MARCH 17.  We are very sorry to have to announce that the choir is suspending all its activities due to the coronavirus crisis.  We hope to resume in September, but meanwhile all the concerts we were planning over the next three months have been cancelled.  We are desperately sorry to have to come to this decision but feel we have no alternative in light of the government's advice, delivered yesterday.   It also means that we will have to cancel our annual tour, planned for Peterborough in May.

We will miss singing and rehearsing enormously.  We will miss our audiences too, but hope that we will be reunited before too long.  Meanwhile we wish all our members and followers good health and fortune over the coming months.  

A jolly choir Christmas 

DECEMBER 16: The choir welcomed Christmas with a resoundingly successful concert for the Croydon Welsh Society on Saturday.  Performed at its customary venue of Shirley Methodist church, the concert ranged from familiar carols to more recent items in the choir’s repertoire, including a thrilling version of the Carly Simon anthem Let the River Run which was the final item in the concert and was sung for the first time.

The CMVC singers helped swell the choir to 150 for a performance which won lavish praise from critics and audience.  Inside Croydon said the singing was “magnificent” and a leading classical critic compared it his best-ever performance of the Requiem in Rome in 1970, when Luciano Pavarotti took part.
