The Toronto Welsh Male Voice Choir has been around for 23 years, and keeps the tradition of Welsh male-voice choral singing alive in Canada. Those who attend their concerts are in for a treat, as the choir performs traditional Welsh music, Broadway tunes, operatic arias, Canadian folk, and popular songs – all sung by heart. We are assured that the concert will be very entertaining, and is suitable for all ages.

About the Choir      

The Toronto Welsh Male Voice Choir (TWMVC) was established in 1995 when its founding member and first president, Gwyn Roberts, gathered together a group of like-minded men of Welsh heritage to kindle the spirit of traditional Welsh male voice singing in their adopted country.   Although many of the current members still lay claim to Welsh connections, the TWMVC has members from a variety of ethnic backgrounds.  The choir proudly draws on the great Welsh tradition of singing songs born of the mountains and valleys of Wales. At the same time it emphasizes a multicultural context in its broad repertoire including spirituals; operatic arias, Canadian folk songs as well as Broadway show tunes and contemporary music. Their blend of traditional and contemporary music, all sung off book, appeals to a broad audience.

The Choir has performed in churches, cathedrals and concert halls throughout Ontario, Quebec and New York State. In August 2002 and July 2013 the choir completed highly successful tours of Wales. During July 2005 they toured the Maritimes where they performed five concerts for appreciative audiences in Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. In September 2008, the choir was invited to take part in a combined choir of 400 voices at the prestigious Carnegie Hall in New York City and in 2010 the choir had a very successful tour of the Canadian Rockies.  The choir was privileged to perform as the headline choir at the North American Festival of Wales in Rochester New York August 31 to September 3, 2017.   In July, 2018 the choir completed a 10 day concert tour in Newfoundland.  Our concert repertoire includes the simple message that what we have in common with one another far outweighs our differences. Our common ground is our humanity, and best expressed by what we at the TWMVC do best – promoting choral traditions that have enriched the human experience through the ages.
