70th Anniversary 2016
In October we held a special anniversary concert at Queens Road Baptist Church where we were joined by The World Song Choir. The ‘afterglow’ was held in the Ramada hotel, where we were presented with a suitably iced cake which was quickly demolished by choir members and supporters of the choir!
The choir featured on both radio and TV. We were invited to attend the studios of C&W radio where we sang several numbers and certain choristers together with our MD were interviewed.
A few weeks later we appeared on television in the Regional News on BBC1

Joining The Choir - poem by Brian Todd
We are the City Of Coventry Male Voice Choir
We sing with soul from the heart
For 70 years we’ve performed many songs
And would love some more men to take part
From opera to pop and songs from the shows
Plus traditional male voice numbers
When we open up there’s a sure guarantee
That nobody suffers the slumbers
We’ve two lots of tenors, baritone and bass
As we blend in pure sweet harmony
It’s not difficult you know, just give it try
You’ll soon get the hang and you’ll see
Sally our director waving her arms
Whilst Danny will tickle the ivory
We open our throats and hit the right notes
That is our top pri- or-ity
We’re just ordinary chaps from all walks of life
Who meet on a Wednesday for cheer
We’ve no prima donnas, we’re just a great choir
We’re the best hereabouts what we hear
Listen you lads who sing in the shower
The bath or even the loo
We want you to join us to raise up your voice
And blend with our wonderful crew
So come on and meet us at the Church where we sing
It’s where Methodists gather to pray
At Woodside Avenue is the spot on the map
Come and join in the fun each Wed-nes-day!
