Highlights

All of our concerts are special but some stand out:

On Sunday 30 April 2017 we managed to fill St Goran Church with over 140 people who came to hear us sing with our guests Vocal Accord, an acapella choir from north Devon.

“The opportunity to perform in one of the informal Lunchtime concerts in Truro Cathedral was a lovely experience for the choir. The ladies certainly worked very hard for the occasion and as their MD I was delighted with the performance they gave. The beauty of the building plus the good acoustics made it very memorable and the members got a real ‘buzz’ from hearing the sound of their singing echoing throughout the building. I received some very good  compliments from the attentive audience: ‘a young vocal sound’, ‘good diction’, ‘singing without their copies…impressed’, ‘well chosen music to match the voices’, ‘varied programme….who wrote Tread Softly ?” I very much enjoyed conducting the concert, particularly their singing of the final item “The Sun and Stars” by Bob Chilcott. This piece really suits the Choir and it has the most amazing words which is really what singing is about.”
