About Vocelle

vocelle1

Vocelle is a vibrant group of women who love to sing and make music to an exceptional standard. Our repertoire is exceptionally varied and includes songs from every genre of music – classics, folk and jazz to name but a few.  We are very proud of our Welsh heritage and love to sing traditional and contemporary Welsh songs.  We are also adept at singing in many other languages including French ,German and Latin – and of course, English.

The choir was formed in 2012 under the direction of Meryn Williams and specialises in close harmony.  The choir’s inaugural concert was hosted by the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff, as the guests of the City of Cardiff (Melingriffith) Brass Band and was received to high acclaim.

The choir is available to undertake any event and has successfully delivered musical entertainment at:

  • corporate events;
  • weddings;
  • concerts; and
  • charitable events.

The choir is very proud to have been able to have raised a considerable amount of money towards many charities for example, Bosom Pals (a local Breast Cancer Charity), British Heart Foundation, Diabetes, to name but a few.

Vocelle has toured internationally and most recently given concerts in venues in Valencia and Budapest.  The choir is planning to perform their first competition in the Llandudno Choral Festival in November 2016.

If you would like to experience Vocelle’s singing for yourself, please feel free to come along and listen to us during a rehearsal on a Wednesday evening (from 7.30pm) at the Church Hall in Llanharry, Pontyclun, where you will be made very welcome.

If you are an experienced chorister and are interested in finding out more about joining Vocelle, please contact us using the details on the contacts tab.
