On Friday 7th July 2017 we held our annual concert at The Pencoed Welfare Hall, where a packed audience were treated to a selection of pieces sung by the choir.
We were fortunate to be joined by soloist Victoria Prickett who entertained the crowd with Phantom of the Opera and My Fair Lady.
As if this was not enough of a treat, we were also joined by the very talented Croesty Primary School Choir, who sang a Lion King Medley, Tom Jones Medley and Michael Jackson and Take That hits.
At the end of the evening a presentation took place for Croesty Primary School as they were our chosen charity for 2016. The choir presented with a cheque for £500 which will be used to purchase outdoor play equipment. We hope the children will get lots of enjoyment out of their chosen equipment.
On Friday 13th July 2018 we held our Annual Concert at the Welfare Hall Pencoed, where once again we had a packed audience.
Again we were fortunate to be treated to solos performed by Victoria Prickett and also to 2 piano solos by Mr Phil Stinton. In addition to this the audience were given a treat when Pencoed Primary School Choir sang This is Me from the Greatest Showman and Thank You For the Music by Abba . A quartet from the school then sang A Million Dreams again from The Greatest Showman a real treat. The choir sang one of the new pieces it has added o the repertoire, an Andrew Lloyd Webber medley which from comments we received went down really well.
We also welcomed some of our new Patrons to the concert the Mayor and Mayoress of Bridgend Councillor John McCarthy and his wife Judy and Mr Huw Irranca Davies AM for Ogmore. It was also announced that Mr Chris Elmore MP for Ogmore and Councillor Mr Richard Williams and his wife Julie have also become Patrons of the choir. Also present was Councillor Mr Doug John the current Mayor of Pencoed who has been President of the choir for over 40 years.
Next year is the 40th anniversary of the choir so look out for events to raise awareness of the choir and to help raise numbers to the choir.
On Friday 5th July 2019 the choir held a very special Annual Concert in its 40th Anniversary Year at Pencoed Comprehensive School. To help celebrate we were joined by Bridgend Male Voice Choir and Harpist Heledd Lyne. The Choir sang a range of music from their repertoire including additional Abba pieces and a debut piece 'When we were young' by Adele. Bridgend Male Voice performed several Welsh pieces. items by John Rutter, arrangements by J.Howard, Spiritual and perhaps the one that went down the best Singing in the Rain. Harpist Heledd Lyne played a selection of Harp Solos. It was a really enjoyable evening with the choir raising more money than it has in previous years.
