2. Mentor support
When you attend a local rehearsal, you will be assigned a mentor. This experienced chorister will look after you during your early days with the choir. Your mentor will make sure you have the music sheets you need, help you learn your part and offer encouragement throughout.
3. Online Learning Tracks
An invaluable learning tool used by even the most experienced chorister! We have a library of songs which you can listen to at home or download and listen to anywhere! It’s an excellent way to become familiar with your part.
4. Full Rehearsals
Approximately every three weeks, the five local branches of the choir come together to rehearse in the Cwmafan community centre, near Port Talbot. Here you will experience the full power and grace of our choir! Visitors are always welcome!!
See us at our best! Attending a concert will also help a new chorister observe the high standards we set in dress, deportment and discipline.
One of the best ways to experience The South Wales Male Choir is to come on tour with us. We usually travel abroad every other year and new members are always welcome to join us.
UPDATE:- “No fewer than 21 new and potential recruits for the Cardiff Group attended the open rehearsal on Tuesday 20th October. Following an extensive advertising campaign in the preceding weeks, organisers were delighted with the outcome with interested choristers and new-comers to the male voice world travelling in from as far afield as Abergavenny, Cowbridge and Cregiau together with locals from Llandaff and district. With 24 Cardiff CMDC choristers joined by as many from further afield, Group Conductor Jo Herco-Thomas accompanied by Karen Sampson was able to guide the experienced and the ‘not-so-sure’ singers through a variety of pieces from the repertoire.
Culminating in the promised ‘free pint and buffet’ provided by Fairwater Conservative Club, the evening was much enjoyed by all – hats off to organiser and Cardiff Group Chairman Don Surridge!”
