Imerys Mid-Cornwall Male Choir
The Choir has had unprecedented success over the past two years and is now over 40 members strong under the musical directorship of Mr Barry Hawken. In 2008 Imerys Engineering Male Voice Choir amalgamated with St. Austell Male Voice Choir and this has proved very successful. The Choir, now known as Imerys Mid-Cornwall Male Choir has undertaken many exciting music projects such as singing in the Hall for Cornwall and recording one of their songs for the BBC 1 programme 'The Great British Countryside'. They also provided the musical setting for the film premiere of 'Days of Clay' shown at the Bell Theatre, Brannel School. Most recently they were part of 'Kernowyon A Gan' Men of Cornwall Sing at The Royal Albert Hall in November 2013.
