Mevagissey Male Choir

Founded 1974

One of Cornwall’s finest male choirs

We are now in our 42nd year, and have performed well over 1,000 concerts. We believe this success is testimony to our willingness to embrace all genres of music, and to take on ever more challenging pieces, without sacrificing quality. Our overarching philosophy is to entertain.

Earlier this summer, we were joined by the Culdrose Military Wives Choir for a spectacular evening at Porthcurno’s Minack Theatre, and have recently enjoyed successful concerts at St Michael’s Church in Newquay, Holsworthy Theatre, St Peter’s Church, Noss Mayo and Mevagissey’s traditional Feast Week.

If you can’t wait, and you’re in Mevagissey on a Monday (apart from August), why not pop into St Andrew’s at 7.30pm and hear us practise? You’ll be made very welcome! If you’re male, you may even like to join us - and make 50 new friends in an instant! If so, click here, or contact Graham Rundle on 07799 512295, or any officer here. If you’re female, or just like to listen, simply relax with one of our five CDs, which you can order here.

Think male choirs are old-fashioned and predictable?

Wait ‘til you hear the Mevagissey Male Choir, one of Cornwall’s most accomplished and adventurous. Come and see us in Penzance, with the Penzance Orpheus Choir, on Sunday 17 th July, or in St Enoder, near Newquay, on Saturday 23 rd July.

And If you’re in Cornwall in August, we’ll be singing on the Mevagissey quayside every Monday evening. That’s the 1st , 8th , 15th , 22nd and 29th August! On September 10th , we’ll be appearing at Truro’s Hall for Cornwall alongside the chart-topping Plymouth Military Wives Choir – where hopefully we’ll have our new Christmas CDs for sale! - While, in October, we undertake our ninth overseas trip, to Cyprus, where we will sing with local Military Wives ChoirsFull details of all our engagements can be found here.

Our busy summer is now well under way; a spectacular evening at Porthcurno’s Minack Theatre, in front of a packed audience, on Saturday 14th May, was followed by rousing performances at St Michael’s Church in Newquay on Saturday 21 st May, where we were raising funds for the RNLI, and to a full-house at Holsworthy Theatre on Saturday 11th June, in support of the HATS Charity. Thank you to everyone who supported us at these events.

“I do have a weakness for the sound of male voice choirs, and Mevagissey did not disappoint. They performed such a wide repertoire that there was literally something for everyone . . .”
