Celebrating over 100 years of music

Enthusiasm is at an all time high in the Wadebridge Male Voice Choir as it begins its 2023 season.

It was the good will of many that rebuilt the choir last year, after the cancellation of so many events in what would have been the centenary years of 2020 and 2021. The choir was formed in 1920, and in 1921 it had its first full concert opening with ‘Jolly Roger’. Over the last 100 years, over many songs and concerts, the choir still carries on and on. Perhaps this is because, as choir member Dr Alan Sainsbury puts it: "The joy of singing makes you feel better."

In 2022, the choir restarted its annual concerts, sang for the Bude RNLI Fundraising weekend, and took part in the Last Night of the Proms at Wadebridge Town Hall. The choir also sang in Blisland, St Endellion, and Lostwithiel.

Kickstarting 2023, the choir held its annual social at the Swan Hotel in Wadebridge. Every Wednesday night the choir members meet at the Churchill Bars to practice old songs and new. Apart from the health benefits of singing, why do people love being in the choir? Top tenor William Wood said: "It's the enjoyment you get out of it; both rehearsals and concerts. It's fun!"

Are you interested in joining Wadebridge Male Voice Choir? They are looking for new members! The choir meets on Wednesday evenings, 7.30pm-9.30pm at the Churchill Bars, Molesworth Street. For more information, call chairman Martin Lake on 07704517314.
