About Us

Our Story

The Melbourne Welsh Male Voice Choir was formed in 1984 and since then it has grown from a small group of enthusiastic singers into one of Australia’s acclaimed male choirs.

There is a warm and welcoming culture within the choir and while we take our singing seriously, we don’t take ourselves seriously at all. In fact, we have a lot of fun!

The choir is busy with 8-10 performances each year, including performing at major venues such as the Melbourne Recital Centre. It is also well organised with a very capable and active organising committee.

The choir honours its Welsh roots by singing at least 25% of its repertoire in the Welsh language, Europe’s oldest living language. However, as a proud multicultural Australian Welsh choir we believe that good music is not limited to one language. Consequently recent concerts have included Welsh, English, South African, Italian, Latin, Maori, Aboriginal and German songs.

Many of our performances feature experienced and talented professional guest artists and each year we organise and run the Singer of the Year competition for promising young singers.

With regular national and international tours, this is a choir that is energetic and with a growing reputation for excellence.

Not bad for a bunch of blokes of varying musical experience, who simply like to get together each week to have a sing.

Musical Director – David Ashton-Smith OAM

David Ashton-Smith has been Musical Director since May 2016. David is well known in the Melbourne music scene and in 2016 was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) for services to music.

A classically trained singer, who rose to become principal baritone during his nine years with the English National Opera, he has performed and taught in many institutions on his return to Australia and brings a wealth of experience to his role with the choir. For David, this is his first all-male choir.

Accompanist – Simon Walters

Simon Walters, our accompanist, emigrated to Melbourne in April 2010 from the UK, lured by his wife who is Australian. A professional musician since 1994, he is a practiced sight reader in a variety of styles and is still in demand in the UK for arrangements, transcriptions and backing tracks, despite being on the opposite side of the world.

Since arriving in Australia, Simon has been Musical Director of the Frankston Ladies’ Choir, accompanied the Melbourne Welsh Male Choir, done a saucy cabaret with international artiste Isabel Hertaeg, and played in various functions and event gigs with a multitude of bands.

One thing’s for sure, life is never dull finding out where the next bit of work is coming from, and Simon looks forward to working more closely with both choirs in the years to come.

President – Kevin Seerup

Kevin joined the Melbourne Welsh Male Choir in 2015. He has a background in musical theatre, having played in Oliver (as Bill Sykes), Rockin’ Robin (as The Sorcerer), and taking the lead role of Don Quixote in Man of La Mancha, and Joseph’s father Jacob in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat.

Kevin is a Kiwi but has lived in Australia for many years and has dual nationality except when the All Blacks are playing the Wallabies. He runs a software development business, is soon to be married to Heather and, when not singing, enjoys running, tennis and skiing.

Previous Music Directors

When it launched in 1984 the choir flourished under the musical direction of Bill Mead, a former tenor with the Welsh National Opera. On his retirement the choir elected to secure the services of a professional conductor and accompanist to lead the choir into the next decades – a bold decision and commitment for an amateur group.

From early 1995 until September 2000 Phillip Smith provided the musical direction for the choir. During that time he introduced a new onstage uniform, broadened the repertoire and raised the musical capability and performance quality of the choir. For this he received wide praise from audiences and peers alike. During his tenure both he and our lovely accompanist Linda O’Brien both performed on stage completely without music!

Douglas Heywood OAM assumed the mantle of Music Director at the end of 2000 and, based on the feedback from audiences at our concerts, he enhanced the musical development of the choir and improved its tone and balance. One of the best known and respected Music Directors in Melbourne, Doug is probably best known for his annual role as Choir Master of the “Carols by Candlelight” concert at the Myer Music Bowl. Surprisingly, in a long and distinguished career conducting many choirs and orchestras, ours was the first male voice choir he had conducted. The choir benefited greatly from the experience, which Doug brought to the role and the strong relationships he had within the music community in Australia.  Doug used one of his other roles, as music director with the Cammerata orchestra to bring the choir and orchestra together with some famous artists for a number of concerts at the Hamer Hall, including a memorable one with Judith Durham, which is featured on one of our CDs

Doug resigned at the end of 2006 and Grazina Pranauskas took over the music director’s role briefly, early in 2007 and conducted the choir for a number of concerts.

Lucas de Jong was appointed in September 2007. A highly accomplished professional singer with more than 20 years Australian and international experience as a principal operatic baritone and classical voice teacher, Lucas brought a new perspective to the Music Director’s role. During Lucas’ time he increased the operatic content of the repertoire, led the choir on a highly successful tour of Austria and was instrumental in one of the choir’s most successful performances with Teddy Tahu Rhodes at the Melbourne Recital Centre.

Links with Wales

Whilst the choir receives strong audience support from the Welsh community and maintains a comprehensive Welsh repertoire, it now attracts a widely diversified audience because of the very breadth and variety of its repertoire.

The choir has brought to Australia conductors of the calibre of Alwyn Humphreys MBE, (Emeritus Musical Director of the world famous Morriston Orpheus Choir); Glynne Jones, (the late Musical Director of the Pendyrus Choir); and Colin Jones, (Musical Director of the Colin Jones Singers and formerly founder of the Rhos Male Choir). These musicians have directed the Melbourne Welsh Male Voice Choir both in concerts and workshops, to impart their experience in Welsh Choral styles and choral singing.

Alwyn Humphreys, probably the best known of this group, has become a very close and supportive friend and in 2003 graciously accepted the choir’s invitation to become patron of the Melbourne Welsh Male Choir.

The “Singer of The Year “Competition

In 1993 the choir initiated this annual competition as a performance contest for singers up to 35 years of age. Its objective is to encourage and enhance the performance capability of young singers by providing them with the opportunity to perform and compete in front of a large audience at the choir’s Annual Concert each September. The finalists share in a substantial prize provided jointly by the choir and our sponsors. In addition they have the opportunity to appear in the choir’s major concerts and recordings as solo artists.

On average, 25-35 young singers audition for this event each year. In the most recent competition in 2021, which was all online due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the three finalists selected to perform were Amelia Wawrzon, Michael Dimovski and Samantha Hargreaves, with Samantha taking the honours on this occasion.

Australian Concert Tours

The Melbourne Welsh Male Voice Choir has performed in many of the major venues in Australia including the Sydney Opera House, Hobart’s Theatre Royal and Federation Concert Hall and Geelong’s Performing Arts Centre.

In Melbourne, the choir has sung at the Hamer Hall, the Recital Centre, the National Gallery at the Arts Centre, Melbourne Town Hall, Robert Blackwood Hall, the State Library, Government House, National Tennis Centre (now the Rod Laver Arena) and the Regent theatre.

In addition the choir frequently performs in country centres from Warrnambool and Hamilton in the west through Bendigo and Moama in the north to Traralgon and Bairnsdale in the east and for many other towns and communities closer to Melbourne.

Overseas Tours

The choir has accepted invitations to perform overseas on seven occasions.


In 1997 the choir was invited to compete and perform in the South African International Eisteddfod at Roodepoort, Johannesburg. The choir also sang in Durban, Cape Town and several regions of Johannesburg, and received standing ovations for its singing, empathy with the audiences, and unique repertoire which included African songs and chants which the choir had learned specifically for the trip.

On this tour the choir sang in concert with the Durban Male Choir, The South African Welsh Male Choir and the Cwmbach Choir from Wales. The choir was honoured to be the first international white choir to perform with the renowned black South African choir – Cenestra Male Choir, and has formed a lasting bond with this talented group.

Venues as diverse as a tent in Johannesburg, a boarding school hall in Durban, a Zulu kraal in the Valley of a Thousand Hills, and the Baxter Theatre in Cape Town – all resounded to the choir’s harmonies.

The Choir’s trip to Austria

In 2014 the Melbourne Welsh Male Choir continued its tradition of travelling overseas to a Music festival every few years. The venue was Salzburg, Austria and the festival was the Cantus Salisburgensis.

Salzburg is a city known worldwide for its music. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, one of Austria’s greatest sons, was born there in 1756, and many great masters of the Classical Era lived and worked there as well. Salzburg’s orchestras and choirs carry on these great musical traditions on the stages and in the concert halls of the city today.

Our choir was invited to share in celebrating these rich musical and cultural traditions by travelling to Salzburg for the Cantus Salisburgensis 2014 music festival.

Musicians from around the world come to Salzburg each year to perform massed choral selections under the direction of Salzburg Cathedral’s Music Director, János Czifra.

The festival takes place each year in July.

In addition to singing in beautiful and historic venues such as Salzburg Cathedral, Golling Fortress and the Mozarteum, the choir was able to experience the delights of the city featured in the “Sound of Music”.

The decision to attend the Cantus Salisburger Music Festival was a brave one for the Choir, since our experience and tradition (as our audiences will know), relates to singing smaller and more varied pieces of music such as hymns, negro spirituals, songs from musical theatre and opera etc., without the use of music scores on stage.

Nonetheless our Music Director felt we had the ability and, with his operatic experience and support, we were able to acquit ourselves well with the three major pieces

  • Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy, which is really a piano concerto with orchestra where the choir and soloists only sing (in German) for the final four minutes.
  • Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus (in English), which was familiar to some of our Choristers who had been part of the choir at Channel 9‘s “Carols by Candlelight”.
  • Mozart’s “Missa Solemnis” K.337 was his last complete mass and is sung in Latin. The complete piece takes more than 20 minutes to perform, however as part of the Mass it is split into sections Kyrie, Gloria, Credo, Sanctus, Benedictus and Agnus Dei.

Our choir performed the Beethoven and Handel pieces in conjunction with the artists from Wesleyan College Macon, St James Episcopal Church Georgia and the National Philharmonic Choir of Washington together with the Varner International Orchestra in the Mozarteum (Herbert von Karajan’s favourite music venue).

The following morning we embarked on the “Sound of Music Tour” bus to view, from across the man made lake, the Leopoldskron Palace where the “Sound of Music” was filmed, then on to the Gazebo in Hellbrunn and the wedding church in Mondsee – where there was an actual wedding taking place!

Following a beautiful lunch a local guide took us up a mountain path to see the beautiful Golling waterfall before we embarked on the coach for our concert at the Golling Fortress.

The concert featured the Wesleyan College girls as well as ourselves. The venue was a little cramped but the small audience thoroughly enjoyed it and called for an encore.

Sunday morning was bright and sunny showing Salzburg at its best.

Description: Macintosh HD 2:Pictures:iPhoto Library:Masters:2014:08:05:20140805-120147:DSC_2101.JPGRehearsal was at 8:30 a.m. for the choir and orchestra, in the rehearsal room at the Cathedral. We then all trooped up the stairs to the organ loft of the cathedral, way above the congregation. The cathedral was completely full for the 10:00 o’clock Missa Solemnis, which went off without a hitch. The cathedral choristers were excellent and we were able to follow them in the trickier passages. It was an exhilarating experience.

Our wives and partners, on the floor of the cathedral, thought the whole choir, soloists and orchestra sounded wonderful. A final look around, then off to the farewell dinner at Salzburg Fortress perched way above the city.

DSC_2225The tour continued to Vienna via the beautiful Melk Abbey where the choir again sang in the organ loft to the delight of the tourists in the Abbey. Vienna saw the choir giving an informal concert at St Peter’s church, in the centre of the city and performing a’cappella on the steps of the famous Schönbrunn Palace.

A quick visit and impromptu performance at an old people’s home and it was off to Gumpoldskirchen for the final dinner at a typical Austrian Heurigen, a traditional meal and of course an “afterglow” to end a memorable tour.

2017 Tour of Cornwall and Wales

The choir undertook an exhausting but very rewarding trip to participate in the 2017 Cornwall International Male Voice Choir Festival, currently the largest male voice choir festival in the world with over 60 Choirs and 3000 choristers taking part.

30 of the usual 50+ MWMC members took part and, together with some partners, enjoyed the singing, social interaction and sight seeing offered in that beautiful part of the United Kingdom.

We performed at the Eden project, in Truro Cathedral, the Hall for Cornwall and in St Austell and Bude Methodist Churches. The choir proudly sang in each of its allotted shared concerts and did well in the competition element held in the Hall for Truro, coming 6th out of 13 choirs which included several from America, Canada and Europe.

We packed 11 concerts into 12 days (albeit sometimes just a bracket of 4 or 5 songs in concerts with other choirs) and received ovations wherever we performed, so little wonder that many of the touring party extended their tour to relax and to enjoy the delights of the UK and Europe before returning home.

At the conclusion of the festival we travelled to Wales for a joint concert with the Maesteg Gleemen, and in Swansea, what we had expected to be a quiet informal get together with the Morriston Orpheus turned into a mini concert which was filmed for S4C the Welsh language TV station.

Both choirs sang a bracket or two before (our patron and the former MD of the Orpheus) Alwyn Humphreys conducted the joint choir in “American Trilogy” – which was a fitting end to a wonderful evening.

In Bristol we had the opportunity to visit the SS Great Britain, the first steam driven ocean liner, which has been painstakingly restored after being retrieved from the seabed in the Falklands Islands.

That evening we performed with the Bristol Male Voice Choir at St Bonadventure’s Church, Egerton.

Our final concert was with our old friends and our deputy MD’s former choir –Weybridge Male Voice Choir. The joint concert had been sold out weeks before and in front of a packed church, both choirs rose to the occasion and were given a standing ovation at the end of the concert.

It was a fitting end to a marvelous tour and a tribute to the organizing skill and commitment of our tour manager – Mike Lyons who orchestrated the whole shebang.

As our MD said

“I was indeed very proud of the boy’s efforts and their ability to come ‘up’ each time we sang – 10 concerts in 11 days – quite demanding.  The standard of their work was admirable.  A very good overall experience was had for all those who made the trip, and many fond memories of a well-organized and remarkable ‘group’ time”.

Kathaumixw International Music Festival

In 2002 the choir travelled to compete at the Kathaumixw International Music Festival in Powell River, 160 kilometres north of Vancouver, in British Columbia, Canada.

The week-long festival involving singers from all around the world culminated with a massed choir of 1200 voices, performing with orchestra to a large and appreciative audience in the town’s indoor stadium in Powell River. The choir made a lot of friends both personally and chorally during the festival, and made even more on the tour of the lower Rockies region, which took place the following week. This tour took us from the ski resort of Whistler to the lakes at Vernon and Salmon Arm, with the choir singing to packed audiences and standing ovations wherever it performed.

The choir at the Albert Hall London

 In 2008 the choir accepted an invitation from the London Welsh Male Voice Choir (http://www.londonwelshmvc.org/ ) to be part of their prestigious 21st Festival of Male Choirs (1000 voices) concert at the Royal Albert Hall, London on 18th October. It was a unique experience to be singing with 14 other choirs, including 4 other overseas choirs (from Hong Kong, Slovenia, New Zealand and Boston) in such a wonderful and historic venue.

In addition to this major concert in one of the world’s most famous auditoriums, the choir gave concerts and received standing ovations in a number of venues in England and Wales.

On the Isle of Anglesey the choir sang with the renowned Hogia’r Ddwylan choir (the name literally means “the boys from two shores” and refers to the fact that its members come from villages adjacent to the Menai Straits, on the fringes of Snowdonia, one of the most beautiful areas of Wales. In Anglesey (and Oswestry) we had the pleasure of being conducted by our patron Alwyn Humphreys. It was a nostalgic moment for Alwyn, since Moriah chapel, the concert venue in Anglesey, was where he was first married!

Ray Kitto took over the baton for our performances with the Maesteg Gleemen in Maesteg Town Hall and with Ray’s former choir in Weybridge.

Special Events and Performances

13th Commonwealth Law Conference

The choir was honoured to be selected to perform at the opening ceremony of the 13th Commonwealth Law Conference, held at the Melbourne Convention Centre in June 2003. The choir’s opening choruses and anthems, prior to Prime Minister John Howard’s welcoming address, roused the gathering of the greatest legal minds in the Commonwealth, from their early morning lethargy. The choir then performed a second set of songs representative of the Commonwealth countries in attendance, which included our own unique rendition of the South African chant “Shosholoza” and the beautiful New Zealand song “Hine e Hine”.

Victoria State Library

The invitation to reopen, at a formal dinner, the totally refurbished domed reading room of the Victoria State Library, allowed us to relive the experiences, we had, when we sang at its closure. The choir once again sang from the galleries far above the diners, and the dome reverberated with our harmonies. Because of the resonance and the acoustics associated with the dome it was a difficult environment in which to hear the other choir members, but the end result, as reported by the diners at ground level, was awesome!

Male Choirs of Association Australia Concert

In 2012 the choir took part in the third Male Choirs of Association Australia Concert in Dallas Brooks Hall in Melbourne. Under the baton of our patron Alwyn Humphreys, and accompanied by the award winning Kew Brass band, choristers from a number of male choirs from around Australia, lifted the roof of the old masonic hall

150th Anniversary of the Eureka rebellion

When the choir accepted the Victorian Premier’s invitation to perform at the 150th Anniversary of the Eureka rebellion in Ballarat, it was the first time the choir had sung at daybreak, in the open air, at the historic site in Ballarat. The choir’s powerful rendition of “World in Union” echoing through the mist rising from the lake in the cold clear morning provided a fitting close to the simple yet moving ceremony.

Melbourne Commonwealth Games

For the Melbourne Commonwealth Games, the Welsh team adopted the Melbourne Welsh Choir as their local ambassadors. The choir welcomed the team in song, at a function held on the 17th Floor of the RACV Club. After a brief performance, the 250-strong team of Welsh athletes and support staff all had tears in their eyes, as the choir led them in the Welsh National Anthem and finished with the song, which everyone in Wales learns in primary school, “Calon Lan”.

2014 MCAA concert

The 2014 MCAA concert was held in Canberra when a record number of more than 400 choristers representing 14 male choirs from around Australia and New Zealand filled the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) arena with their sounds and harmonies. Under the baton of Dr. Guy Jansen and accompanied by the band of the Royal Military College, Duntroon, the audience of over 1300 were treated to a rare Sunday afternoon musical feast.

Hamer Hall performances

As a result of the choir’s performances at the Melbourne Arts Centre over the years, the choir enjoys a biennial invitation to perform a Morning Melodies program which requires the choir to give two one hour performances one at 11:00 a.m. and another at 1:00 p.m.

The choir’s most recent Hamer Hall appearance was as part of the Morning Melodies program in April 2015.  The program performed by the choir was particularly poignant since, at the specific request of the Victorian Arts Centre, it featured songs from the war years to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landings and Australia’s involvement in World War 1 and 2.

The largest audience for Morning Melodies this year enjoyed a very different choir program. It included medleys of songs from our “Till the Boys come home” CD plus two new songs “For the fallen” and “In Flanders fields”, both featuring a trumpet accompaniment, which brought tears to the eyes of many in the audience.

In addition, our soloist and one of our “Singer of the Year” competition winners – Lee Abrahmsen – lit up the audience with songs from the war years made famous by Vera Lynn.

Diffordd y t’wyllwch, tyrd a’r dydd
Gad i’m ddod o’r nos yn rhydd.

Ysbryd y nos rho d’olau mwyn.
Ysbryd y nos rho i’m dy swyn
Ysbryd y nos fel angel y dydd
Ysbryd y nos, enaid y pridd

Ac ynno yn y dyffryn tawel
Mi glywaf gan yn swn yr awel
A neges hud y geirier
yn hedfan dros y brnier
Tyrd ysbryd y nos

Ysbryd y nos, tyrd yma’n awr
Gwasgara’r ofnau cyn daw’r wawr
Diffordd y t’wyllwch, tyrd a’r dydd
Gad i’m ddod o’r nos yn rhydd.

Ysbryd y nos, tyrd yma’n awr
Gwasgara’r ofnau cyn daw’r wawr
Diffordd y t’wyllwch, tyrd a’r dydd
Gad i’m ddod o’r nos yn rhydd.
