It is 75 years since the founding of the Fron Choir to compete in the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod, itself founded in 1947.
You will find more information about the choir and its illustrious history here.
We welcome visitors to our rehearsals. You would be most welcome to join us on a Monday or Thursday evening but please be aware of the current regulations and be prepared to wear a mask throughout. Please let us know you would like to attend HERE. We look forward to welcoming you.
We are very sad to lose a long-standing and well-loved member of our brotherhood-in-song, Rolly Jones.
Rolly was a stalwart of the back-row 1st Tenor section for 40 years and is much missed. His smile was ever present and the joy he brought to every rehearsal and concert immeasurable. We send our deepest condolences to his family and dear friends, of which there are many but particularly one who stood beside him all those years, Tudor Evans.
Sleep well, Rolly . . .
As a choir, we would like to show our support for the people of Ukraine during this humanitarian crisis and we appeal to Russia to end its violent campaign in the country.
If you can, please donate whatever you feel appropriate at the Disasters Emergency Committee appeal site . . .

VOICES OF THE VALLEY - ECHOES
Our NEW CHART-TOPPING* album - available now
We are very happy to at last see the release of the sixth album in our Voices of the Valley series which was recorded in 2019 at The Forge Recording Studio, Oswestry, where we recorded all the previous Voices of the Valley albums.
The production team, producer Jon Cohen, engineer Al Unsworth and studio owner Phil Beaumont, along with our wonderful music team, Leigh, Jason and Owen worked tirelessly with the boys of the choir to complete the recording of the vocal lines.
Jon Cohen then scored, recorded the backing tracks and mastered the album ready for a launch in 2020 but, unfortunately, the pandemic struck and lockdown got in the way. Eventually, it was decided to launch the album on St. David's Day -1st March 2021 when it went straight to the top of the classical charts in the U.K.*
We are very proud that VOICES OF THE VALLEY - ECHOES carries on the standard and values of the previous five recordings in the Voices of the Valley series. It is full of new arrangements of audience favourites from our concert repertoire plus a couple of songs new to the choir.
For full track listings and to order your copy please visit the Recordings section of our shop.
We hope you will enjoy ECHOES as much as we did making it and thank you for your support for this album - it would not have been possible without it.
*Friday 5th March 2021 - VOICES OF THE VALLEY -ECHOES enters the Classical Artist & the Classical Combined Charts at No.1
