‘CAOS has been entertaining the Vale of Glamorgan since 1969 and wish to continue to do so for many years to come ... Our members come from the surrounding area, Cowbridge, Barry, Rhoose, St. Athan and Llantwit Major. We used to be known as Cowbridge Amateur Operatic Society but have ... changed our name ... as we felt that this description suits today’s Society better. We are a mixed choir and aim to sing all types of music, to please all tastes. We perform concerts in various venues in the Vale ... Although we enjoy singing as a choir, we would love to be able to perform a full show, as we have in the past ... To be able to do this and other shows again we really need some new members in the group.’

‘A Penarth-based chamber choir ... We're a mixed SATB choir of experienced choristers from around Cardiff and the Vale numbering just 16 voices. We may be compact but we make a surprisingly big sound and specialise in singing a cappella (without accompaniment). The choir's name reflects the extensive range of music we perform, from show tunes and pop songs in concert to classical pieces and sacred music in cathedrals.‘
