Following a difficult two years for everyone, the Achord family are extremely excited to be hosting the Aber Valley Male Voice Choir from South Wales in September.
Aber Valley Male Voice Choir was founded in 1959 and is one of Wales’s busiest voice choirs. They are based in Senghenydd, Caerphilly yet they travel far and wide, performing both traditional and contemporary repertoire. Conductor John Geraint Evans has been the Musical Director for 50 years, with Accompanist Aurelia Jones giving 40 years’ service to the choir.
Achord Community Choir are really pleased to be able to host Aber Vallley after a period of isolation where all rehearsing had to be done behind an iPad – it is amazing to be back together singing as a choir, and even better to be able to join forces with the Aber Valley boys.
We are giving two formal performances during the week the boys are here, as follows:
Friday 23rd September: Pissouri Amphitheatre: 7.00pm (Tickets €10)
Sunday 25th September: St Georgio Restaurant, Paphos: 4.00pm (Tickets €10 / Buffet €10)
We are extremely fortunate to be able to welcome the talented Charr Anne Smith to perform with us at the Pissouri concert. Charr first performed with Achord back in May this year and we were blown away by the sheer power in her voice and her ability to react with the audience. Charr, based in Paphos, is trained in musical theatre and has an absolutely amazing voice. We are delighted to be welcoming her to perform alongside us once again.
Wales is known as the land of song. There is nothing better than the full, rich, sound of a Welsh Male Voice Choir – put that together with the combined voices of Achord Community Choir for the rousing joint renditions of Calon Ian, Tydi a Roddaist, World in Union and Monte Criste – wow! We at Achord can’t wait to perform with the gents of Aber Valley.
Aber Valley’s motto is “have song, will travel”. Well, we are really excited that they are bringing their wealth of repertoire and experience as they travel to Cyprus to entertain us.
If you would like to reserve tickets for either of the above concerts, please do so by using the details below. Also, if you would like to join us for a post-concert Buffet at St Giorgio’s on the Sunday, please let us know when you book your tickets.
We look forward to welcoming you to one of these performances – it is something not to be missed! Having done this with 3 previous male voice choirs, you really won’t be disappointed! Dewch I ymuno a ni noson wych o ganu gyda Cor Meibion Aber Valley!
