New Year and More New Faces

22 February 2024 Dave Bannister writes: There was an appreciative audience at St John's Old Coulsdon on 17 February for CMVC's first outing in 2024. For the second concert in succession, the choir included a number of new faces as more aspiring choristers from October's recruitment Open Evening felt confident enough to stage. In his opening remarks, Music Director Matthew Quinn welcomed them and commented how encouraging it was that the Sandilands rehearsal room seemed to have more people in it every week.

A great choir Christmas - now for 2024!

January 1 2024: The choir enjoyed a busy Christmas. Its activities began with the choir’s traditional Christmas concert at St John’s Shirley on 9 December.  It was an evening of firsts. Andrew Moore made his debut appearance with the choir,  covering for regular conductor and fellow Northern Irishman Matthew Quinn who was called home for a family emergency.

They started in front of the historic Globe pub in Borough Market where a huge crowd soon gathered around, entranced by selection of songs included the dramatic Nessun Dorma. The choir moved on to the Golden Hinde where hats and a pirate flag were produced to accompany a couple of rollicking sea shanties.

The Sandilands Shanty Crew is an offshoot of Croydon Male Voice Choir, formed by nine members across the choir’s sections and named after the CMVC’s rehearsal base.  They have been singing for around three years, after starting up during the Covid lockdown,  and this was their biggest gig to date.

Come and try us!

July 30:  The choir is to hold an Open Evening at  Sandilands on Thursday October 19, starting at 7.30pm.    Potential new members will be able to meet the choir, do some singing and get a taste of all its activities.

So if you are interested in joining the choir or trying us out, take a look around our website to find out more about us.  You will see how much energy we devote to our singing and how much pleasure it gives us.
