During the weeks leading up to Christmas, the Choir have been busy practising in an open sided marquee at The Barn at Brynich, Brecon, generously loaned to the choir on a Friday night or Sunday afternoon by the Jones family. Father Christmas hats have been donned, along with the odd pair of antlers and even a woollen Christmas pudding hat, not only to keep choristers in a festive mood but on occasions a little warmer. Singing with facemasks has proved a particular challenge especially for those wearing glasses!
The result has been a series of 3 Virtual Christmas Concerts in aid of Shelter Cymru and Brecon Foodbank and have been premiered Live on Facebook. The concerts can be viewed below (YouTube Video) or via the Choir Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/breconmalechoir
During this time of year, the Choir would be visiting Care Homes singing to the staff and residents. Unfortunately, we are unable to do that this year, but the Choir have recorded a number of Christmas Carols with the videos being sent directly to them. The Choir wanted to bring some festive cheer to everyone during these difficult times.
