Following BMVC’s very successful 2019 Christmas concert in St. Helen’s Church last December, the ticket sales proceeds has provided the choir with an opportunity to present Alzheimers Cymru with a donation of £1,100!
The BMVC annual Recruitment Night was held at the West End club on St. Nicholas Road, Barry on January 14th. This a a great relaxed event to be introduced to the choir.

In 2016 BMVC was approached to provide the backing track to an advertisement being created to promote a local brewery – Glamorgan Brewing Co. – who are based in Llantrisant. The advertisement is targeted specifically at web and social media channels so is not expected to be seen on mainstreamTV – the choir sang a song called ‘O Gymru’ (Oh Wales!) which is a beautiful Welsh song about a passionate love for Wales.
To see the advertisement, called ‘Lifeblood’, click here to go to site of Gray Hughes, the agency responsible for creating and producing it.
Please click HERE to a link from a recent article in the Daily Telegraph, that provides more proof, if it was needed, that being an active member of a male voice choir is good for your health and general well-being.
Please click HERE to link to another medical study from Tenovus (published on the Science Daily web site in April 2016) that shows that singing for just one hour causes positive physiological changes in people affected by cancer.
If you have ever thought about joining a male voice choir, or just wondered what we get up to at rehearsals, please feel free to pop along and meet us. There is no pressure to join, and you’ll even get a cup of tea and a biscuit if you are there at our tea break (usually around 8:30).
