Past Events

Neath Male Voice 

The Neath Male Voice Choir has been twinned with Tamworth Ladies’ Choir since 1996. Since then numerous joint concerts have been staged both in South Wales and here in Tamworth. We had the pleasure of welcoming this wonderful choir to Tamworth for a joint concert on 14th July 2018

Treverva Male Voice Choir

The Tamworth Ladies’ Choir were also invited to sing with the the award-winning Treverva Male Voice Choir from Cornwall.

Recently Treverva Male Voice Choir made a visit to Tamworth with an outstanding performance in St. Editha’s Parish Church. The Ladies’ Choir visited Falmouth again on 30th April- 2nd May 2016 and sang in another very successful concert with Treverva MV Choir.      

The Treverva Choir planned visit to us scheduled for May 2019 has had to be cancelled due to difficulties in finding a suitable accompanist to replace their regular and long standing one who is unavailable.

Culdrose Military Wives Choir 

Whilst in Cornwall  30th April -2nd May 2016, for their concert with the Treverva Male Voice Choir the Tamworth Ladies’ Choir were fortunate enough to be able to have a concert with the Culdrose Military Wives Choir in Helston. This was a concert to remember!! The finale was sung by both choirs and was the Military Wives Prayer the very poignant “Wherever you Are” which when released was the second fastest selling single ever. Watch and listen to this link to YouTube to hear this special song:

This has now been uploaded to YouTube. For our new accompanist Hannah, this was her first concert with us and together with our super MD, Gail Brindley, she held it all together. The weekend was a great success, helped by very good weather.
