Friday 1st March

The choir joined the St. David’s Day celebrations at St. Michael’s Church.

Abertillery Town Band accompanied the community singing and also delighted the audience with an enthusiastic, well played medley of brass band music. Abertillery Male Voice Orpheus Choir performed a good selection of songs from their wide repertoire and Abertillery Youth Drama and Musical Society also sang a range of songs to entertain the audience. One of their singers, Jordan Mills, performed solo pieces and showed huge potential and ability.

Poem for St Davids Day

We have mountains

We have valley,s

We have rivers that run deep

We have hilltops crowned with heather

We have hillsides white with sheep

We have coal mines

We have steelworks

We have castle,s by the score

We have lots of lovely beaches where the waves lap on the shore

We have countryside a plenty, footpaths to walk along

We always have welcome in this the land of song

We have rows of miners house,s

We have towns down by the sea

We have multicultural city,s that are homes to you and me

We have sunshine in the summer, in the winter storms and gales

We have a taste of heaven

In this our land called WALES

Sunday 3rd March

The choir was pleased to be selected as part of the Usk Choral Festival at St. Mary’s Church, in the centre of the town.

The event was very well organised and proved to be a wonderful showcase for the enormous variety of choirs taking part.

The other five choirs in our section consisted of many choristers and they filled the stage when performing their chosen pieces. Although our choir only numbered around twenty, we were complimented for our choice of music and for the quality of our sound.

It was a very uplifting event and was enjoyed by everyone. The festival is a biannual event and we are sure to apply for the next one, in 2026.

Monday 18th March

The choir went to the Bella e Buona Italian Restaurant in Brynmawr for a social evening.

It is a lovely venue with conscientious staff and is praised for the quality of the food it provides. It was great to enjoy a relaxed get together in a very pleasant setting. Several choristers suggested going there again, in the near future. Thanks must be given to Sian Jones for organising the event, it was a most enjoyable evening.
