We were delighted to present to Rowcroft Hospice at our first rehearsal this term the amazing amount of £2000 raised at our ‘Sounds of Summer 2018’ concert. We had dedicated the concert to Ronnie our friend and former choir member who sadly passed away earlier this year and we feel we did her proud!
This set our first rehearsal of the term off to a terrific start. We have some great new songs this term and some new members. We still have spaces for altos and men, so don’t be shy, come and join us! We rehearse on Monday evenings, starting at 7.30pm at Marldon Primary School.
What a fantastic evening we had on 30th June at Central Church, Torquay! We sang our hearts out to a very appreciative audience. Thanks to Tom Morris who enchanted us with his wonderful solo singing, and to Voicemale for their lovely sonorous barbershop harmonies. We raised well over our target of a thousand pounds for Rowcroft Hospice, the final amount will be revealed when we present our cheque to the Hospice team. Many thanks to everyone who made this such a memorable evening.
Our next performance will be ‘Sounds of Summer 2018’ concert to be held at Central Church, Torquay, on 30th June at 7.30pm where we will be singing a variety of well-known popular music.

Marldon Community Choir is delighted to be presenting a cheque for £1200 to Rowcroft Hospice.
This money was raised at the Choir’s ‘Sounds of Summer 2017’ concert held at St John’s Church, Totnes in July. The concert was directed by Kathy Snow and accompanied by Wyn Turner on the piano. It was compered by Phil Burford and guest appearances were made by Lewis Cudmore, who is currently studying at Laine Theatre Arts, and the barbershop group, ‘Voicemale’. The evening was a great success and greatly enjoyed by both performers and audience.

Further events are planned for the coming year and more information about these and about joining the Choir can be found here on the website
In an effort to get a few images for the website we held a photo-shoot the other night. Carlo brought his camera and we all fell under the gaze of the paparazzi lens! At least we all know what it would be like now if we became famous. Now did he get my best side?!
