From the Heart of Pembrokeshire - Celebrating
over 40 successful years
Founded in 1975, Tenby Male Choir has, over the past 40 years, grown from strength to strength not just in chorister numbers but also in it's musical reputation under the guiding light of our Music Director Ian Williams [affectionately know as "Wilbur"] and our accompanist Jill Williams [no relation]. Today, as a well-established Male Voice Choir in West Wales, at nearly 50 choristers strong, the choir prides itself on the professional reputation it has earned "From the heart of Pembrokeshire".
Mae? Or if you're from the other side of Offa's Dyke (or
beyond) its a friendly way of asking how you are. It is my
pleasure to address you as the Chairman of Tenby Male Choir.
Tenby’s acclaimed Male Choir has raised many thousands of pounds for charities and worthy causes in its 40-year history. Such is the standing of the choir, which has toured widely in Britain and on the Continent, thatit is one of only four organisations that have the right to use Tenby’s coat of arms.
The choir holds concerts from March to October each year aiming to raise between £18,000 and £20,000 for local and national charities.

The choir is run on a "not-for-profit" basis but takes several thousand pounds each year to run. As such we rely on raising funds through singing and through donations from generous benefactors. If you would like to support the choir you can make a donation securely online using PayPal or your credit card. Any donation of any amount is very gratefully received

Message from Clr Paul Rapi - Previous Mayor of Tenby
Tenby, a small picturesque town in South Pembrokeshire, is not only a tourist town but an enthusiastic community spirited town. One of the superior community organisations in my opinion, is of course, Tenby Male Choir, who in their 40 years of existence have carried the name of Tenby far and wide. The choir are tremendous ambassadors for the town, and this has been recognised by virtue of the fact that it is one of only four organisations granted the use of the town’s Coat of Arms by the Town Council. The choir has also recently been honoured by the Mayor and Town Council with a certificate acknowledging its service to the community.
I congratulate Tenby Male Choir on the occasion of their 40th Anniversary and send the good wishes of the Town Council and the towns people of Tenby. Councillor Paul Rapi - Previous Mayor of Tenby

It takes a significant amount of funding to operate the choir each year; funds raised by our own concert performances, sales of CD's and donations made by new and existing patrons all help to keep us solvent.
Every year we aim to raise between £18,000-£20,000 for local and national charities and good causes - an achievement of which we are justly proud - through an exhausting concert programme of over 30 concerts from March to November each year - a far bigger programme than most choirs and a major commitment from choristers who sing voluntarily

Interested in joining the choir?
We currently have vacancies in most choir sections. Don't worry if you've not sung in a choir before or can't read music - you don't even have to be welsh-speaking either [although these do help]. As long as you can sing in tune, you could be a useful asset - we'll help with the rest through training and rehearsal
Working hard in concert and rehearsal, we also have fun with a beer afterwards and the camaraderie you'd expect from a group of like-minded blokes whilst helping raise money to very worthwhile charities and causes
