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.
Since moving to Penryn, there has been a considerable increase in choir membership and anyone interested in singing and being part of the Choir would be most welcome. We rehearse on Monday evenings at the new base, "The Space", located in the grounds of Penryn Rugby Club.
It was based in the small chapel in Treverva until the building was closed in 2012. The Choir is now based in nearby Penryn.
The Choir Secretary, Mike Thomas, would be pleased to provide details of joining, etc, and his contact details are on the Contacts page.
