April/May 2021

Lockdown has begun to ease and more choristers have had their second ‘jab’. We hope that with the warmer weather will come a return to ‘real’ rehearsals and performances. You can check out our ‘Forthcoming Events‘ and see when we hope to be able to perform in public again.
The choir has always prided itself on giving a platform to young performers. For the ones just about to begin a career in music the past year has been difficult.
Below are links to some of them during their ‘lockdown year’.
Firstly we have our 2020 St David’s Day soloist, Laurence Kilsby. He released a version of Suo Gan with the internationally renowned, award-winning Carducci String Quartet. When Laurence sang this at our concert, members of the audience were enchanted by his voice and impeccable Welsh. The choir are currently rehearsing this piece for inclusion in our future concerts.


In addition to his day job, Alex Howgego, previous accompanist, has been performing as a member of the Attic House Studio Band. They recently released this wonderful cover version of ‘Before He Cheats’.

Our 2018 award winning soloist, Samantha Oxborough, has released an unusual duet with herself. She is singing the Lakme Flower Duet. Unfortunately it only has a Facebook link. I hope that you like it.

Finally, in Germany, mezzo soprano Anna-Louise Costello will be singing La Ciesca in an upcoming production of Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi with Berlin based Passaggio Oper. More details on their Facebook page.

Our other soloists are also busy, ready to sing for for the public as soon as it’s possible.
