We depart Pembrokeshire for a five day tour to Coventry on the morning of the 28th June 2018. We have several concerts scheduled over the five days and will post the venues and times at a later date.
A number of local choirs are coming together to perform a massed Festival of choirs Remembrance Concert on Sunday the 11th November 2018 at The Tabernacle Chapel in Haverfordwest. Time to be confirmed.
Sunday 11th February we got together at Nant Y Fin Hotel Llandisilio for our post Christmas lunch. This is one of the occasions we look forward to as we are back to practice after the Christmas break and it’s always good to get together in a relaxed atmosphere. Maggie our chairperson handed out the quiz which had a Valentine theme as it was close to Valentines day, The prize won by Jenny and her husband Phil was an appropriate pack of love hearts which were shared around all of the tables. We met at 12.30 for a 1pm start and the socialising finished about 3.30pm following the raffles being called and coffee & mints enjoyed. Everyone enjoyed the afternoon and are looking forward to our next social get together.
Final concert of 2017 a resounding success
We held our annual Christmas concert on Friday 8th December. The Candlelight Carol Service a performance in words and music with narrators Geraint Sayers and Chloe Wheeler and Jo Gascoigne on cello.
Funds raised went to St. Mary’s organ fund as usual following the Christmas concert. We were accompanied as always by Gerry with Jo Gascoigne on the cello for some of the pieces. Following the opening number ‘Sweet little Jesus boy’ we sang ‘Guadete’ accompanied by Emma and Carol on recorders whilst percussion fell to Gerry and Jo. We were led by our Musical Director Nancy and we enjoyed the performance introducing some new pieces for 2017 along with some old favourites, closing with a rousing ‘Joy to the World’
Soloists were Carol accompanied on Piano by Nancy and Emma on Oboe. Kathryn accompanied on piano by Nancy and Jo on cello and Frances who performed the opening solo.
Following the concert everyone was invited to join us for mince pies and mulled wine. The concert brought to an end another busy year for us, we are now enjoying a well-deserved break. Rehearsals will resume on 11th January 2018 anyone interested in joining the choir is welcome to come along to Albany Church Hall, Hill Street, Haverfordwest on Thursday evening at 7.30pm.

On Saturday 25th November 2017. we enjoyed an evening of 60’s & 70’s music, with a disco by Glyn who took us on a nostalgic trip down memory lane with great music from our younger days. We all enjoyed the delicious supper prepared by members of the choir, then back to the music as we danced the night away. We are all looking forward to our next fundraiser.
