HOT HOT HOT!

So on the Hottest day of the year so far the choir was out singing at Yate Shopping Centre for Southmead Hospital “Buskathon” event.

The event tent was too small to shade the choir so we were able to sing under a nearby shop canopy.

Thirsty work singing when people are walking past drinking cold drinks and eating ice creams. Oh yes and we will never forget the strawberry seller trying to out do us all performance with "Strawberries get your strawberries here only £1" they were nice though

Keep on Running

Well into the second half of the London Marathon Graham Lemin (B1) was really starting to struggle, until he was offered a HARIBO!! with renewed energy he was able to sprint off eventually finishing in 5 hours 58 mins and raising £2000 for Amnesty International. Graham said he is going to run a half marathon in the autumn……. Better get stocked up on the HARIBO’S Graham.

Cornish International Male Voice Choir Festival 2019, has to be one of the longest competition names on record! Having said that it does claim to be the biggest festival of it kind in the world with male choirs from all over the world.
BMVC had a great weekend staying in Newquay and traveling to various venues to give joint concerts with other choirs.
We took part in the 40 and under category and came a respectable joint 6th out of 17, not bad considering some of the choirs were semi-professional.

Stefan Williams (T2) taking part on Channel 4's Countdown on March 15.
Well done Stef but you cant use 'Welsh' words on Countdown!
Good try on the maths though!
The Choirs 50th Anniversary Year finished up on Friday March 1 in style with a concert at Saltford Village Hall in aid of the Brittish Heart Foundation. With a programme that spanned the years and a very appreciative audience the Choir was able to demonstrate its versatility. One of the Highlights of the evening was the premier of The Choirs new song ‘For The Fallen’ written and arranged by our own Jo Scullin while the Brittish Legion standard bearer lowered the flag in remembrance.
Thanks to all who made the evening a great success.Sorry no photos
