The Choir
Paul Wardell BMus(Hons), MEd, ARCO, NPQH, ARCO
Director of Music
After a very successful first year as the Musical Director, 2019 sees the Guilsfield Singers embark on a wide ranging and entertaining program continuing under the baton of Musical Director Paul Wardell. What began as a concert party more than 30 years ago, putting on musical variety shows, evolved eight years later into the Guilsfield Singers. The Guilsfield Singers have gained a reputation for imaginative and exciting performances of a wide selection of choral works. They are a mixed choir, drawing on musical talent from the Welshpool, Newtown and Oswestry areas of Powys and Shropshire.
Over the years the choir has raised many thousands of pounds for both local and national charities and enjoyed success in choral competitions. Their repertoire includes choral music from the sixteenth to the twenty-first centuries, including modern day composers and arrangers.
We are always glad to welcome new members and have vacancies for all voices and all musical abilities. There is no audition, but a commitment to attend weekly rehearsals is necessary. We meet at the Old School, Guilsfield on Thursday nights 7:30 to 9:30 pm. Come along and see if it is for you!
