We formed in September 1991 and we are still enjoying singing together over 28 years on and ‘As long as we have music’ will continue to do so for many more years. We gave our first performance six weeks after getting together when we sang at a wedding in St. Peters Church Goodwick. We have since sung at lots of weddings in Pembrokeshire some have been at weddings of our members.
We have performed in various places around Wales including St. Davids Cathedral, Pembroke Castle and Cardiff Castle with Prince Charles in attendance. We also took part in the ‘Songs of Praise’ live service from the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff with Cliff Richard and Bryn Terfel. More recently we performed at Rhosygilwen near Cardigan. We have taken part in many massed choir concerts in Swansea and Cardiff. We have also performed in various venues throughout England, Scotland and Ireland.
We have travelled to and performed in Oberkirch, Germany on a few occasions as part of the Haverfordwest twinning celebrations.
We perform our annual Christmas concert at St. Mary’s church Haverfordwest when we help raise much needed funds for the upkeep of the church and the church organ. Last year we were joined by actor Nathan Sussex.
We continue to enjoy performing to raise funds for many local charities, and pay regular visits to some of the nursing homes in Pembrokeshire.
In 1994 we made our first recording on tape titled ‘As long as I have music’
In 1999 Dr. Nancy Mann joined us as our Musical Director, Prior to that we had been led by Claire Harrison. Our accompanist is Gerry Nicholas we have also been accompanied by Gwenith Baker and Ann Wheeler.
