    General Information

    We are a successful ladies choir located in Pontypool, attracting members from across the region. Formed in 2004, we have developed and evolved to produce a unique sound, assisted by our musical team. We regularly perform at charity events, pensioner's clubs and residential homes.

    All the ladies share a great joy in singing, and rehearsals are always

  • Our Team

    The Musical Team

    Musical Director - Karen Middle B.Ed, NPQH

    Karen, originally from Birmingham, showed a flair for music from age five playing piano, guitar, flute, and clarinet. She is a primary school teacher with many years of experience, and has directed school, church, and community choirs. Her enthusiasm is contagious, she brings a freshness and new-life to the choir every week.

    Accompanist - Jonathan Bussy B.Ed(Music), MA

    An accomplished musician, Jonathan began playing the piano at the age of six showing a natural talent for music. He is headteacher at Nant Celyn Primary School, Cwmbran and juggles a very busy schedule, including directing the school choir and playing in a local band.

     

    Jonathan has recently been awarded the Headteacher of the Year award in the Gwent School Awards.

    Assistant Accompanist - Jack Lockwood

    Jack is a very gifted young musician, who plays saxophone, piano, and clarinet. He is still attending school, and plays in various bands and orchestras through Gwent Music. The addition of Jack to the musical team has been a great success.

    Drums - Jacqui Forest-Jones

    Jacqui is a retired Food Technology teacher, who plays with the Crazy Kats Brass Ensemble and has ties to Abergavenny Brass Band. She is a brilliant and intuitive drummer that enhances the accompaniment. The added element of the drums has enriched the sound of the choir.

    President - John Williams


    John Williams is very well known in musical circles for his tireless fundraising efforts for many charities. He has become synonymous with the events at the Garndiffaith Millenium Hall. As our President, he has supported us through ups and downs, and his attendance at our concerts is always a welcome boost.
