On the 28th September 1919 the choir of

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

  The choir grew in strength and numbers and gave its first performance in February 1920.
At a special meeting in April 1920, with 19 members present, the name was changed to the “Orpheus Male Voice Choir” and finally on the 15th October the name “Felling Male Voice Choir” was adopted.
