Open Evening at CMC
Whether you have sung with a choir before, or are a novice -come and sing with us! Our evening aims to be a workshop session, so all members of the choir and prospective members will learn new music for the first time. Every member is on the same page, all learning something new together.
If you’d like more information, the why not email us or drop us a line. We look forward to meeting some new members on April the 13th! If you would like to join the choir and are keen to start before April, then let us know and we will arrange for a chorister to meet you at the door.

St David’s Day Celebration Choir Raises The Village Hall Roof!
Turn out again was great! For the second year running, Graig and Penllyn welcomed the Cardiff Male Choir to its St David’s Day Celebration Event held in the village hall on Saturday 27th February. The aim of the event was again to give a village focus for recognizing St David’s Day – a tradition that should not be lost. It was also an opportunity for people to get together and enjoy an evening of traditional entertainment in our re-furbished Village Hall and to raise funds.
The evening was made possible by the Penllyn & Craig Penllyn Village committee team who are always looking for a “helping hand” and for people to get involved. As with all fund-raising activities, the event was only made possible by the ever-needed support from residents and friends including those that gave generous donations.
The biggest thanks for the evening goes to Cardiff Male Choir, who donated their time and effort free-of-charge. The hosts made sure they were given a very warm welcome. Founded in 1898, the Cardiff Male Choir is one of the oldest choirs in South Wales and was conducted by its Musical Director, Mrs Emma Laidlaw-Height. Emma explained how the choir support fund-raising activities and how they even make a point of visiting care homes during the early part of the year.
We were treated to a variety of songs, ranging from Welsh favorites and folk songs to ballads and 60’s memories. Their rendition of “Luck Be A Lady” – featured in the musical Guys and Dolls – set the scene for a superbly well-supported raffle.
So the outcome of the evening was a great success, contributing to enhancing and maintaining our village amenities for all residents and visitors.
Thanks to all volunteers again, Penllyn & Craig Penllyn Village committee
