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 50 choristers strong, the choir prides itself on the professional reputation that it has grown "From the Heart of Pembrokeshire".

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
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 –that it is inundated with
requests to hold fund-raising concerts. So it has decided
that, rather than disappoint deserving applicants, it will
sometimes perform joint concerts for like-minded good
causes. This arrangement can also work to the charities’
advantage by encouraging them to combine forces in promoting
the event and sell more tickets between them.

Message from Clr Paul Rapi - Mayor of Tenby 2015
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 - 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
Friends of Tenby Male Choir
Would you like to help your local choir and at the same time enjoy social evenings? The “Friends of Tenby Male choir” is a group which is small in number at the moment but which we hope to build up.
There are always things to do in a choir apart from singing and sometimes the load on singing members to do these extra things is great. They not only have concerts and other engagements but of course have to rehearse as a group and practice at home.
For this reason any sort of help is greatly valued. However, we don’t just want it to be about that we want also to make this a social group who meet to have a bit of fun on a regular basis. Although the group has been around for a long time and has always been valued it has been mainly comprised of the choir members’ wives and partners and is small. It is early days and there are open minds to what we do. There is no commitment if you get in touch but if you think you might like to help and or enjoy just the social part of this then why not contact Allan Keating on 07967 370481 or firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
Consider making a donation to help the choir thrive? You can do so online safe and secure using our PayPal account or your credit card. Simply click the yellow "Donate" button below. Thank you.

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
