My husband and I attended the 20th anniversary concert at the Deer Park Church. As originally from Wales we appreciate the TWMVC so much. We were also most impressed by the performance of the pianist and wished we had the opportunity to show our appreciation of his skill. We understand the situation but we would like to record our feelings.

Note From The Webmaster: I will pass on your comments to our principal accompanist Matthew Coons. We are truly fortunate to be able to bask in his musical brilliance at every rehearsal and concert.

Thank you so much . It was an amazing afternoon getting to
hear your incredible choir, some of your pieces brought me to tears and I
closed my eyes to listen at times. Your choir is one that everyone should
hear and I am looking forward to your Anniversary concert in May.

Could you please let me know when the tickets are going on sale and where I
can buy them.

Regards and keep on singing!!

I attended the Holiday Concert at Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal Catholic Church today - Dec 6 2015. What a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon surrounded by beautiful music! Thoroughly enjoyed it and just wanted to say thank you!

We really appreciated your concert here in Guelph on Sept. 27th. The choir's handling of sound dynamics was as always outstanding. The programme was appropriately balanced and made for very good afternoon of musical entertainment.

Harold Woody was a dear friend of mine and his recent death saddened me. Due to ill-health, I was unable to travel to Canada to pay my respects to a great Welshman but he'll never be forgotten. RIP Harold.

Every time the guys come into Legion BR 66 and I am working they usually put on a little concert for me (and the locals). I am their biggest fan at the Legion and enjoy listening to them sing.

I had the pleasure of seeing the spring concert in Whitby this past Saturday night. It was such a wonderful evening listening to the beautiful voices of the Welsh Men's Choir as well as the soloist, Amy. I also have to say how remarkable the pianist was. It was a spectacular evening, and I highly recommend that people come out to see the choir perform.

It was my pleasure being there (at the Whitby Spring Concert) and listening to those wonderful voices. I got "goosebumps", and a lump in my throat. The great Director that I sang with in Brighton was a master. He passed away 4 years ago, and we were never able to find another one to take his place, so unfortunately our small chorus folded. I think of him often, and last night seeing and hearing the emotional high that your entire choir provided, brought back many happy memories. The Standing Ovation was well deserved! Cheers, Phil

My sincere compliments go to: William; Matthew; the choristers,
Music Director, and Accompanist of the Burlington Welsh Male Chorus; and Margaret Bárdos. On Saint David's Day, you offered a magnificent celebration of the Welsh language and music and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. I know from personal experience, just how much work goes into organizing and performing a concert of that magnitude - but you made it look all so easy.

I would also like to compliment Greg Brown, the compere, on his style of introducing the various pieces. His sense of humour and deadpan, risqué asides were a wonderful compliment to the concert. It is one thing to introduce the numbers - but quite another to have the audience laugh ("We Rise Again") and be connected with the next tune, even before it begins.

My best wishes to you all.

The January 31st Concert was excellent, a very enjoyable evening outing. Your MC was very amusing. Not only do the choir members make joy-filled sounds, they all look great. I love to see men dressed to the nines!!

Once again, the boys sang their hearts out and provided the audience with a superb evening.
I have been at many of their concerts and am never disappointed. Hats off to all of you.

My friends and I so enjoyed the excellent music and evening put on by the Welsh Choir at Trinity Aurora.A great way to spend a cold winter evening.

The January 31st concert at Trinity Church Aurora was terrific and the sellout crowd clearly enjoyed the choral music and John Clement's guest appearance. Friends from Markham who attended enjoyed both the concert and venue, having seen it advertised in local media.

What a fantastic concert you put on for us on Saturday evening at Trinity. It was a joy to listen to you and for such a worthy cause as the Welcome Table. Thanks so much!

What a choir you are. Such beautiful music. Your sound filled me with Awe. I especially enjoyed Divine Brahma and Scotland the Brave. What memorable music you gave to your sold out audience. Everyone loved you.

An absolute delight to listen to you guys! The variety of music was perfect. Thanks for supporting our Welcome Table program!

Monica & I always enjoy your concerts and Jan.31 was excellent as usual. Also, it was close to home so we didn't have to drive down to the city. Wish your March 1 concert was closer.

A belated email to say how much Ray, our two children and their spouses and I enjoyed the Christmas concert. It was a truly wonderful and memorable evening for us. It was also an eye opener for the young ones as they weren't familiar with the tradition of Welsh choirs. Many thanks again for keeping us in the loop re the concert schedule.

What a gift, in keeping with the season, you gave your audience on Saturday night. The widely varied music - with its balanced blending of voices, its precision with and sensitivity to the lyrics, the fitting dynamics - and the humour - provided by the choir, the conductor, the announcer and even the soloist - made the gift memorable indeed.

The soloist - Marion Samuel-Stevens - provided a charming contrast to the male voicing.

But what caught my ears' attention most was the superb skill of Matthew Coons! He deserves special credit for his understated-when-necessary, delicate, precise, bold (Finlandia and the carols) inspired support. What a treasure he is for this splendid choir.
