Rhos Male Voice Choir at the Maidment Auditorium
21 Apr 2023

The Rhos Male Voice Choir - Côr Meibion Rhosllannerchrugog - one of the most successful in Wales - will be singing at Shrewsbury School on Friday, May 19th 2023 at 7.30pm.

Shrewsbury School will welcome the Rhos Male Voice Choir on Friday, May 19 in the Maidment Auditorium at 7.30pm for what promises to be an unmissable evening of music.

Founded in 1891, Rhos Male Voice Choir is one of the most successful in Wales. In 2013 the choir took first place in the male voice choir competitions at the Llangollen International Eisteddfod, the National Eisteddfod and S4C’s ‘Côr Cymru’.

This unique hat-trick followed wins in the National Eisteddfod in 2011 and 2012. The choir also won again in Llangollen in 2015. The choir has travelled the world singing in America, Canada, and throughout Europe, and is regularly invited to sing the national anthems for Wales’ International rugby matches.

With ages ranging from 13 to 'well past 80', choristers come from just about every walk of life with very few having had any professional music training. Quite a few choristers have been members for more than 50 years, and many others have celebrated their 25th anniversary with the choir.
