A Rare Opportunity to hear Cwmbrân Male Choir and Support the Poppy Appeal

St. Andrews Church, The Green, Swanwick, DE55 1AN

Saturday 29 September 2018, 7.00 p.m.

On Saturday 29th September, at 7.00 p.m. at St. Andrew’s Church, The Green, Swanwick, DE55 1AN, Cwmbrân Male Choir shares the stage with the Pye Hill & District Male Voice Choir and guest Tenor, Jason Darnel, in a concert arranged to support the Poppy Appeal.


Cwmbrân Male Choir formed in 1964 and have toured extensively throughout the United Kingdom and Europe. They have travelled as far as the USA and performed with a number of famous singers.

The last time Cwmbrân Male Choir visited this locality was in 1986 so this represents a rare opportunity to hear a quality 32 member South Wales Male Choir with an impressive pedigree.

The Pye Hill & District Male Voice Choir was formed in 1903 and are well known locally and nationally from its annual tours. The choir enjoyed a capacity audience at its last concert at All Saints Church, Kirk Hallam raising £661.00 for the church organ fund. Earlier, the choir enjoyed a successful tour of the Isle of Wight in May and continues to focus locally on raising money for charity and good causes by providing concerts.

Jason Darnell is a professional Tenor with an ever-growing reputation, both locally and further afield.

The concert programme offers something for everyone and both choirs will join together in singing at the beginning and end of the concert for what promises to be a special, not to be missed, evening’s entertainment. Expect to hear classic songs from Cwmbran Male Choir such as ‘Calon Lan’, ‘Llef’, ‘O Gymru’ and ‘Gwahoddiad’ and a variety of contemporary songs.

All proceeds from the concert will benefit the Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal.

Tickets are priced at £7.00 and are available from the Church on 01773 605291 or from Malcolm Hill of the PH&DMVC on 07706 036946 or 01773 602743.

It is anticipated that the concert will prove very popular, so you are advised to order your tickets early not to be disappointed. Should any tickets not be sold they will be placed on general sale on the evening of the concert.   

The PH&DMVC practice at the Dale Club, Jacksdale every Monday evening at 7.30 p.m, other than Bank Holiday weeks. Music, practice CD’s, Musical Directors, Accompanists and uniform are all provided for a modest membership payment. It is easy to join, so why not come along on a Monday evening, make new friends and give it a go!
