Congratulations to these fine musical ambassadors on the 40th Anniversary of the Choir. It is my privilege to be the
So, to the Choir. Founded, in an inspiring move, in 1975 by Graham Stubbs, the original MD, with his wife, Pat, as accompanist. It has been a cornerstone of culture in this part of Wales, singing in praise and entertainment for the common good. Prolific raisers of charity money for good causes, in an average of 30 concerts a year, avid promoters of
local young musicians and purveyors of goodwill, where ever they travel or whoever they host. Recently, they lit the welcome fire for the Australia Welsh Male Voice Choir.
It was a few weeks ago, that I had the pleasure of featuring Tenby Male Choir, in the Choir slot on my weekly BBC Radio Wales programme on a Sunday morning.
Soon, these ambassadors will be off to Malta, yet again carrying the Red Dragon of Wales and the flag of St. David to distant horizons. I wish them safety and success. They have flown the flag in so many countries. Once, Elaine and I nearly accompanied the Choir to Romania. In fact, we even made it as far as the aircraft seat, but we didn’t get off the ground. Therein lies tale of drama that has filled many an ‘after dinner’ conversation and talking point.
