A packed house at All Saints’ Church, Porthcawl, on May 13 was treated to an evening of music provided by the joint choirs of Porthcawl Male and Whitland Male Choir, wonderfully supported by guest artists Rhian Thomas and Kath Lewis.

Whitland started proceedings with a rendition of ‘Anthem’ from Chess. This was followed by a number of Welsh numbers and culminated in a rousing edition of ’Men of Harlech’.

Porthcawl Choir began with ’You Make Me Feel So Young’ and followed with songs from Les Miserables ’Bring Him Home’ and I Dreamed a Dream’.

Between the performances of the two choirs, the audience listened to Rhian Thomas accompanied on the harp by Kath Lewis. They played songs from the musicals, including a medley of Gershwin songs and a number from a new musical Ghost.

After the interval, both choirs performed again, with Whitland singing ’World in Union’ and Porthcawl performing ’O Gymru’, and a German drinking song entitled ’Aus die Traube in die Tonne’.

The evening’s entertainment culminated with both choirs coming together to raise the roof with ’Gwahoddiad’.

Porthcawl Male Choir is looking forward to a very busy period with their tour to Torquay and another joint concert with Tamar Valley Male Choir.

This will be followed by a concert in Lydbrook in the Forest of Dean.
