our history

Step into the captivating tale of the Llantrisant Male Voice Choir, where history echoes through the cobbled streets of our beloved hilltop town. For a century now, we’ve stood as proud custodians of tradition, our voices weaving a tapestry of Welsh culture that resonates far and wide.

From our humble beginnings over a century ago, our choir has become a cherished cornerstone of our community, with a legacy that stretches back to our very first concert amidst the flickering lights of a wax works exhibition on St. David’s Day in 1898.

Through times of turmoil and triumph, our voices have remained steadfast, transcending borders to share our passion for music with audiences across 11 countries. Yet, our roots remain firmly planted in the rich soil of Llantrisant, where our melodies continue to echo through the ages, a testament to the enduring spirit of our town and its people.

about us

Diverse in backgrounds yet united in harmony, our choir is a vibrant tapestry of men spanning generations and experiences. From the spirited enthusiasm of our youngest member, a mere 21 years young, to the seasoned grace of our eldest, a remarkable 88 years, we stand together with a singular purpose: to share the gift of music and spread joy wherever our voices may carry us.

Our journey has seen us grace illustrious stages, from the regal halls of royalty to the iconic arenas of global acclaim. Whether performing at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall, the historic Cardiff Castle, or the electric atmosphere of the Millennium Stadium, each moment is infused with the passion and dedication of our members.

But our repertoire extends beyond grand stages, as we eagerly lend our voices to a myriad of events throughout the year. From formal concert performances that captivate audiences to community gatherings, charity fundraisers, and corporate engagements, we relish every opportunity to connect through music. And with weddings becoming a cherished specialty, we take pride in our polished appearances, donning attire that befits the occasion with grace and style.

With every note we sing, we carry the spirit of camaraderie, the joy of song, and the commitment to uplift hearts with our music. As we continue our musical journey, we invite you to join us on this extraordinary adventure, where the power of harmony knows no bounds.
