Caerphilly Community Chorus was formed in September 2009 to provide an adult mixed choir for the Caerphilly area in South Wales. In September 2011 we added a Children’s Choir to cater for younger singers.
Caerphilly Community Chorus is an open access, muilt-generation choir. We encourage adult members of the community (aged 15 years and above) to join us as we begin to learn new repertoire. We don’t hold auditions for new members, though the ability to sing in tune is obligatory! So just come along and try us for yourself.
The best times of the year to join are September or January, though, if you are an experienced singer, come along at any time of the year.
A bit about us
The chorus recently commenced its fifth season. Last year we gave a very successful Christmas Concert with our special guests, the Welsh Symphonic Brass Ensemble. In June we gave the first performance of a new work, Requiem Cambrensis, written by Nigel Jones, to commemorate the centenary of the Senghenydd Mining Disaster of 1913. Both the Community Chorus and Children’s Choir took part in this performance. A second performance of the requiem took place at Blackwood Miners’ Institute on Saturday 5th October. On 11th October we welcome our new Musical Director, Rosie Howarth, who joined our music team. Our Christmas concert took place on Friday 20th December 2013 at St Helen’s Church, Caerphilly. The New Year rehearsals start on Friday 10th January 2014.
