HISTORY IN THE MAKING

Ten men of Holly Hill Wesleyan Methodist Church choir performed the Cantata “Daughter of Moab” by Isaac Andrew on 28 September 1919. The conductor, Bob Gibbon, was so impressed with the ten men singing that he suggested they should continue to sing together and the “Felling Wesleyan Male Voice Party” was born.

At their 1st concert in February 1920, they sang two numbers, “The Owl and the Pussycat” and “My old friend Joe”. In April 1920, they changed their name to the “Orpheus Male Voice Choir” and finally on the 15th October the name “Felling Male Voice Choir” was adopted.
