The celebrations continued at the Mothers Union meeting on October 30th where there was more cake and more celebrations.

The culmination of months of rehearsals came with 3 nights of Joseph and his amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat in a packed church. It was great fun brining together a cast of different ages and various experiences of public singing !

Voices in Harmony meet every Monday at St John's Church Hall at 5.45 pm. New members are welcome no audition required.
Choir members are rehearsing new pieces for their Annual Carol Concert Monday 15 December 2014.
This year will certainly be a 'friends and family' evening. Two excellent artistes have been engaged for the evening. International Violinist Clive Dobbins accompanied by a very proud sister Julie Dobbins our choir accompanist. Andrew Matthews (Baritone) winner of the Baritone solo and Blue Ribband at this year's National Eisteddfod at Llanelli. Andrew is a friend and past pupil of Nigel Hopkins our choir Musical Director. Our friend John Davies (organist) will once again join the choir for an evening of seasonal music and song.
This will certainly be an occasion for all the family with the young musicians of Penclawdd Junior Band accompanying tradition carols and Christmas music.
Tickets will be available in early November. This concert is usually SOLD OUT. To avoid disappointment please put your order in NOW to choir members !!

There was a really good fundraising night for the Joseph production held in the Conservative club. It was wonderfully organised by Joan Lewis, and included a buffet, and entertainment from the Penclawdd Junior Band, the Neath Eukele Band, Martin Bell (the organist of St Catherine's Gorseinon) and Carys Parry-Jones who sang and acted as Compere for the evening.
Thanks to all who took part and all who supported the event !
