5 April: Levowan XII

Cornwall-based chamber choir, Levowan XII was established in 2015 by Director, Marcus Alleyne. Originally eight voices put together to perform a live carol concert for local radio, they are now 12, all of whom have a strong musical background and bring a broad range of experience and versatility.

The choir performs three main concerts per year and also collaborates with other music ensembles at a variety of events in Devon and Cornwall.  Delivering a vast repertoire covering almost any genre, including major works, they perform both a cappella and accompanied by piano, organ or chamber orchestra.

Their Spring Concert 2024 will feature Fauré’s Requiem and will also include a selection of individual pieces from the classical and musical theatre repertoire, based on a theme of contemplation and reflection by, amongst others, Allegri, Elgar, Sondheim, Joni Mitchell, Billy Joel, and Kate Rusby.

Mark Smith

Accompanist- studied piano and organ at Trinity College of Music, London, and worked as a professional accompanist in the South East before moving to Cornwall 12 years ago. He now shares his work time between gardening and accompanying. In any free time, Mark enjoys growing organic veg, walking, foraging and yet more music making!

Levowan XII also has firm links with both British and international composers and arrangers and has premiered several pieces of their work here in the UK.   A highlight has been to perform alongside the Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines.
