Barbara Harris awarded Honorary Life Membership of SWMC

On Sunday 4th December 2016, at the SWMC Christmas party, Barbara Harris was awarded Honorary Life Membership of the Choir.
 
Barbara is a founder member of the Choir, and was part of the very first trip to the USA with the 500-strong composite choir from which CMDC was born. Conductor Barbara, together with her first husband Trevor (a founder member of CMDC) were part of the original Resolven Male Voice Choir. They boasted among their members Terry Thomas (CMDC Chairman 1982-1994), Edryd Evans (CMDC Resolven Group Chairman and now honoured as a Life Member) and Huw Jones (Baritone Marshal on the first tour and with Edryd still an active member of CMDC).
 
Through all the years of CMDC’s existence, Barbara has been to the fore in the Music Team – ably supported by her later partner Peter (would you believe another CMDC Baritone!) until his untimely passing in 2015.
 
Chairman Peter Evans told the members, “It is my privilege to bestow the award, on behalf of the Choir, of Honorary Life Membership of Cor Meibion De Cymru on Mrs Barbara Harris”.
 
Barbara received her award to a standing ovation from the members!
