Cor Meibion Dyfnant / Dunvant Male Choir has the unique Achievement of 125 years of unbroken history and enjoys 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 Dunvant. It is the archetypal Welsh Choir that sprung naturally out of the community and the mould of the times.
Acknowledged universally as one of our more accomplished choirs and under the musical leadership of Jonathan Rogers since 2007 the choir has sustained its tradition of musical excellence. Its achievements are well known having won all 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 Kings Collage Cambridge, the Chapel of Harvard University, the Roy Thompson Hall in Toronto and in the ancient Cathedrals of Chichester, Exeter, Hereford and Gloucester.
Cor Meibion Dyfnant/Dunvant Male Choir pursues the philosophy that music above all else is a communicable happiness, and although local surnames dominate, local pride supports and nurtures it. The singing lake all great Welsh choirs excels with adrenaline flowing free, be it the polyphonic intricacies of Benjamin Britten or the compelling surge of Welsh hymns.
