We are saddened to hear of the death of T. Bryan Bevan, on 16 May 2022 at the age of 96. Bryan joined the Choir in December 1986 and was a very faithful member. He will always be remembered for his poignant reading of “The Man We Never Knew” at the Gowerton Comprehensive School Remembrance Service as well as other similar events over many years.

Our sympathy goes to his family at this very sad time.

Bryan’s funeral will be held at Swansea Crematorium on 31 May 2022 at 1530.

It It is with great sadness that we learn of the death of Raymond, a life member of Dunvant Male Choir.

Raymond started his working life as a messenger for the Great Western Railway at Nant-y-moel, taking telegraph messages from the station to the village.

Serving as a dispatch rider in the Second World War, he later became a military policeman. On returning to civilian life, he became a police officer with South Wales Police rising to the rank of Sergeant.

On his retirement he joined the Choir and was an accomplished singer and loyal member respected by all who met him for his calm and friendly manner.

Our sympathies go to his son Andrew.

Saturday night saw a concert that will live long in the memory. 125 (+2) years of male choral singing celebrated by Dunvant Male Choir. A marvellous sound from the choir was ably assisted, as ever, by Tony Phipps and D. Huw Rees. And, of course, our soloists and guest accompanist – Sir Bryn Terfel, Angharad Morgan, Annabel Thwaite and Lauren Elizabeth Williams.

Thanks also to Roy Woodward for hosting the evening.

Musical Director Jon Rogers said, “This is one of the proudest moments that I’ve had during my time with the choir. As we emerge from the pandemic, what a platform we now have to build upon and continue this amazing tradition!”

It is with great sadness that we hear of the death in Germany of Hansi Neuhaus a former chairman of Sängervereinigung 1866 Essen-Burgaltendorf choir and an Honorary Life Member of Dunvant Male Voice Choir.

Hansi was in the choir for almost 70 years and was always in the lead in the friendship between Dunvant Male Voice Choir and Sängervereinigung 1866 Essen-Burgaltendorf.

Hansi first came to Dunvant in 1966 and has been involved with exchange visits ever since between the two choirs. In his house a stained glass window with the crests of both choirs took pride of place. Following his visit to Dunvant Hansi and Terry Morgan became life long friends, not only exchanging choir visits but also family holidays.

Our sympathies go out to Hansi’s family and all friends in Germany.

It is with great sadness that we received the news of the passing of Ken Graves. Ken was a faithful member of the Bass section of the Choir since 1987.

We would like to extend our deepest sympathies to his wife Elaine and all the members of his family. We will keep you informed of the arrangements of his Funeral when this information is received.
