Brythoniaid Male Voice Choir

Biography: In June 1964 with fifteen members Meirion Jones formed the male voice choir, and due to the encouragement received  commenced to attract new members.

From the outset, competing was an integral part of the Choirs activities. Their first competition was at the Llanffestiniog jubilee Eisteddfod in 1965. Following success at this Eisteddfod it was decided to make 1966 the starting point for a sustained period of competition which indeed continues to the present day. Between 1966 and 1974 the Choirs success could be compared to that of a modern day football team with the following statistics: 26 competitions, 19 first prizes, 3 second prizes.

In 1972 the Choir won first prize at the Butlins Eisteddfod.

But it hasn’t all been competition. In 1975 the Choir made an historic trip behind the ‘ Iron Curtain’ and visited Hungary where they appeared before a panel of Hungary’s most eminent musicians and were awarded a Diploma from the Academy of Culture for their performance. Since this first historic trip the Choir has toured far and wide, which have included two tours of America, two tours of Belgium. Two visits to the Interceltique Festival in Lorient and several tours to Ireland and Scotland. Further National Eisteddfod successes occurred in 1977, 2002 and 2005.

The Brythoniaid have many records and C.D’s.

To those who have heard the Brythoniaid Male Voice choir singing will agree that it has an unique sound which has given enjoyment to a huge number of people over the years and long may this continue.
