2018 commences the 10th birthday of Cornwall Symphony Chorus. To celebrate this exciting occasion, a selection of very special events has been planned including a uniquely significant Concert at Truro Cathedral.
This is a very exciting time for Chorus members, all of whom have worked extremely hard in the last 10 years to attain the immensely high musical standard that Cornwall Symphony Chorus is recognised for and continues to meet. Due mostly to the musical talents, commitment and dedication of all members, the size of the Chorus also impacts on our audience wherever we perform.
Maintaining that standard is hard work and we are always looking for new members to contribute to our success so, in preparation for our celebratory year, we would love to invite new members to come along and join the party! If you attend one of our rehearsals held on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month at Redruth School starting at 2.30pm, you can see what happens at a rehearsal, meet the team, and even join in if you feel like it!
If you would like to find out more about joining our friendly and highly praised choir please read our FAQs page (in the members join us section).
We would like to give a huge ‘thank you’ to one of our Chorus members; Christine Jones, for opening her home and garden to host a fundraising event for Chorus funds on Sunday 10th September.
The wonderful Bar-B-Que was sponsored and cooked by Christine’s’ son and other attractions included fabulous cream teas, Bric-a-Brac, beautiful garden planters, raffle and auction.
The event was enjoyed by Chorus members and their families and raised over £700 – amazing!
Many thanks Christine, to you and your family, for all your hard work and for being such a warm host. Also thanks to Chorus members who supported the event with their donations, assistance and attendance on the day.
Saturday evening’s concert at St Johns Methodist Church, St Austell was well received by all those who attended. Our latest offering, including several new pieces, alongside the exciting and professional offering by St Austell Youth Band, produced enthusiastic applause as well as, at times, participation by the audience.
The venue was new to Cornwall Symphony Chorus but was well loved by all – singers, musicians and audience alike. We hope to be able to perform there again in the future.
For anyone who was not able to join us at this recent concert don’t worry. Our next creation will be on Saturday, 5th August in Newquay at St Michael’s Church. Our guest for that evening will be the exceptionally talented singer/songwriter Chris Bannister who always commands a high turnout so ensure you get your tickets early! Tickets aren’t quite ready yet but watch this space!
Our next concert will be at St. John’s Methodist Church in St. Austell on Saturday 24th June at 7.30pm.
Our guest for this concert will St. Austell Youth Band (Musical Director Anna Minnear).
Tickets are now available here:
This will be a wonderful event and we look forward to seeing you there.
This year’s Christmas Concert was another resounding success.
As in previous years, the concert sold out extremely quickly and so the Chorus and our guests; The Duchy Tuba Quartet, entertained a packed house who were happy to participate by singing and swaying.
If you were unable to get a ticket for the Concert or simply want to see the Chorus perform again, we will be singing at Truro Cathedral on Wednesday 21st December at 8pm; the last late night shopping event in Truro before ‘the big day’. So, after completing your last minute shopping, come along to the Cathedral, relax and really get into the Christmas mood by listening to the wonderful voices of Cornwall Symphony Chorus.
We hope to see you there.
Our next Concert is our well-loved Christmas Concert at Truro Methodist Church on Saturday 3rd December.Our guest soloists this year are The Duchy Tuba Quartet, with returning compere Bruce Taylor.
Ticket prices are £10 and, as this is always a sell-out, we would strongly recommend purchasing your tickets as soon as possible.
