In 2018, at the International Choir Festival of Wales held in Cardiff, after winning the Young Voices category, the choir went on to win the main prize, the Sir Karl Jenkins Trophy, in the Choir of Choirs competition. In 2022, it won the Youth Category in S4C’s choir competition Côr Cymru. In June 2023, the choir successfully launched its second CD ‘Gwahoddiad’, and, a few weeks later, was successful at the Llangollen International Eisteddfod, winning the Children’s Folk Choir Competition. In January of this year, it took part in the recording of Grace Williams’ Missa Cambrensis, alongside the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, at Hoddinott Hall, Wales Millenium Centre, Cardiff.
