Abertillery Ladies Orpheus Choir
Cor Orpheus Menywod Abertyleri

The choir was extremely proud to take part in a special day of Remembrance which took place at the War Memorial on Monday 11th July.

The event was organised by The Royal British Legion to remember all those who were lost during the Battle of the Somme, a hundred years ago.

The service consisted of choral pieces, prayers and readings. It proved to be a very moving occasion and the choir felt honoured to take part.

It was particularly poignant because many of us visited the battlefields and memorials two years ago and actually saw the places where these brave men fought.

Our community lost many citizens during the Great War so it was extremely emotional to stand next to their names and sing in their honour.
