Happy Birthday Choirs For Good

If you weren’t at the first birthday celebrations for Choirs For Good at Haverhub, Haverfordwest, on the 28 March, you missed a great night. The choir, who usually meet there on a Tuesday to learn new songs and enjoy old ones, were out in full force treating us to a fab evening.

Tom Dyer, choirmaster for the group, said: “You are all superstars and I can’t believe how many prizes and how much food there was to go around – homemade food at that! It was great to see everyone pitching in and making the night a success.”

And it was. A table groaning with food and another with raffle prizes were an additional treat for all of those who turned up to be entertained.

Songs such as Brown Eyed Girl, Real Love, Move On Up, Hi Ho Silver Lining and Time after Time had us buzzing or shedding a quiet tear to some truly lovely harmonies.

As if that wasn’t enough. We were also treated to some songs from the lovely Kelly Jackson, a singer with experience entertaining crowds at Bluestone and recently at the Big Pembs Panto in Milford Haven.

The evening raised £106 which will go toward Wales Air Ambulance, Choirs For Good charity of the year, and attracted quite a few more interested recruits who will be coming along to the Tuesday sessions at Haverhub from 7.30pm.

Choirs For Good was set up by a group of like-minded choir leaders who wanted to use the power of group singing to connect and empower people and communities. You really don’t need to have any previous musical experience to join their choirs. There are no auditions and no pressure. Choirs for Good are a great place to make new friends and learn new skills.

Tom said: “Your first session is completely free and we welcome new members all year round. We hope to see you at a rehearsal soon.”
