Frequently asked questions

Is there an audition?

Forget the horrors of audition – there isn’t one! Only a short voice test to allow the musical director to place you in the right section for you.

Should I be able to read music?

The ability to read music is not important – although some experience would obviously be an advantage. All the music is taught by rote - a mechanical process of memory using copies of the music during rehearsal. Choristers are able to listen to and download rehearsal pieces of new music via the 'Members' page on the website.

Do the choir sing from memory?

Yes, by tradition every piece is committed to memory. Copies are not used on the stage.

Who can join?

Anyone can! We have members of all ages, from all over Wales and beyond and from all walks of life.

Do you have to speak Welsh?

No. The majority of our members don't speak a single word of Welsh but still enjoy learning and singing the Male Voice Choir classics, in the Welsh language. All music is taught by our Musical Director who goes through the pronunciation of each piece throughly, as well as recording lyrics for choristers to practice on the members area.

How many concerts are there every year?
