Mevagissey Male Choir
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.
In October we undertake our ninth overseas trip, to Cyprus, where we will sing with local Military Wives Choirs. Before that, this summer we will be performing all around Cornwall, including on the Mevagissey quayside throughout August. Please <click> to download our full concert schedule.
If you can’t wait, and you’re in Mevagissey on a Monday, 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 -
Our busy summer is now well under way, with a spectacular evening at Porthcurno’s Minack Theatre, in front of a packed audience, on Saturday 14th May, followed by a rousing performance at St Michael’s Church in Newquay on Saturday 21 st May, where we were raising funds for the RNLI.
Thank you to everyone who supported us at either or both events, and to the Culdrose Military Wives Choir, our wonderful guests at the Minack, and Rosemary Turner and Maggie Holden, who enchanted us with their beautiful singing in Newquay. Who will forget Summertime with that smouldering fiery sunset?
Our next concert is at the Holsworthy Theatre, where we will be performing for the HATS Charity from 7.30pm on Saturday 11 th June. Tickets are already available from the HATS Box Office at £8 each. http://www.holsworthytheatre.co.uk/index.php . More details on our Engagements page.
Before then, at 3pm, on Saturday 4 th June, we will be taking part in the ‘Blessing of the Fleet’ in
Plymouth Guildhall with Plymouth Military Wives
The Minack Theatre
The 40th Anniversary concert at the Eden Project

“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 . . .”
“On my first visit to Mevagissey, I heard of your choir, attended a performance and heard the angels sing. I've heard other choirs, but truly, you're the best.”
“I have been listening to the choir since the ‘80s. It really relaxes me and helps me chill out on our holiday.”
“The Mevagissey Male Voice choir are not like other choirs …. they all have the most amazing voices and when put together come up with lovely harmonies.”
Judy Ward, Cornish & Devon Post, Penstowe Park
