What an amazingly wonderful event! The long awaited celebratory Concert with our two Vice Presidents; Alan Opie and John Treleaven was an unprecedented success with everyone; Chorus, Soloists, Accompanists and audience greatly enjoying the evening.
Held in such superb surroundings, the sound of the Chorus was amazing, reaching right to the back of the Cathedral for all to appreciate. As expected, our soloists delighted us with their individual performances but stepped it up to the next level with their duets, especially the well-known “Pearl Fishers Duet” which produced a tear or two from some audience members.
Well done to everyone involved – all the hard work paid off.
If you were unable to join us for this Concert, don’t worry. We are now in rehearsals for our renowned Christmas Concert which will be held on December 1st at Truro Methodist Church. Continue watching this space for details regarding ticket sales!
The most important Concert of 2018 is our long awaited event at Truro Cathedral; ‘Voices in Harmony – A Musical Celebration’.
As the title suggests, this Concert is a celebration of Cornwall Symphony Chorus’ 10 years of singing and performing together. It has also been made extra special by our two Vice Presidents, John Treleaven and Alan Opie, who have enthusiastically agreed to join us for this commemorative occasion.
They last sung together 35 years ago and, as Cornish lads, they are just as excited about performing together again, as we are to have them both joining us here in Cornwall for this significant event.
Do not miss this unique opportunity as this truly promises to be a musical celebration of ‘Voices in Harmony’.
Tickets can be purchased at The Hall for Cornwall – go to www.hallforcornwall.co.uk for further details.
Yet again, the Cornwall Symphony Chorus Christmas Concert was a sell-out success.Tickets for our Christmas get-together are always in demand and this last Concert was no different.
We had two old friends with us; Bruce Taylor as our Compere and Ben Hoadley as our guest soloist – both of whom are always well received by both audience and Chorus alike.
This Concert was also an opportunity for the ladies of the Chorus to reveal their fabulous new tops and there were numerous complimentary comments about how stunning they looked!
Well done to all!
For those of you who were unable to attend our recent Christmas Concert we will be singing again at Truro Methodist Church on the 30th December as the guests of Chris Bannister. We will also be launching our new Charity CD at this event. Further details provided in the advert below:
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.
Rehearsals are going really well here. Dusting off our Christmas music today to start preparing for our popular Christmas concert. As you can guess, as it’s only September, that we prepare months in advance so that we can give the best sound as possible for you.
With the wonderfully witty Duncan Warren from Radio Cornwall compering and with the added bonus ofsinging to an almost full venue, the Chorus held the attention of the whole audience and received rapturous applause throughout the evening. As a returning guest performer for the Concert, Chris Bannister kept everyone entertained with his ‘John Denver’ style of singing and the perfectly combined voices of both Chris and Chorus members with their rendition of Annie’s Song (sung twice as it was so well received) resulted in a standing ovation from the audience with calls for this to be recorded and sold for Charity.
Attendance at St Michaels Church, Newquay is always good and there is no doubt Cornwall Symphony Chorus will sing there again. I feel sure we will hear the same class of positive comments next time.
