The Nelson Male Voice Choir announces today that it is suspending all its practice and concert activities until further notice, to help prevent the spread of the Covid19 virus. Our members have a Midi File learning facility available to them through this website, and will therefore be able to continue rehearsing repertoire from home.  So, let us hope that this hiatus does not continue for long. In the meantime, our Facebook page is a good source of keeping in touch with us, and our message to all our friends and supporters is "Stay well!"

A New Year begins. 2020.

The Nelson Male Voice Choir has completed its programme, with a lovely final concert at NCMA, and a happy, year-ending get-together dinner at Mapua last evening. Songs were sung, friends hugged and hands shaken , as we now take a rest until the end of January. It has been an excellent year for us, and we thank Nigel Weeks, Pauline Boyd and Louis Lucas-Perry for their guidance, expertise and artistry . Thanks also , to our committee and support group who have cheerfully dealt with the many jobs that need doing to keep a large, dynamic choir functioning well. Have a great Christmas everybody : we'll be seeing you in the New Year. Don't forget, you gentlemen out there; you are most welcome to come and sing with us, make new friends and help swell our ranks, and strengthen our ambition to be the finest male voice choir in the southern hemisphere.
