Press Release                                                               30 March 2005 

MEET THE ORPHEUS
 

The Morriston Orpheus Choir is holding an unique event at Mumbles, Swansea on 7th April in presenting itself to local people in an informal way.  The event will also provide an opportunity for new people to join the choir.  The male choir’s new Musical Director, Sian Pearce said “we always expect people to come to see us, to attend our concerts etc, and they do so in large numbers.  But this time we’re going out to them, to tell them what the choir is like ‘behind the scenes’ and to let them hear the range of our repertoire. We also want to give them an opportunity to sing with us and it will be a very good opportunity for aspiring choristers to see what it’s like to sing with the Orpheus and to join the choir”.

The event, which takes place at the SA3 Club (British Legion) at Mumbles on Thursday 7th April, starts at 8pm.  There will be a presentation and video about the choir, outlining what life in the Orpheus is like, with details of rehearsals, concerts, foreign tours etc.  There will be a mini-concert by the choir which will demonstrate their wide and entertaining repertoire.  Then the audience will have an opportunity to join in the singing as Sian conducts a public ‘rehearsal’.  There will be a recruitment stand where interested people can discuss joining the choir.

The event will round off with a social evening, when audience and choir will be able to mix informally over drinks, and no doubt the songs will continue!

Choir Recruiting Officer, Brian Davies said “No doubt the hall will resound to the sound of hymns and arias, especially to celebrate the great achievement of Mike Ruddock and the Welsh team in winning the Grand Slam for Wales.  We hope that many local people will come to enjoy the unique ‘Orpheus Experience’ and that some of them will take the opportunity of joining the choir! We have a wide range of ages in the choir and all are welcome.”
