Join the Men & Women of the Tay for a concert in Perth on June 9th, 2019 at the St. James the Apostle Anglican Church.
The Men of the Tay was formed in the winter of 2000. A group of 12 men met each week to simply sing and enjoy each other’s company. It was a wonderful time spent together gathered around a piano in the living room, with borrowed music and a few harmonic attempts. It was in the fall of 2002 that the idea of doing something more began and soon the chorus began to grow and expand and actually emerged to perform for the general public.
Now approaching 36 members, it has remained true to its ideals … to come together and sing. Concerts and performances are secondary to the opportunity to work together, to learn about music and to enjoy each other’s company.The chorus attempts to obtain the best music published for the male chorus at its level. It has a wide range of music: from Broadway, to Folk Songs, to Church and even comedy numbers. The chorus could be singing Doo-Wop and then turn around and work in Latin. It is all part of the experience of being a member.
In September of 2008 a new chorus was formed. The Women of the Tay offers the same opportunity to for female members within the local community.
The Women of the Tay has 48 members which is currently its full complement of singers. They have developed a reputation for beautiful music, lively songs and are in great demand within the community. They took part in the Festival of Good Cheer, the Nine Lessons and Carols, the Tay 175th celebrations and will make numerous other appearances this season.
