Thanet Male Voice Choir
 
 
Musical Director : Martin Rendle
Accompanist : Deborah Longley
The Thanet Male Voice Choir was formed in 1977, and started from humble beginnings with a small group of men meeting in a room above a public house in Broadstairs Kent.
In 1985 the choir was asked to represent Broadstairs in a twinning ceremony with Wattignies in France. From this initial contact a link with other choirs in mainland Europe was developed and still exists today.
In 2010 the choir hosted a festival of music bringing choirs from France, Italy and Germany together at a concert held at the Winter Gardens Margate. The choir continues to enjoy these links under the banner of 'Harmony in Europe'. The choir are travelling to Italy in 2012.
In more recent times the choir took part in the VE Day celebrations at Regents Park and Buckingham Palace in the presence of Her Majesty The Queen.
The choir continues to grow in numbers and reputation, and currently has in the region of 60 members and performs approximatley 15 public concerts a year. Its two annual Christmas concerts now regularly raise in excess of £4000 for local charities.
