OPEN-AIR CONCERT IN POLPERRO
10 Aug 2022
The choir will again be 'at home' in Polperro for one of their famous free summer concerts, which we have been giving for well over 60 years, raising large sums of money for charity. This year the good causes are close to home with donations going to the 'Save Polperro Chapel' appeal and the choir's own music charity. The concerts will be in the open-air by Polperro Fish Quay (or in Polperro Methodist Chapel if it's wet or cold.) The Wreckers will be singing on Polperro Big Green afterwards, at about 9pm - follow us if you need directions!
POLPERRO CHAPEL CONCERT
31 Aug 2022
As the summer season draws towards its close, there are two more free summer concerts to come in Polperro, both in Polperro Methodist Chapel. The first is on Wednesday 31st August at 7.30pm. The 'Save Polperro Chapel' appeal and the choir's own music charity are the good causes selected to benefit from our collecting buckets this year. The chapel has been home to the choir for nearly 100 years and we aim to keep both going for as long into the future. We hope you benefit from some good singing too! See you there.
MASSED MALE VOICES OF CORNWALL

The symphony hall, where many top stars have performed, is widely regarded as one of the finest concert halls in the world with amazing acoustics. It has a perfect location by the canal in the centre of the city, and is a short walk from hotels and car parks. To buy tickets for this exceptional experience, click on the link below.

Our multi-talented musical director is also an author and has published several lovely well-illustrated stories - even including Polperro Fishermen's Choir and the Wreckers transformed into rather naughty singing black bunnies in 'Honey Bee Meadow'! In 'Hermie Meets The Monkeys' he visits the Wild Futures Monkey Sanctuary near Looe and, as usual, things take an unexpected turn!
