Perth Male Voice Choir (PMVC) is a performance choir singing in four-part harmony, under the leadership of our Musical Director Simone Bishop. We are based in Western Australia and routinely perform throughout the Perth Metropolitan area. In addition to organising our own concerts, we are available for hire for concert performances, weddings, funerals and corporate events.
We hold rehearsals at 7:30pm on Wednesday evenings at Royal Park Hall, 180 Charles Street, West Perth. We currently have over 60 members but are always seeking new members. We encourage men of all ages to come along to a rehearsal and experience the joy of singing. PMVC is not an audition choir. Whilst some singing experience and an ability to read music are desirable, they are not essential. The most important attribute is enthusiasm.
We have a varied repertoire including traditional Welsh male voice classics, songs from the shows, and contemporary pieces.
We regularly receive enquiries to sing at special events and have a developing calendar of events, see below for the 2022 list. In October 2018 we undertook our first overseas tour of UK. We performed 5 concerts in South Wales and the Cotswolds. We then performed at the Royal Albert Hall, as part of the London Welsh Festival of Male Choirs. In September this year we have a two joint concerts of 100 male voices, with Sydney Male Choir and the Australian Welsh Male Choir from Melbourne. Members of the choir will also join many other choirs from the Male Choir Association of Australia, in Sydney Town Hall in October.
