City of the Unexpected
Many members of our choir participated in Cardiff’s two-day Roald Dahl centenary event on the 17th and 18th of September, as members of a huge massed choir. Below is an acknowledgement from David Mahoney, conductor.
Gabalfa Community Choir was founded in 2010, initially comprising members from St. Mark’s Church, Gabalfa, Cardiff. We have made great progress since the beginning of 2013, and we now have over 60 members in our mixed-voice choir, and they come from all parts of Cardiff and beyond. Members are of all ages and come from all walks of life. We are all united by one thing, though – a love of singing! The ethos of the choir is simple – it doesn’t matter whether or not you can sing well, or read music, you can still join with us and sing your heart out! There are no auditions and nothing to make a newcomer uncomfortable. We are here to make friends and to enjoy singing.
The main aim of our choir is to make friends and to make music. We encourage people who would not normally sing to experience the enjoyment of singing in a choir.
The health and psychological benefits of singing are well documented, and we love to encourage people who don’t normally sing to come along and experience the camaraderie and companionship that comes with belonging to a group, as well as the sheer joy of singing with others.
Under the direction of our new leader, Justine, and accompanied by the incredibly talented Phil, we will be learning a varied repertoire. We perform twice a year, once at Christmas and again at the end of the summer term.
We hope to see you soon!
