Hear Our Song!

We were proud and pleased to be invited by BBC Wiltshire to help them celebrate their 30th birthday today. For those who didn't get to hear it in real time, our rendition of "Happy Birthday To You" can be heard at 3 mins 30 secs into the Graham Rogers show here...

Many thanks to Graham Coatman for his great arrangement which we thought sounded fantastic!

Here's a few photos of the recording session courtesy of Michele Jenner...

Ups and Downs

So far November has proved to be a hectic, harrowing month for Pewsey Male Voice Choir.

We already knew that our Choral Director of the past five years or so Daryl Taylor needed to stand down in order to fulfil travelling ambitions in retirement. We wish him all the best and have set the ball rolling to find his successor. Next we learned of the passing of long-standing members, firstly, Second Tenor Bernard Gaskin from Manningford and then, poignantly on Remembrance Sunday as we sang at Milton Lilbourne, our former Chairman, current Social Secretary and stalwart Bass 2 John Marshall. Our heartfelt condolences to the families of both our good friends.

Appropriately enough some uplift was provided on the night of Tues 13th when a sizeable contigent of members and supporters went over to the Wiltshire Air Ambulance HQ at Semington to serenade the helicopter, fundraising staff and aircrew whilst handing over a cheque for £2,000 (being the sum we have raised for the service this year).
