Friends of the Choir

Mr Les Jenkin is the Friends of BOMVC Co-ordinator.

Our Choir maintains a list of patrons known as ‘Friends of the Brixham Orpheus Male Voice Choir’. We hope that you will decide to become a Friend of the Choir and support us in our aims and objectives – to bring the sound of Male Voice singing to as many people as possible, and raise money for charity whilst enjoying ourselves. For a minimum donation of £10 annually per person, you will receive the following:-

  • Full Choir engagement list for the year
  • Certificate of Membership
  • Opportunity to attend our Annual Dinner
  • Choir Badge
  • Free program for the Annual Concert for each member
  • Opportunity to join us at any Social Events and any concerts to which may travel
  • A list of names of the friends of the Choir will be included in our annual program

Mr Paul Jarrett M.B.E. former Superintendent of The Royal National Mission to Deep Sea Fisherman at Brixham, Devon is the President of the Friends of The Brixham Orpheus Male Voice Choir, and Mr Les Jenkin is the Co-ordinator. We would like to thank them both, and all who support our Friends of the Choir.

The BOMVC has at this moment (August 2011) 73 Friends of the Choir members on the lists. There are also 31 Honorary Members and 9 Honorary Life Members.

As the Friends of the BOMVC has been running since 2001 we have for the first time issued ten year Loyalty Appreciation Certificates, and in no alphabetical order they are: Mrs B Brice, Ms D Carey, Mr and Mrs B Evans, Mrs K Underwood, Mr R Bond, Mr and Mrs P Martin, Mr and Mrs D Clarke, Mr B Hamilton, Mrs E Fowler B.E.M., Mrs D Catherall, Mrs J Coyde, Mr H Binham, Mr D Wrake, Mrs M Gray, Mr L Hargreaves, Mr and Mrs L Pratt, Mr and Mrs P Newton, Mr and Mrs J Merchant, Mrs D Gordon-Smith. This course of action we hope to continue.

We would welcome interest from anyone who wishes to join us and have the pleasure of knowing that we are all helping to expand the work for charity that our great Orpheus Choir does.
