Listen to Trelawney now and we hope to see you on Monday!

. . . and make more than 50 new friends in an instant.


It’s easy. Just come along to St Andrew’s on a Monday evening, introduce yourself, and we’ll get you to sing along with us as we practise. Or just listen to start with, if you prefer.


You will be placed in one of our four sections: Top Tenor; Second Tenor; Baritone; or Bass, depending on the range of your voice. If you know where you should be, that’s fine, but if you are unsure we’ll help you decide. You can always change later if necessary. Whatever the song, everyone in your section sings the same part together, so you will have a dozen or more members to help you.

You won’t be expected to sing in concerts until you – and we – think you are ready. But you will be able to do everything else. Such as benefit from the expert tuition of our Music Director Graham Willcocks and his Assistant, Matthew Fox; join us for a pint afterwards at the Fountain Inn; attend our popular concert ‘afterglows’; take part in our other social events; and receive our regular newsletter.

You don’t have to be able to read music - at least half the Choir can’t! We learn all our pieces by heart so that we can sing anywhere, including in the pub after concerts and practices.


We practise every Monday evening, except Bank holidays, in St Andrews Church in Mevagissey, from 7.30 pm to 9.30 pm.


Apart, that is, from August when, every Monday evening you will find us singing to the holidaymakers on Mevagissey quayside.


So, either just turn up on a Monday evening, or contact any of the officers on our <Contacts> page for more information. We are all happy to talk!


Come on in - singing is fun - and it’s even good for your health. See how long we’ve lasted!

“There are plenty of younger members, and several side-groups, from quartets to shanty groups, so there's something for everyone.

Some quotes from newer members  . .

Still hesitant? Then step beyond ‘sound bites’ and read this:

I joined the choir almost one year ago. I had no previous choir experience but I enjoyed singing. My honest reflection today is that I should have done it many years ago. My thinking in the past was that I will try a choir one day, when I have more time on my hands.

I realise now that the whole experience of meeting new friends, of taking part in the learning process and of being part of a team who support one another, is something that would have enhanced my busy working life and not as I thought, disrupted it.
