Singing is our delight but there's so much more!
By Popular Demand Choir returns to Marshfield
Experience Magical Moments in Marshfield,
21 June, 2014
From the hills near Bath and close to
Marshfield, it may be possible on tip-toe to see the Land of Song: Marshfield will become a musical part of Wales for a good number of hours.
The sound of the choir will be once again Bred in Heaven to the local followers and exiles alike in Saint Mary’s Church.
When in foreign climbs, as a nation, we tend to show our geographic, social, intellectual, even spiritual roots.
There is nothing like a good funeral, a wonderful wedding or a great concert. Mostly Welsh, we sing, not lustfully, but tunefully and there can’t be too many
nations whose musicians complete their concert by entertaining the audience with such passionate hymn singing.
Welcome from our President John Dawes O.B.E
WELSH RUGBY CLUB CHOIR is a choir with a passion to perform and proud
to be singing. Teamwork is central to my philosophy and to that of the
choir and this choir extends a warm welcome to potential choristers who
would like to join an exciting team.
The London Welsh Rugby Club Choir is honoured to have this rugby legend as its President. John appeared with the choir on the British and Irish Lions Tour to New Zealand, and his presence and participation opened many doors to the All Blacks rugby world for the choir.
Throughout our history we have set out to entertain audiences and raise funds for charities whilst enjoying ourselves through singing and the close comradeship that this wonderful pastime brings. We perform in public, mostly to support organisations in their fund-raising activities. It is more than the music, however, that keeps the choir together, with singers, their families and supporters enjoying a range of social activities. We are a much-travelled choir and believe that getting away together not only improves our singing but also fosters unity and fellowship in what we like to think of as one big family as well as a choir. We hope you find our website useful and invite you to look further by using the Navigation Pane above.
Perhaps you'll consider: booking the choir.
The choir will be glad to lend a hand.
Singing with the choir - come to our next rehearsal where you can buy a CD and listening to the choir in your own time
Veteran Don May
leads the Choir Tribute
to honour Welsh Servicemen in Netherlands
London Welsh Rugby Club Choir stalwart, 87 year old Don May, a WWII veteran who served in the Royal Signals laid a wreath on behalf of the choir at the memorial to the 146 young men of the 53rd Welsh Division who died in a week’s fierce fighting in October 1944 liberating the City of 's-Hertogenbosch in southern Holland.
CONGRATULATIONS from CHOIR
It was a memorable occasion in Bristol when a superb London Welsh defence saw off the big spenders Bristol’s onslaught to become the worthy winners of the Green King Championship and gain promotion to the Aviva Premiership. Weather more suited to winter was overcome and London Welsh gained immediate return to the top echelon of English rugby. It was an epic encounter against strong and worthy opponents. The last match at the Memorial Ground was less than memorable for Bristol when late tries by Cook and Stegmann ensured a London Welsh victory and promotion. Llongyfachiadau a da iawn.
