London Welsh festival of Male Choirs - 13th October 2018

The Orpheus Choir was proud to participate in the London Welsh Festival of Male Choirs in the Royal Albert Hall on Saturday 13th October. 15 Choirs from all over the world joined the London Welsh MVC under their Director Edward-Rhys Harry in a magnificent celebration of song, with touching Remembrance items vying with powerful Welsh hymns and popular items from the world of musicals. Accompanied by the Band of the Welsh Guards, Annabelle Thwaite on piano, and James Hearn on the mighty organ, the sound of 800 voices thrilled a capacity 5000-strong audience. Excellent soloists added their own talented contributions.

A truly memorable day and we hope to be invited back on a future occasion!

Vauxhall MVC 75th Anniversary Concert – 16th June 2018

At the invitation of the Vauxhall MVC, Wycombe Orpheus returned to Dunstable after 5 years to celebrate VMVC’s 75th Anniversary last Saturday, along with St Edmundsbury MVC with whom we have also performed in joint concerts. With a combined force of 100+ voices, some of the traditional choruses raised the roof in the splendid acoustic of Dunstable’s Methodist Church. Yet there was superb quality in all three Choirs – quiet reflective pieces, French, pop (yes that was us!) and an overall feeling that we delivered a great concert to an appreciative audience. View some Photos here, thanks to Richard Stevens who took them.
