Victoria Welsh Choir

Now in its 40th year of music making, the choir presents over twenty concerts a year mainly in Victoria. Most of the choristers are from the Melbourne area but there is also a thriving Bendigo chapter and a budding Ballarat group. The choir regularly tours interstate (South Australia July 2018) and internationally. In 2012 the choir toured Wales and England and helped represent Australasia in a 520- voices pre-Olympics London Welsh Choir of the World concert at the Royal Festival Hall with Bryn Terfel. In 2016, there was a very successful tour to Wales and Worcester. Planning for the 2020 Tour is under way with four concerts booked in Wales.

Apart from this annual concert, the choir also performs with stars like Marina Prior, Silvie Paladino, David Hobson and Roy Best. The choir is well known for its professionalism, humour and entertaining engagement with audiences young and old alike.

At the heart of Victoria Welsh Male Choir’s repertoire is the music which has earned Wales the title “Land of Song”, such as stirring hymns, age-old ballads of young (and not-so-young) love, and age-old folk songs.
