The ability to read music is desirable but not essential as all members are trained in the same way. We enjoy what we do, although we work hard to perform to a high standard.‘

‘The choristers ... have a busy practice and concert schedule which is often booked 12-18 months ahead. The choir also has commitments to associations of which it is a member, namely the Welsh Association of Male Voice Choirs, Ty Cerdd and The National Association of Choirs. Bi-annual visits to the Albert Hall for the Massed Voices concert are just one of the major commitments. A wide repertoire allows Choir programmes to be tailored by the conductor to match the venue and audience. Places of worship, village halls, town halls and major concert halls are examples of performance venues requiring differing programmes.’
