Mounts Bay Singers


The History of the Choir




Mounts Bay Singers was formed in 2001 by Sheila Farmer who had a library of music and exciting ideas for a new mixed-voice choir. 

The Deputy Musical Director, from the beginning, has been a member of the choir, Stephen Lawry, who is also  Musical Director of both the Mousehole Male Voice Choir and the Penzance Orpheus Ladies Choir.

The choir was lucky to welcome Bridgit England as a talented accompanist.

Tours to Italy, Cheshire, the Isle of Wight, Ireland and Wales and Brittany have been made. The choir has sung in a Mass in St Mark's Basilica, Venice, in Truro Cathedral, in Shrewsbury Abbey, in Llandaff Cathedral and at the Eden Project.
