We can provide music for a range of audiences and occasions and our concert programme ranges from Welsh songs and hymns to music from the musicals Additionally, our concerts can also include soloists, small groups and comedy sketches.
If you are interested in booking us to entertain you or your organisation, for anything from a concert to a charity fundraising event, then please contact us .
For functions, fees are negotiated, but when proceeds raised from a concert go to a charity we simply charge a fee of £65 to cover our expenses (unless transport is needed for concerts further afield). Incidentally, the choir has raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for charities.
