DUNVANT MALE CHOIR | CÔR MEIBION DYFNANT
The Oldest Continuously Singing Welsh Choir
Côr Meibion Dyfnant / Dunvant Male Choir has the unique achievement of 128 years of unbroken history, enjoying the distinction of being the oldest in Wales with a continuous history. It was formed in January 1895 by a group of miners, steelworkers and quarrymen from the members of Ebenezer Chapel. It is the archetypal Welsh Choir that sprung naturally out of its community and the mould of the times.
Acknowledged as one of the nation’s more accomplished choirs, under the musical leadership of Jonathan Rogers since 2007, the choir has sustained its tradition of musical excellence. Its achievements are many having won all of the major choral competitions open to the nation’s male choirs. The choir has performed as the sole male choir at the Royal Albert Hall, the Chapel of King’s College Cambridge, the Chapel of Harvard University, the Roy Thompson Hall in Toronto and in the ancient Cathedrals of Chichester, Exeter, Gloucester and Hereford.
Côr Meibion Dyfnant / Dunvant Male Choir believes that music above all else is a communicable happiness.
