Melbourne Welsh Male Choir

The youngest of the Welsh Male choirs in Victoria was formed in 1984 by a group of mainly Welsh migrants who wished to bring the culture of their homeland to their new home.

While maintaining the Welsh choral singing tradition the Melbourne Welsh Choir created its own unique “Australian” sound and style and continues to do so. Our patron – Alwyn Humphreys has said of the choir “it is the best Welsh choir heard outside of Wales”

A little more about us

The youngest of the Welsh Male choirs in Victoria was formed in 1984 by a group of mainly Welsh migrants who wished to bring the culture of their homeland to their new home.

While maintaining the Welsh choral singing tradition the Melbourne Welsh Choir created its own unique “Australian” sound and style and continues to do so. Our patron – Alwyn Humphreys has said of the choir “it is the best Welsh choir heard outside of Wales”

As befits any forward thinking organisation, the choir accepts choristers from any part of the world and sings music from all parts of the music spectrum from African protest chants like “Senzenina” or a New Zealand lullaby such as “Hine e Hine” to rock songs like “Somebody to love” or Mozart’s “Missa Solemnis” (which the choir sang in Salzburg).

Within this website we hope to give you a glimpse of what our audiences, prospective clients and prospective choristers can expect to experience.
