A Falmouth male voice choir that sings renditions of Cornish classics is hosting a joint gig with a modern men's choir from London.

Members of Falmouth's Men Are Singing look forward to putting up their metropolitan counterparts for the night and making some new friends after their gig at King Charles church on November 2.

Men Are Singing eschew the traditional repertoire of songs about fishermen, miners and God (or Andrew Lloyd Webber covers), in favour of some barnstorming versions of tracks by the likes of Talking Heads, Tom Waits, Bjork and Ivor Cutler.

Chaps Choir is a large male singing gang from London; say goodbye to the male voice choir most would recognise. The group has been sharing its joy-inducing, heart-string pulling repertoire to audiences since 2013. Prepare for pop re-hashes, snowy hunting calls, self-aware pirates and, well, lots of men singing …

Since 2013 their voices have filled the Royal Festival Hall, The Union Chapel & other major London venues. Featured at Wilderness & Port Eliot festivals the choir has slowly built a name through its urbane entertaining presentation and unexpected repertoire choices. They’ve performed live on sat night prime time TV, recorded at Abbey Road and been the subject of articles & news pieces exploring men’s singing & male community.

Chaps Choir is on a mission to bring the metropolitan singing chap into the choral melee and envisions a world were all chaps (and ‘other’ men) can find their singing voice.

The gig at the Church of King Charles the Martyr starts at 7.30pm on November 2 and tickets can be purchased at eventbrite.co.uk/e/chaps-choir-men-are-singing-tickets-74955019481.
