Music in Wales is often connected with male voice choirs, such as the Morriston Orpheus Choir and Treorchy Male Voice Choir, both enjoying a world wide reputation. This tradition of choral singing has been expressed through sporting events, especially in the country's national sport of rugby, which in 1905 saw the first singing of a national anthem, Wales' Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau, at the start of an international sporting encounter.

For forthcoming events, please visit the choir's website. Groups are welcome to watch rehearsals by prior arrangement.  Please check rehearsal times with the choir before including in your itineraries.  Choirs can also be booked to perform for your clients.  

Due to COVID-19 restrictions,  Male voice choir rehearsals and concerts are currently cancelled.  We suggest that you contact the choirs directly for the most up to date information for their future plans.
