St Donats Atlantic Chorale

 

Established in May 2009, the St Donats Atlantic Chorale is a mixed choir of some 50 voices who share the love of music, the joy of singing and the pleasure of good company. Based in St Donats Arts Centre near Llantwit Major in the beautiful Vale of Glamorgan, the choir has gone from strength to strength.

In addition to performing at St Donats Arts Centre– the choir has appeared at the Wales Millennium Centre and Bath Abbey. The St Donats Atlantic Chorale undertook its first overseas tour, visiting Norway in the Summer of 2014.

Repertoire & Rehearsals

 

Singers and audiences can expect a wide repertoire of both well known and less familiar music in a variety of styles and newcomers of all ages with an interest in singing are welcome.

The choir has preformed major works, including Messiah, Creation, Vivaldi's Gloris and the Fauré Requiem, but it also has a wide repertoire of smaller pieces ranging from folksongs and madrigals all the way through to musicals and pop songs.

We rehearse on Monday evenings in the magnificient glass room at the St Donats Arts Centre.

New members are always welcome. There are no auditions so why not come along and give it a try.

Next Performances

 

We'll be singing at the May Day Fair in Cowbridge on May 6th. After that our next public performance is at Bath Abbey, where we'll be singing choral Mattins and Evensong on July 19th. In the meantime we'll be in the studio recording a new CD of music from the lighter end of our repertoire.

 

2015-2016 is already looking busy. We have plane for a performance of Vivaldi's Gloria in November and Bach's dramatic St John Passion in March. There will also be a musical Christmas party so watch this space for dates and places.

 

 

 

Helping hands needed

 

The choir relies heavily on members and audiences to provide the funds necessary to develop and perform a wide-ranging repertoire to suit all tastes.

 

We are extremely grateful for the in-kind support received from St Donats Art Centre, but are always looking for new ways to sustain our on-going commitment to the development of our open ’no audition needed’ community choir .
