Founded in 1891, Rhos Male Voice Choir is one of the most successful in Wales, most recently winning the male voice choir section at the International Eisteddfod in Llangollen in 2015. In 2013 the choir enjoyed a unique hat-trick of success taking first place in the male voice choir competitions at the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod, the National Eisteddfod and the S4C Côr Cymru TV show. This followed wins in the National Eisteddfod in 2011 and 2012.
The choir has travelled the world singing in America, Canada, and throughout Europe and in 2014 launched a CD of Christmas music. With ages ranging from 16 to “well past 80”, the choir is based in Rhosllannerchrugog, and every year raises many thousands of pounds for local and national charities. New musical director James Llewelyn Jones took over in March 2016 and has introduced new and challenging pieces to the choir repertoire.
