Male voice choirs

My wife and I will be staying in Funchal for three months from January 2019.

Are there any male voice choirs in Funchal that I could practice with to keep me ''in tune'' for when I return to the UK in April.

We know of the English church, and that there are lots of ex pats residing in Funchal.

We are also on holiday there for three weeks from late July this year and it would be useful to obtain any information related to the above so that I can visit them.

Many thanks.

John.

I have heard the CCM (Madeira) choir perform in Funchal, they are a mixture of Male and Female singers. This link may be of interest to you.... or they may be able to point you in the direction of a male voice choir etc.,

Ha Ha! Yes Rob, that's me..but its Maidenhead.. I am from the Rhondda Valley in Wales. So, when I hear any choir singing, I just love it. Brought up where the Pendyrus Male Voice Choir practice, its in the blood you know.

Having studied Music, I too love choral work.

Why not call in at the Music Conservatoire (opposite new Savoy Hotel) and some of the staff or students may be able to point in the right direction regarding male voice choirs.

Pam thanks for the link pertaining to the mixed voice choir.

Enjoy your time in Madeira and happy singing.

Hi Pam,

Thanks for the information, I will check them out.

From the land of song are you? no wonder you become nostalgic.

I sing with The Daleian Singers from Newcastle-under-lyme in North Staffordshire, we are a 65 strong MVC, our youngest member is 14, and sings T1, our oldest is 89 and sings bass.

Our most recent success was in 2015, and again in 2016 when we won the Male Voice section in the

Llandudno Music Festival against worldwide competition. Thanks again.
