 Mercer's Moon River, followed by When A Child Is Born.  Geoff went on to conduct They didn't Believe Me, Mele Kalikimaka, The Brave Hussar (arrangement by Geoff Porter), Our Watchword (Music Edward Grieg and words by Geoff Porter) and singing a few Christmas Songs to finish off the evening. Before the audience tucked into mince pies, mulled wine, and other light snacks and refreshments. ​If you were not in the audience for this concert, hope to see you soon at one of the concerts next year.

​Well another year of singing has come to an end, finishing as always with our Christmas Concert. It was a great evening of music, song and merriment. The choir's musical director Geoff Porter, started the programme with I See A Star, moving onto There is Faint Music.

​Tuesday 19th December 2017

​Our Guest Soloist for the evening

was Liz Mellor, singing On My Own, a well known song from Les Miserables. Then later in the programme played Johannes Brahms Hungarian Dance No5 on the violin. Michael Winter conducted the choir in a rendition of Henry Mancini and Johnney  

               How The Choir Started

The choir originally formed in 1961 by a group of Portsmouth Postmen, singing as they sorted the mail. Based at the Head Post Office Portsmouth.  In 1974 the name of the choir changed to what it is known by today, THE SOLENT MALE VOICE CHOIR.

The Solent Male Voice Choir currently have 31 members, of which 2 members are still from the original formed choir.
Recently we have moved our base of operations to St Faiths Church Hall in Havant, where there are better acoustics, a great piano, and support from the church.  It's a wonderful hall, and going through a make over.  The Solent Male Voice Choir have truly found a new home.
