Cavatina Singers Penarth

LATEST NEWS : December 2020

COVID - 19 Activity

Weekly virtual rehearsals via ZOOM are taking place every Tuesday evening at 7:30pm. We have been busy learning a selection of new Winter pieces composed by the choir's Director Alex Thacker and two local composers, Ian Lawson and Ben Heneghan. The aim is to produce, along with other singers from other choirs, a collaborative virtual performance (much like those you may have seen on the television in recent months). Support material is available to help with learning the music and you can choose to do as much or as little as you want. Follow the progress on YouTube with a final concert planned for Monday 21st December at 7.00pm.


About the Choir

A friendly well established four-part SATB choir (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, and Bass) with up to 40 members singing in Penarth for 30+ years. Currently under the direction of a dynamic and supportive Musical Director, Alex Thacker, accompanied by the talented David Butler.

Throughout the year the choir would normally perform themed concerts, with music drawn from a range of traditional and contemporary composers, as well as a few popular songs.

We normally celebrate Christmas at a number of venues with carols from the 100 Carols for Choirs along with other contemporary seasonal music.

During the Summer of 2020 the choir took part in a virtual performance of a piece written by local composer Ian Lawson This has been sent to Making Music as part of their virtual concert series initiative .

Kyrie from Jazz Works - Missa Brevis by Ian Lawson

Our Summer 'Cream Tea' concert in June last 2019 celebrated French music, including Les Miserable favourites and a wonderful selection of solo items from our guest Soprano, Camille Chappuis, a Swiss/French student from the Welsh College of Music . This event is always popular with a relaxed and friendly atmosphere for all to enjoy.

Some musical experience would be an advantage, although it is not essential. As a member of the choir you will have access to support material and a welcoming group of people who just love singing.
