        70th Anniversary 2016


Concert

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!


Media Exposure

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!
