The Choir has enjoyed many significant events throughout its history. It has undertaken concert tours in California, Belgium, Holland, and the UK. It has achieved successes at music festivals at Llangollen International Eisteddfod, the Welsh Mining Festival, Huddersfield, Blackpool, Cheltenham and in its home county of Cornwall.

Singing venues have included St. Paul's Cathedral, Royal Albert Hall, Gloucester and Truro Cathedrals. The more unusual have been in a Jumbo Jet, 37,000 feet above the Atlantic, 700 feet down a Cornish tin mine recording Christmas carols for the BBC, at the Royal Agricultural Show in Stoneleigh, on a tall ship taking part in the Tall Ships Race starting at Falmouth, on a fishing trawler for the BBC during filming and at Trebah Gardens, Cornwall as part of the TV "Gardens from Heaven" series. It has also appeared on "Song of Praise" recorded at Coverack by BBC World Service

The Choir was formed initially to sing at local events, particularly those arranged for charity fund raising. There are many requests by organisers of such events throughout the year for concerts. These local events have always been popular with Choir members and ensures a loyal and enthusiastic membership.






The Choir




      Treverva Male Voice Choir, 1936

Treverva Male Voice Choir was formed in 1936 in the small Cornish village of Treverva. It was preceded by a renowned male quartet. This singing group was so popular and  successful at competitive festivals that many other local men were inspired to form a choir. This led to the formation of the Treverva Male Voice Choir with the leader of the quartet, Edgar Kessell, as its MD.
It was based in the small chapel in Treverva  until the building was closed in 2012. The Choir is now based at "The Space", a community hall located in the grounds of Penryn Rugby Club.

Newcomers are always welcome. For details of joining the Choir or booking for concerts, please contact Hon. Sec. Mike Thomas:
