Male Voice Choirs
'Founded in 1959 and based in Senghenydd ... We sing a wide range of music, including classic rock, hits from the West End, pieces from famous operettas, and, of course, traditional Welsh hymns. We love what we do and we are passionate about singing and having a fun time which is why we have performed over 1,000 concerts to date! Still, we don’t take ourselves too seriously – we’re just as happy singing in a hushed cathedral as we are outside Gregg’s on a bustling high street ...'
'Formed in 1970 ... Côr Meibion Abercynon has travelled extensively, performing throughout the United Kingdom and has also toured Brittany, Ireland, Canada, Scotland and Cornwall ... The Choir is supported by a ladies section which contributes strongly to the success of the choir. They are constant companions and supporters at our concerts, social events and on tour ...'
Founded 1908: 'We men of Abertillery love all that belonging to a Male Voice Choir means. With our singing, comes recollections of our childhood in a dirty, noisy, politically conscious South Wales Valley. We enjoy the true fellowship, the inevitable humour, the intense concentration that are all part of twice weekly practices. None of as now spend our lives in the dark a danger of coal mining, since the closure of the last mine in our Valley! We have become technicians in clean factories, headmasters, engineers, shop owners, gentleman of retirement and yes, unfortunately some of us are unemployed. But our fathers were miners and they sang. They sang in our chapels and we sing with them. We are proud of our heritage ...'
'The Choir can trace its roots back to 1933 when it was formed as an evening class under the control of the local Education Authority. Members paid a fee of 7/6d (37p) to the Authority and the same amount as an annual subscription ... The Choir continues in good heart but we are always conscious of the need to attract new and particularly younger members. To this end we have operated a Scholarship scheme for some years whereby senior pupils at local schools are paid to sing with us for a year as an introduction to choral singing. It is hoped that this will plant some seeds which will come to fruition in the future. We give a number of concerts each year in aid of local charities, church organisations, etc, and the highlight of our year is our Annual Concert when we are helped by guest professional soloists.'
'One of Derbyshire’s leading male voice choirs, with around 35 voices. It was founded 1903 ... The Choir is constantly updating its repertoire and is available for hire for concerts and events and enjoys a lively and often busy calender.'
Founded in 1916: 'We are a friendly group with a common interest in singing ... If you like to sing and would like to come and join in there is no audition and you don’t have to be able to read music but if you can great. We offer free entry and a six week trial period. So what are you waiting for ? drop in and see us or if you would like to know more information you can call ...'
'As the name suggests an all male choir singing anything from medieval chants to the latest pop hits with traditional male voice pieces, opera, musicals and some devotional music interdispersed. Nothing is considered taboo or too difficult or easy for that matter. We are not an elitist choir and consider all "men" should be given the opportunity to learn to sing.'
'Formed in April 1974 by the Aughton Ratepayers and Residents Association ... The Choir and its audiences have commented constantly on the quality of our preformances and in addition on the expressive, rousing and moving performances on local church organs, which add tremendously to the impact and quality of the Choir's Concerts and performances ...'
'The Choir was founded by the local miners of Backworth Colliery in 1951 and although the pits are long-gone, the Choir is more active than it has ever been ... Today’s Choir is a sixty strong community choir, attracting members from all walks of life. We are proud to support the work of many regional charities and organisations through our performances.'
'Would you like to be involved with an organisation that offers friendship and fellowship? As well as engagements in many parts of N. Ireland and the Republic of Ireland there could also be the opportunity to undertake short trips to Britain and Europe and on occasions to perform in festivals and with leading British and Irish artists ...'
'Founded in 1919 under the initial name of Barnstaple YMCA Male Voice Choir. A local organist and musician was asked to form a choir in order that the YMCA could hold a charity concert to mark its re-opening after the end of World War I. It proved a great success and the singers agreed to stay together. By 1920 the links with the YMCA were no longer relevant and the Choir's name was changed to the Barnstaple Male Voice Choir and has so remained until this day.'
'Formed in March 2011 to provide a means of relaxation for hospital staff and for the benefit of patients ... The initial membership was 8 and has now increased to 35+ and includes people who are not staff members but enjoy singing in a choir ... The Choir has sung at many events and venues where local charities have been holding a fund raising event and is very proud of its achievement in helping to raise a considerable amount of money for good causes.'
'The tradition of choral music in Beaufort can be traced back to 1867 when concerts were reported in Barham Chapel school room and Bethesda Chapel; the tradition had continued over the years, interrupted only by the two World Wars ... In the 1960s the choir decided to concentrate on concert work rather than competitions and over the years the choir has sung in Holland, Ireland, Germany and just about every corner of the UK ... If you would like to be part of this special choir why not join us? ... We guarantee a warm welcome, great camaraderie and lots of laughter. And a chance to participate in the great tradition of choral singing in one of the best choirs in Wales.'
Formed 1963: 'The Choir has developed a substantial portfolio of songs from a wide range of musical genres. Some you will recognize as typical "Male Voice" favourites but others you might not immediately associate with choirs at all ... Many of our patrons will attend several concerts each season so it is important that we are able to offer a variety of music that keeps everything fresh. In total the choir has performed over 200 different songs over the last 50 years ...'
Formed in 1952: 'Over the years, the choir’s achievements have been considerable, having numerous successes at musical festivals and engagements with some of Britain’s finest choirs and regimental and brass bands, at the same time raising thousands of pounds for local and national charities ... The choir now numbers over 70 singers and is proud to be mentioned in the "Who's who" entry of His Grace the fourteenth Duke of St Albans, our patron'.
'You may not have considered joining a choir before, but if you would like to sing, why not join Biddulph Male Voice Choir? ... We are always open to receiving new choristers who are welcomed into the most suitable section for their voice. There is an initial uncommitted period which gives both the Music Director, and the hopeful, an informal opportunity to assess whether it is wise to continue. As the probation period continues and when the MD feels the time is right and the chorister is comfortable with the current repertoire then comes the providing of the choir blazer in readiness for that never to be forgotten “first concert” ...'
'The Choir is always looking to attract new recruits – young or not so young ... To join the Choir you will need to undergo a voice test (this is done on a one to one basis with the Musical Director – no one else will be in attendance) so that the MD can place you in the appropriate section.The MD will chart your progress and when he is satisfied that you are ready to sing with the choir and can perform to the high standard that is required you will become a fully fledged chorister ... Save Our Male Voice Choirs is our documentary film following Blaenavon Male Voice Choir, as they look to encourage new, younger members to join them, and to embrace social media ...'
'Music brings people together! This saying could well be our motto as we're a very varied group of people, all bound by their love of music. Anyone with love of singing can join us. Everyone is warmly welcomed and, next to practising hard to achieve a high musical standard, it’s all about the spirit of fun and conviviality. After rehearsal, we often wrap up with a little get-together ... Based in Cwmavon, Port Talbot, South Wales, we are available for Weddings, Charity Events, Birthdays & Anniversaries, Private Functions and much more ...'
'Formed in August 2009 when a number of like-minded individuals began to visualise the formation of a Male Choir in the Lower Llynfi Valley. Our group of experienced and well respected Choristers came up with some basic philosophies: Keep the choir to a manageable size; Take our music to the community-at-large; Establish ourselves as a quality musical group; Encourage less experienced Choristers to grow in ability and musicality; Share our joy in singing!'
'We are a group of men, from all walks of life with a mutual love of music and a desire to perform songs to the best of our ability. We perform regularly through the year on behalf of charities, for community groups and also at private functions.'
'The objective of the Choir is to provide an opportunity for local men to meet regularly and make music together whilst supporting and entertaining local charities and organisations with concerts. There are no auditions to join; all you need is an enthusiasm and a love of singing. Our repertoire is based on traditional male voice choral pieces, interspersed with songs from the shows and popular music.'
'The Choir was formed in 1971 ... and our aim is to reach a membership of 50, this being the optimum for the venues in which we perform and rehearse ... We are a friendly Choir and have toured Austria, Hungary, France and Italy, as well as in the United Kingdom. We have taken part in, and won, a number of competitions, although these do not feature highly in our priorities ... Our two main concerts are held in May and at Christmas.'
'The almost 100 strong Bridgend Male Choir has a wide repertoire of classical and folk pieces, traditional Welsh Anthems, and popular songs from the shows. The Choir give regular concerts ... which are always well attended and extremely popular, throughout South Wales and the rest of the UK, as well as internationally.'
'We have 30 or so members coming from all walks of life. Age is not a factor as men of all ages are made very welcome. All enjoy the singing, fellowship and fun the choir affords ... If you enjoy singing and want to sing well, then you will fit perfectly in our choir. There are no auditions and no requirement to be able to read music although of course it helps ... Bridgnorth Male Voice Choir does not consider itself to be an elitist choir. We exist for men who want to sing to be given a chance to perform. So come along to one of our practices, sit down and try it out ...'
'Each year the Choir has a varied list of engagements in and around Torbay and the West Country area ... The Choir looks forward to meeting our regular supporters on these occasions and to meeting and making many more new friendships.

The BOMVC also has a flourishing Friends of the Brixham Orpheus Male Voice Choir group who always welcome new members.

Why not go one step further and join the Choir as a member and become part of one of the most successful and travelled Male Voice Choirs in Wales? A warm welcome awaits you all.'
'During the past forty years the Choir has experienced many changes, in style of music, in membership and in the method of presentation. There are few choirs that can give a concert without the use of sheet music. Our repertoire includes classical items such as Welsh Hymns, spirituals, folk music, music from the shows, opera, acapella and popular songs. We try to cater for all tastes.'
'In recent years the Choir has toured in Germany, France, Ireland and the Czech Republic as well as many trips in Wales and the rest of the UK to sing with other choirs and entertaining many thousands of people in venues ranging from tiny churches and village halls to the more impressive surroundings of St David’s Hall and the Millennium Centre and of course the Albert Hall. Most concerts are in support of local and national charities and the Choir have been honoured to be invited to sing at weddings and funerals in the local community.'
'New comers are always welcome and there is no voice test or other selection procedure. You can just come along to see if you like it for a few weeks before joining ... Most newcomers have not sung for many years and are not welsh speaking. Yes! We do sing some songs in Welsh but most non-welsh speaking members manage this after a period of time. The rewards of singing in a choir are numerous and very enjoyable. There are thought to be considerable benefits to health and well-being. (Some of our members are in their 80’s and 90’s).'
'Formed early in 1997 in an attempt to resurrect the singing traditions of the area in the local pubs around St Just and West Cornwall, and to raise funds for local charities. Our distinctive sound was formerly familiar in impromptu sessions throughout the town, especially during the St Just Feast celebrations, but had declined in recent years due mainly to the demise of the local tin mines ... The release of four CD’s, brief television appearances and local radio exposure have kept Cape Cornwall Singers in the public eye ... Cape Cornwall Singers are ordinary people, with ordinary lives, who sing with passion of the enduring traditions and extraordinary beauty of our homeland ... We are always seeking new members, no experience necessary, males over 18 (because we are pub singers).'
'Based in the Nottingham area of England where it was formed in 1908. With around 80 members the choir is now larger than ever, attracting younger members who will safeguard its future. It has a wide-ranging current repertoire of nearly 50 items - from traditional to modern, sacred to secular and from the serious to the light-hearted – enough to suit practically all tastes and occasions!'
'Singing in harmony since 1900 ... The Choir has travelled far since those early days, but its aim remains the same: "The study of Choral music as suited to Male voices and to give the listening public the highest standard of Male voice singing." As a Choir local to Clydebank we are always keen to recruit new members, and currently have members from all parts of the West of Scotland whose ages range from 20 to 90.'
'Although many singers come from Corby itself, the catchment area is quite extensive. Our membership of just over fifty singers ranges in age from twenty to eighty nine. We rehearse and perform throughout the year and, in recent times, we have performed an annual average of twelve concerts ... Our current repertoire includes songs from West End shows, popular music, songs of the sea, sacred songs, and music from operas. Recently we have added more contemporary music. As well as English, we sing German, French, Latin, Maori, Welsh and Zulu songs ... We are fortunate to have the support of a Ladies Group that also raises funds for charities. Although totally independent, the group organises social events for the Choir which are very popular. The Ladies are also very supportive when we hold our own fundraising activities.'
'The Choir performs concerts far and wide by invitation or request. We have a varied repertoire of songs to suit all tastes and, from the very many letters of appreciation and thanks we receive, we clearly achieve our aim of audience entertainment. Although we are a Welsh male voice choir, we are able to perform music in English; French; German; Latin and even the Zulu Xhosa dialect ... In the history of Denbigh Male Voice Choir one of our greatest claims to fame is that we appeared world wide on BBC television on Millennium Eve, singing Dylan Thomas’s Evening Prayer live by the River Elwy in St Asaph.'
'A traditional Welsh male voice choir from the Llandeilo area. We are always ready to welcome new choristers ... If you are interested in joining us, please just come to one of our practices. However, it would be sensible to contact ... first to make sure there is a practice on your chosen night as it is not unknown for us to skip a practice in certain circumstances, e.g Bank Holidays. You are assured of a friendly welcome.'
'We are men in Northern Ireland, from all walks of life, living reasonably close to the seaside town of Donaghadee on the North East corner of County Down, meeting every Monday evening for practice and enjoying concerts, church services, performances for charity events in locations one may not expect to see or hear a male voice choir. Competitions have been attended with many successes over the years but our greatest achevements have been the continued charity work and the enjoyment of choral singing with friends from all corners of the world.'
'The Choir can trace its roots back to the late 1800s and continued until the 1950s ... The present Choir was re-formed in 1965 by 13 men keen to see a revival of choral music in Dowlais, and that number rose to 120, reflecting the enthusiasm of the early days. Today the number of choristers registered is 60 ... We are very keen to recruit new choristers and give them the opportunity to experience the pleasure of singing in some wonderful venues with first class performers.'
'Members are drawn from all walks of life from Architects, Accountants, Bankers, Motor Engineers, School Masters, Farmers to Prison Officers and even a Tax Inspector.

A registered charity, the Choir performs a number of concerts each year raising significant sums for other charities and deserving causes.'
'Formed in 1957 in the Wemyss area of Fife, with a backing of the Coal Industry Social Welfare Organisation. It was a great outlet for the Miners and others who joined, being able to sing and socialise with like-minded men as and still is today a great pastime.'
'The choir’s repertoire is extremely varied and includes traditional male voice choir standards and old favourites, music from the shows, operas, and more well known popular pieces. The choir works very hard to keep its repertoire fresh and appealing to varied audiences. Now one of only a handful of original colliery male voice choirs surviving in the country, this choir continues to buck the trend in male voice choirs and attracts new members on a regular basis. Having a broad range of members the choir is able to boast a membership covering many age groups, young to old. With healthy membership numbers and an appealing repertoire we as a choir are well placed to continue providing musical entertainment to audiences nationwide.'
Formed in 1984: 'The Choir frequently performs at concerts in aid of charities. The members very willingly use their hobby, in the form of their love of music and singing, to help others in need ... As well as concerts, the Choir sings at weddings, funerals and regularly entertains coach tourists at a local hotel. The members of the Choir enjoy a strong friendship and camaraderie, particularly at their practice sessions, which take place twice a week'.

We have over 60 singers and give concerts throughout Cornwall and beyond, often for charitable organisations, and arrange concerts with other community choirs and musicians. We also take part in choir competitions and festivals.'
'Hartlepool Male Voice Choir had its beginnings in the late 1950s with a group of lads having a sing song after Rugby matches for Hartlepool Old Boys RFC ... You don’t have to be a musical genius to join us. Believe it or not, many choir members have no formal music training and most do not read music. The only requirements are for you to be able to sing in tune and show a commitment to the choir concerts and rehearsals. In return you can be certain of a friendly reception, a common interest in good music of all types, a great deal of fun and humour and trips to prestigious venues ...'

'Formed in 1922 by a small group of enthusiastic singers and since then has grown to its present strength of over sixty members, enjoying a national and international reputation for performance quality and entertainment value ... We offer exciting and varied programmes of popular opera choruses, spirituals, hymns and devotional pieces, traditional songs and ballads and choral arrangements of songs from musical shows and the current popular music scene, all performed in the spine-tingling four-part harmony which is unique to traditional male voice choral singing.'
'The Choir was formed in 1977 by a group of musically inclined enthusiasts. It got off to a fine start and not surprisingly, it was but a short time before the local townsfolk asked to hear them in concert. Since then, their repertoire has grown and their reputation has spread throughout the county and beyond ...'
'The choir was formed from members of the coal tip removal committee who were disbanding and were looking for another project to occupy the time taken during that period. They decided to form a choir, who would perform for charity, to give thanks to everybody who had contributed to the disaster fund that had been set up during the time of the Aberfan tragedy. The Choir at present has about 40 members and still travel to all parts of the country, and abroad, giving concerts to any charitable cause.'
