Saturday 12th October (7.30pm) will see the return of the Pendyrus Male Choir to present what has become their annual concert at King’s Church Amersham, Raans Road. The internationally acclaimed choir, with over one hundred members, have performed in thirteen different countries and on four continents, singing on stages ranging from the Principality Stadium, home of Welsh rugby, to the Kremlin and The White House. They won first place for the fifth time at this year’s Cardigan Semi National Eisteddfod and will be competing with 15 other choirs at the National Eisteddfod in Llanwrst in August.
“An ensemble of male voices it would be difficult to match anywhere in the world”
Sunday Times, Perth
“One of the most widely-acclaimed of Welsh choruses, who demonstrate at once their versatility and care for cleanly balanced ensemble”
Daily Telegraph, London
“An outstanding exponent of the choral tradition of Wales”
“A technical wonder in such matters as producing fullness of sound and absolutely dazzling diction”
San Francisco Chronicle
Given their reputation and the popularity of past performances here in Amersham, we anticipate another full house, so grab your tickets as soon as they become available on the 1st September. The choir typically present traditional Welsh choral pieces alongside more contemporary songs but all performed with their own inimitable style and panache. Proceeds from the concert will once again be raising funds for Every Life International, a Buckinghamshire-based Christian NGO who work with disadvantaged communities worldwide.
Now ten years old, the charity was founded by locals Simon and Nicola Neal, who felt called to Uganda to work with poorest of the poor in slum communities around Kampala. Every Life now works in three East African countries as well as at home in the UK in some of the most deprived areas of London. As their name suggests, the organisation work from the assurance that every person has God-given potential, whatever their background or situation. Although the challenges, pain and hardships of life often serve to obscure or hinder that potential, Every Life work with the belief that through caring for and valuing individuals and building up family and community, whole neighbourhoods can be transformed for the long-term. So, don’t miss the opportunity for a superb evening’s entertainment and the chance to support a good cause into the bargain.
