Where is Dunvant?
Dunvant is a small village situated some five miles west of Swansea on the South coast of Wales, close to Gower, Britains first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
In spite of its siIze it has boasted one of the finest choirs and one of the finest rugby clubs in Wales.
Dunvant Male Choir pursues the philosophy that music, above all else, is a communicable happiness, and although local surnames dominate, local pride supports and nurtures it. The singing like all great Welsh choirs excels with adrenaline flowing free, be it in the polyphonic intricacies of Benjamin Britten or the compelling surge of the great Welsh Hymns.
Music is a language enjoyed by all people at all levels.
Congratulations to Tererce Morgan who has been honoured by the choir after 50 years of membership. Terry has been Chairman, Vice-Chairman, Committeeman, Life Member and Chorister and has also been honoured by our brother choir in Essen. "Dyfnant trwy gydol". Colin Jones has also been awarded Life Membership.
New Voices Now is a great time to join the choir, along with around ten new choristers as they go through the learning process, you won't be on your own!
BEST WISHES go to the formation and success of "Only Swansea Boys Aloud", a local branch of the Only Boys Aloud choral initiative. Dan Phillips and Wyn Davies will lead the local group, open to boys between 14 and 19 every Thursday between 6.30 and 8.30 pm at the National Waterside Museum, Swansea.
