'Promotes chamber music concerts in venues in the Wye Valley ...  It showcases promising students and supports artists launching their careers, but most of our events will be performed by world-class musicians on their way to a world-class career. Some will already have arrived. We choose our venues mainly on the basis of their kind acoustic qualities for the types of music we present ... Run on a shoestring by a small group of volunteers, we could do more and better if we had more helpers willing to spend a few hours a week on interesting, worthwhile projects.'

'Founded in 1981 by a local GP David Hiley who persuaded any of his patients who said they could sing to join him in creating a choir. From this small group, many of whom are still members, a strong society of some 50 to 60 singers has evolved ... As well as a major Choral Concert in November, the choir organises a community Carol Concert in Crickhowell where local primary school pupils perform along with other young people from the town and the audience is expected to join in too. We see the involvement of young music makers in our activities as essential to the future of the choir ...'

'A close-harmony male voice choir – the only such choir in South Wales. We differ from a traditional male voice choir in our approach, our choice of songs, our sound. We sing “a-capella” (unaccompanied), producing truly beautiful music ... We sing a range of songs from ballads, pop, swing to laugh-out-loud ... We love what we do – we’re infectious!'

So we have a part time team who are here to help you. Not only do we aim to provide an interesting range of shows, we are also available to hire for those groups seeking a professional venue for their production.'
