Concert – St Myllin’s 2019

The Concert was a great success in raising funds for the Friends of St Myllin’s and their work to keep the church building as a space for the community of Llanfyllin.

The concert was very well attended with a near-capacity house (or church!)

Thank you to all who came to support, and our thanks to the Friends of St Myllin’s for their generous hospitality.

Young men of the area – the Choir needs you.

Recruiting new members to the choir!Since the early 1950s the Choir has been singing, travelling, competing, entertaining and socialising. We are a strong Choir of about 40 members, you don’t need to be a musician or able to read music, all you need is to have a love and enjoyment of singing.

There is no better time to join the Choir – we have just been invited to sing at The Millennium Stadium at the World cup warm up game against Ireland at the end of August this year. There is no better feeling in the world than singing Mae Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau standing in the middle of pitch with the team and thousands of Welsh supporters.

We meet every Wednesday night at 8.00pm in Pennant Village Hall, Penybontfawr.

Come and have a sing song with us or just come and listen to see if it’s for you.

If you do fancy joining us, we don’t expect you to be able to attend every practice or function because we all have other commitments as well. Please come and have a go -we’d love to see you. By the way, we have a lot of fun as well.

Just come to a practice or phone Huw Morris on 01691 860220 or Alwyn Williams on 01691 648066 for more information there will be a warm welcome for you.

We are the only Male voice choir in the area, the future of the Choir depends on finding new members to keep this proud Choir going well into the future.

The Death of Lady Hooson of Colomendy and Montgomery  

It is with very great sorrow that the choir learned of the death at the age of 91 of Lady Hooson.

During the choir practice of 25th April, on the communication of this news, the choir stood in silence as a mark of respect.  She and her late husband have been generous patrons and staunch supporters of the choir over many long years.

The funeral service is to take place at noon on Saturday 5th May at the China Street Welsh Presbyterian Chapel in Llanidloes.  Our thoughts are very much with the family, and members the choir will attend the funeral to condole and pay our final respects.
