Important update regarding Christmas Concert tickets:

Posted on

As expected, tickets are going extremely well for our Christmas Concert – I guess many are eager to start going out again – so, if anyone still has a ticket they had purchased for the cancelled St Just Concert ( March 2020), please contact our Treasurer, Alice Allsworth on 07870 676412, to arrange for a refund rather than an exchange. You will then be able to purchase a Christmas ticket if you wish to. You will notbe able to attend, and gain entry to, the Christmas Concert with a St Just Concert ticket so ensure you contact our Treasurer to arrange the refund.


With regards to the ongoing situation with Covid, we are not making it mandatory for anyone to wear a face covering at the concert, but fully understand if you wish to do so. On the day of the concert If you, or anyone in your household or support bubble is feeling unwell or has displayed any symptoms of Covid-19 please stay at home and follow government guidelines. As much as we would love to see you all, we would appreciate your understanding and co-operation in this as we need to ensure everyone is kept as safe as possible.

After an extremely long 17 months, unable to sing or meet each other, the Cornwall Symphony Chorus have finally returned and joined together for our first rehearsal. What an experience it was for us all – it was as if we’d never been away! For all those members who thought their voices were not in a good place; how wrong they were! The sound was amazing with 17 months of pent up singing just waiting to be set free.

Now we have started rehearsals for our first Concert which will be the much loved Christmas Concert on Saturday 4th December 2020 at Truro Methodist Church at 7.30pm. Always an unforgettable Concert for Chorus and audience alike, this year will be extra special after the unsettling 17 months we have all experienced, and we wanted to give you advance notification that WE ARE BACK!

Further information will be put on the website and Facebook nearer the time regarding ticket availability but we hope you will be as excited about this Concert as we are – we certainly look forward to seeing you all again.

With Sympathy

Posted on

The sad news we have received today that His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh has died will be, I am sure, upsetting for many.

His unswerving dedication to our Country and committed support to his wife; our Queen Elizabeth II, enabled her and the Royal Family to carry out their duties for over 70 years.

The Committee and members of Cornwall Symphony Chorus wish to extend our sympathy to the Royal Family at this most sad time.

Merry Christmas to you all.

2020 has been a most difficult year for everyone!

For all of our members in Cornwall Symphony Chorus it has been a frustrating and, for some, a lonely year. As a group we find our fortnightly rehearsals a real pleasure; an opportunity to come together, sing and socialise. It is a well-known and accepted fact that singing, especially in a choir, can have a positive effect on a person and this has been missed by many during 2020.

Performing for all our friends and supporters is also great fun for us and that has been sadly lacking this year, disappointingly so.

However, looking forward into 2021, our intention is to get back to singing together again. Plans are in place to start rehearsals (safely distanced of course and abiding by guidelines) and new songs will be learnt, to ensure we are ready for our concert on July 17th at Truro Methodist Church.

The concert will be advertised, and tickets be made available during the first half of 2021 so keep checking on the website.

In the meantime, the Cornwall Symphony Chorus would like to wish all our friends a very Happy Christmas and a Peaceful New Year, with the hope that 2021 will be safer for everyone and allow us all to regain some sense of ‘normality’ again.

Nadelik Lowen!

Christmas Concert

Posted on

As everyone is aware, our Christmas Concert really is the highlight of our, and we suspect your, annual calendar and a great deal of practice is put into making it a wonderful experience for everyone involved. Sadly this year, due to the Covid 19 virus, our members have not been able to attend any rehearsals so, with great reluctance, the decision has been made to cancel the Christmas Concert in December. The welfare of our chorus members, as well as our ever loyal supporters, is of paramount importance to us which prompted this decision.

For those of you who had purchased tickets for our St Just concert, we had advised you that those tickets could be swapped for the Christmas concert tickets which will not now be an option. However, the two choices now available to you is as follows:

  • Retain your tickets and exchange them for the first concert for 2021 which will be in July at Truro Methodist Church or,
  • You can request a refund from our Treasurer; Alice Allsworth. You must return your tickets to her including full details of your name and address and, upon receipt of the tickets, she will issue a cheque to you. If you choose to request a refund please contact Alice on 07870 676412to obtain further details.

Looking forward, Alastair Taylor, our Musical Director, and the Cornwall Symphony Chorus are excited about our plans including lots of new music which we know everyone will love.

We have sorely missed performing for you all; music is an important part of our lives as I suspect it is for you. However, following this break, we intend to come back stronger than we were before and we look forward to seeing you all again!

Sally Woollacott, Vice Chair

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.
