INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY CELEBRATION
A few people have asked if this is a women only event. The answer is: nearly all the participants are women but please bring a man ( or half the tenors in a male voice choir ) if you want to. They are very welcome to celebrate with us!
We would like to highlight all the wonderful guests who are coming to share our forthcoming Gala Concert.
Part one: MEVAGISSEY LADIES CHOIR
The Choir was established in November 1985 starting with just 16 members, mainly wives of some of the Male Choir singers. The numbers have fluctuated over the years, the younger members taking time out for families or some retiring due to ill health but at present there are 40 members and newcomers are always welcome to join these happy and friendly Ladies.
The members cover a wide age range and come from all walks of life, some from fishing and farming families, others are career ladies and a number are retired. Many of the members live in Mevagissey and Gorran Haven but others come from the St Austell area and outlying villages. Some of the founder members are still singing in the choir.
The Musical Director, Barry Farley, is very highly qualified in the music field and joined in January 2008. The pianist is David Robinson an excellent musician who lives in Par, joining in 2015.
The choir has performed in many parts of Cornwall and at various places around England and Wales. They all take great pleasure from music and enjoy entertaining with their singing, always happy to help raise money for Charity .

💜COME AND JOIN US and don’t forget to wear something purple!💜
Stithians Ladies Choir is proud to announce their next concert.
To mark International Women’s Day on March 8th they will gather together lots of friends to celebrate the lives of some wonderful Cornish women. Expect fabulous music, inspiring words and lots of purple!
It isn’t very often that two Ladies choirs share the same concert. The common perception is that one ladies and one male choir go to make a successful evening’s entertainment. Not so on July 21st!Stithians Ladies Choir joined Mevagissey Ladies Choir in a lovely concert held in the beautiful surroundings of St Goran’s Church to raise money in support of the Cornwall Air Ambulance.
The weather was balmy, the coach was on time, the audience was terrific, the music delightful and the refreshments at the end were Out Of This World! Thank you so much Mevagissey Ladies for inviting us to share this superb evening and raise some much needed funds for the New Heli Appeal. Let’s hope it is not too long before there can be a return visit – head West ladies and prove once again that a Ladies Night concert can be an absolute joy!
We are really looking forward to travelling to Gorran Churchtown as guests of Mevagissey Ladies Choir. We join together to raise funds in support of the Cornwall Air Ambulance New Heli Appeal.
SEE YOU THERE!
