South Wales Gay Men’s Chorus sweeps the board at World’s Largest Male Voice Choir Festival

The South Wales Gay Men’s Chorus enjoyed a clean sweep at the biennial Cornwall International Male Choral Festival which took place over the May Day Bank Holiday, 2017, at a range of venues across Cornwall.

Competing in the 40 members or less category at the Hall for Cornwall, Truro, on Saturday 29 April 2017, the SWGMC beat other competitors from home and abroad to take the best Small Choir trophy and were later crowned as Festival Champions.

In addition to their singing success, the SWGMC also took the prize for best single piece of music. Assistant Musical Director, Christopher Fossey‘s arrangement of Somewhere Over The Rainbow, brought much praise from the adjudication panel as did the the choir’s competition programme.

The 41 and over category was won by fellow Welsh Choir, The Fron Cysyllte Male Voice Choir making a resounding success for Welsh Choirs at the festival.

    Well done Lads!!
    We didn’t see your performance, because we were behind the stage waiting to go on stage next, but we did hear your performance, which we all enjoyed. Can’t wait to see your video. Let us know when it’s available
