It is more than 90 years since our predecessors, the Bournemouth Labour Choir, amalgamated with the Springbourne Male Voice Choir and gathered on the steps of Bournemouth Town Hall for their first performance as Bournemouth Male Voice Choir to sing at a reception held by the Mayor in 1922.

This photograph, courtesy of the Bournemouth Daily Echo, shows Mrs Empson, conductor of the choir possibly following her last performance before handing over to her successor, Matt Dando. The trophy is believed to been won at the Musical Festival at the Town Hall.
