Croeso i’n gwefan. (Welcome to our website). 

The Guernsey Welsh Male Voice Choir was first formed in 2003 under the guise of “Welsh Boys Aloud”, when a group of Welsh expatriates from the Guernsey Rugby Club decided the time had come for Guernsey to experience the unique sound of a Welsh male voice choir.

 

The choir was renamed the Guernsey Welsh Male Voice Choir in 2014 and has a Welsh and non-Welsh membership of some 40 individuals.

Under the musical directorship of Fiona le Tissier, and the musical accompaniment of John Morris, the choir continues to go from strength to strength.

Since those formative years, the choir has progressed in terms of its membership and development of a varied repertoire. Over the years, the choir has:

 

  • visited the Rennes music festival
  • hosted touring Welsh male choirs on their visits to Guernsey
  • been a regular participant in the Guernsey Eisteddfod
  • sung at local retirement/care homes as part of its support of the local community
  • performed at private celebratory functions
  • held its own gala concerts as part of its fund raising activities in support of its local nominated charity, which is selected by the choir each year
  • launched its first CD – proceeds from sales go to support the choir’s charity of the year

The choir was selected to perform as part of the 120 strong male voice choir which entertains the crowds prior to the home Six Nations games at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff. The choir was due to participate at the Wales v Scotland match on 14th March 2020, but the game was postponed due to the Coronavirus outbreak. It is currently planned for the choir to appear at the same fixture in 2022.

If you require any further information or are interested in becoming a member of the choir, please contact our Secretary, Terry March; phone numbers and e-mail address can be found on the “Contact” page.
