    RE: Proposed Concert or Co-concert at Emanuel United

    Dear Arlene,

    My name is Bruce Mullock. I sing baritone with the Toronto Welsh Male Voice Choir. (TWMVC)
    I double as its concert secretary. I understand that you are deeply involved with choral music in the Peterborough area on multiple fronts.

    Could a co-concert in some form work for Emanuel United? Your church might host a combination social and fundraising concert event, with TWMVC serving as the draw or part of the draw. We might share the stage with one of the choral groups you direct. A registered charitable organization, TWMVC would be delighted to perform for your church community.
    We did perform there one Sunday afternoon in October 2010

    Our past sponsors include countless churches of varied denominations. These sponsors had grown weary of bake and rummage sales. All shared a desire to fund raise, but in a pleasant way. You could think of TWMVC as one charitable organization, enabling other charitable organizations to raise money enjoyably for their projects.

    We love doing this. Audiences tell us that it shows. During our regular 2018 /2019 season, we sent 12 Ontario audiences home, beaming. In 2018 we ventured to Newfoundland in July, where we performed a four-concert tour.

    Completing our 23rd season, the Toronto Welsh Male Voice Choir is a powerful, auditioned male choir, singing in the TTBB tradition of the Welsh male voice choruses. We sing the achingly beautiful Welsh repertoire completely off-book and in Welsh…no small task.

    Expect energetic audience response!

    TWMVC knows how to connect with an audience. Known for our passion and nuance, both of phrasing and dynamic, the Choir includes music selections from the realms of opera aria, Canadian folk, spiritual, pop and Broadway.

    It is a great mix. All this comes highlighted by a pervasive sense of fun, arising from a cheeky choir stage presence and a quick-witted master of ceremonies.

    We have entertained audiences, not only across Ontario, but also across Canada. TWMVC has performed as well in both the UK and the USA, even to the stage of Carnegie Hall. William Woloschuk is our brilliant Artistic Director. Bryn Terfel is our Honorary Patron.

    To see for yourself how people react, please scan the comments of concert goers:

    I hope the prospect of a 2020 Toronto Welsh Male Voice Choir concert may hold interest for you. Please advise me, if you wish detail on choir fees or logistics.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    Cofion cynnes, kind regards,

    Bruce Mullock
    Concert Secretary
    Toronto Welsh Male Voice Choir
