MONMOUTHSHIRE and NEWPORT COMMUNITY CHOIRS were set up by Gwent Music to provide a choir for adults to access in the community.
MCC is now a mixed soprano; alto; tenor bass choir with 35 members. The Newport Community Choir is also a mixed choir with 20 members. Both choirs sing a range of musical genres including pop, classical and traditional songs performing regularly together, their last combined concert being at St Basil’s Church Bassaleg.
They perform at Gwent Music’s showcase concerts, most recently in St David’s Hall Cardiff and were privileged to be part of BBC1’s One Show with Richard Mainwaring, recording Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody, at Rockfield Studios in Monmouth.
Always looking for new members of wide ages and ability since the choir has a range of absolute beginners to more experienced choristers aged between late teens and beyond! There is a belief that singing should be fun and the feel-good factor is there for the taking!
