Weybridge MVC on BBC TV!

The Weybridge Male Voice Choir was the feature choir on BBC London News on the 11th July at 6.55pm - 5mins before the England vs Croatia match in the World Cup. We were singing 'Three Lions' and getting behind the team ahead of the Semi-Final.  We were also featured nationally later on BBC Newsnight.

A shame it wasn't quite the result we were all looking for!

Autumn Concert News

Yes, we know! Difficult to think about Autumn in the middle of the current heatwave!  However, time flies when you're having fun and 29 September, the date of our Autumn Concert, is not really so far away.

2018 marks the centenary of the Armistice which ended World War 1, which is why we have titled the concert 'For the Fallen'. The theme of the first half will be Remembrance of the more than nine million soldiers who lost their lives in the conflict. We will be joined, very appropriately, by the Kingdom Brass Ensemble, a professional and versatile brass quintet with a military background, comprised of some of the country’s foremost brass musicians  who have been playing together in different ensembles for many years.

For the second half of the concert we will move to more joyous Celebration, with Kingdom Brass Ensemble playing more light-hearted pieces and the Weybridge Male Voice Choir singing their hearts out and including both ‘Run’, which was very popular when we brought it into our programme at our Spring Concert, and a first performance of the exciting ‘Africa’, arranged specially for us by Johnny Kilhams, our Musical Director.  

The concert is likely to be another sell-out, so make sure to get your tickets, on sale now:,

Our MD's Vision for the Choir

 

Weybridge Male Voice Choir has been performing to audiences and raising money for good causes and national and international charities for nearly one hundred years. I consider it a real honour to be the Musical Director of this choir, and my hope and expectation is to take the choir to new heights. Every Musical Director has a different approach and different views on where they would like their choir to be. I feel it is important to share these views with you, the choir and audience.

"Full of emotion and excitement!"

 

 

 

Just one of the many favourable comments heard after our Spring Concert at the Catholic Church of Christ the Prince of Peace in Weybridge on Saturday 12 May. A near-capacity audience enjoyed an exciting and varied programme from the choir, with the added bonus from our guest soloists of masterclasses in effortless singing from wonderful young soprano Katie Marshall and inspirational piano playing from Gareth Giles.

The concert culminated in a first concert performance of the Snow Patriol hit  "Run", our video of which has just landed on YouTube HERE.

Mayor's Charity Concert raises £3,600

Around 200 local singers and musicians joined forces on Friday 6th April to help raise in excess of £3600 for the Mayor of Elmbridge’s chosen charity, Cobham-based Oasis Children’s Charity.
Weybridge Male Voice Choir, Elmbridge Choir, and the 1st Claygate Scout and Guide Band, performed to a full and appreciative audience at ACS Cobham International School at a concert organised by the Mayor of Elmbridge, Councillor Rachael Lake.
‘It was a fantastic evening – fun and entertaining and we all enjoyed every moment,’ says Rachael. ‘Both choirs and the band performed brilliantly, complementing each other in their own unique style. I am delighted that we raised such an amazing amount for my charity and I would like to thank ACS Cobham for hosting the event, as well as the organisers and performers for giving up their time to support me.’
