Festive fun!
Sydney Welsh Choir combined with the City of Holroyd Brass Band on Friday, December 15th to present a line-up of Celtic-influenced Christmas favourites. There were Welsh versions of "Silent Night" and "Deck the Hall", as well as the dramatic "Torches" (complete with torches, pictured above) and a new favourite of the choir, "Anfonaf Angel". More than 400 audience members entered into the spirit of Christmas with "Joy to the world" and other carols, while the band impressed with "Gaelforce" and other pieces. In a surprise treat, our narrator and raconteur Clive Woosnam amused the audience with "A Child's Christmas in Wales".

The Sydney Welsh Choir has more than 80 members, male and female, drawn from all parts of the greater Sydney area.  Since 1978 we have been responsible for putting the Wales into NSW. Not all choir members were born in Wales; some have Welsh family links while others simply like being part of a group which sings with such evident enjoyment and enthusiasm to very appreciative audiences. The concert schedule is busy but enjoyable with around two weekend performances a month. The choir has sung at all the main performance venues in Sydney as well as at such famous overseas venues as York Minster, Canterbury and Winchester Cathedrals in England, the American National Cathedral in the USA, The Madeleine in Paris and Assisi Basilica in Italy. Since 1990 the choir has made six trips back to Wales, with performances in many of the main castles, cathedrals and concert halls there, as well as in many countries along the way.

Practices are held most Wednesday evenings at 7pm at the church hall of Concord Baptist Church, Carrington St, Concord just off Concord Rd near the end of the M4. The Sydney Welsh Choir is always happy to welcome visitors or potential new choristers at its practice sessions.   If you would like to know more please phone 02 9617 0401 or email our president, Rob Horlin, at jrhorlin@optusnet.com.au  for further information.
