Acclaimed Cardiff Male Choir makes its first appearance at Westbury Festival this year.

 

Founded in 1898, the choir is one of the oldest choirs in South Wales and sing a wide variety of songs, including Welsh hymns and arias, gospel numbers, jazz standards, West End showstoppers, timeless pop classics and even the odd latest hit!

Currently celebrating its 120th year, the choir is still going strong with over 40 members who regularly perform in the South Wales area. The choir is often invited to sing throughout the UK as part of festivals, tours, weddings and charity and corporate events.
