audience and chorus members.

Our Christmas concert is always well attended and this one was no exception with tickets selling very quickly.

The retiring collection this year was for Macmillan Cancer Support and raised a magnificent sum of money in excess of £770! Many thanks to everyone for their wonderful support.

Our next concert is on the 28TH March at the Miners Chapel, St Just – when our guest will be the well loved Tenor; Peter Ferris. Tickets will be available soon. We hope to see you all there.

Christmas with the Cornwall Symphony Chorus.

Another Concert Success

Posted on Updated on

Another wonderful Concert was recently held at St Michaels Church, Newquay. It is a wonderful venue to perform in and the sound was stupendous resulting in a few tears when the Chorus performed ‘Anthem’.

Directed and compered by Alastair Taylor and accompanied by Philip Davey, Jack Callow and Tania Lord, with guest local soloists; Tara Woollacott and Roxanne Dash, the evening was well received by the audience with numerous extremely positive comments at the finale. “It was the best classical concert I have ever been to” one gentleman said and another visitor from Denmark, who was drawn in after hearing the singing  from outside the church and decided to stay for the concert commented that he had never heard such beautiful singing before and that it was the highlight of his trip. Praise indeed.

The retiring collection was for Cornwall Air Ambulance and we are pleased to confirm that a total of £204.91 was collected which will be added to the £1.7million already raised for the new Heli Appeal. Many thanks to everyone who contributed to this worthwhile fund.

Cornwall Symphony Chorus never fail to reach the standard required to be considered a prestigious choir of reputable standing and this concert was certainly no exception.

Rehearsals are now under way for our famous Christmas Concert which will be held at Truro Methodist Church on Saturday 7th December. Further information regarding ticket sales will be advertised nearer the date.

Another wonderful concert!

Last Saturday evening’s concert at St Mary’s Church, Penzance was well received by all those who attended. Our latest offering, including several new pieces, produced enthusiastic applause alongside the professional and memorable offering by two members of the Redruth Amateur & Operatic Society Trust (RAOST), Julia Cockerham and Gareth Harris who entertained us with songs from the Society’s new production; West Side Story.

A retiring collection was made for the Samaritans.

For anyone who was not able to join us at this recent concert don’t worry. Our next creation will be on Saturday, 3rd August in Newquay at St Michael’s Church at 7.30pm. 

Our guest soloists for that evening will be Roxanne Dash, Paul Dash and Tara Woollacott, all exceptionally talented singers in their own right who will guarantee to engage and entertain the audience.

The retiring collection at that event will be for Cornwall Air Ambulance.

Cornwall Symphony Chorus have performed at St Michaels previously and there is always plenty of support so make sure you get your tickets early (available through CRBO 01726 879500 or www.crbo.co.uk), or from 01209 842977.

We look forward to seeing you there!
