Cavatina Singers Penarth
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.
The choir performs a range of music both Classical and Contemporary and has recently completed a collaborative project through the 'Composer in Residence' scheme funded by Tŷ Cerdd: Ian Lawson, a local composer, wrote a little jazz mass 'Missa Brevis' for Cavatina Singers and Stanwell Comprehensive School Choir, which we performed together at its premier on November 20th 2018.
Throughout the year the choir perform themed concerts, with music drawn from a range of traditional and contemporary composers, as well as a few popular songs.
We celebrate Christmas at a number of venues with carols from the 100 Carols for Choirs along with other contemporary seasonal music.
In the Spring of 2019 we held a Come and Sing event, performing Handel's Coronation Anthems with the wonderful Adastri Ensemble and 35 visiting singers .
Our Summer 'Cream Tea' concert this year celebrated French music, including Les Miserable favorites 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.
