30 Challenges

On the 29th May, the Choir had a visit from a very special lady, Bethan Wynne Phillips. Bethan is accompanist for the Amman Valley Male Voice Choir, and she celebrates her 30th birthday in 2020 (the same year that the Amman choir itself turns 30), and as part of the celebrations Bethan has chosen to undertake 30 various fund-raising activities on behalf of the Amman choir’s nominated charity, MIND Cymru.

One of the challenges is to obtain 30 ‘selfies’ with 30 South Wales Male Voice Choirs, and CMC was delighted to help Bethan achieve her goal.

To get further details of Bethan’s 30 challenges and to donate to her charity, visit:

Penllyn Village Hall

For the third consecutive year the choir helped the villagers of Penllyn to celebrate St David’s Day. In doing so the choir has enabled the village to purchase not just one but two defibrillators. A good time was had by all and after the event we retired to the Red Fox for an informal sing-song.

Cardiff Male Choir Weddings

Cardiff Male Choir Weddings

Cardiff Male Choir are honoured to perform at weddings across South Wales (and beyond) every year, and we’ve been blessed as a choir to add that special touch to so many couples wedding days.

In December 2017, Cardiff Male Choir sang at Jonathan and Lucy’s 1940s inspired wedding which has recently been featured on the Love My Dress website.

“We had the magnificent Cardiff Male Choir to accompany the hymnal singing at the church and to entertain our guests back at Rosedew. Since our friends Beck and Rhys got married and we witnessed their incredible choir, we knew it was something that would be pretty high on our lists of wants. CMC did not disappoint. They were so welcoming at the rehearsal we attended and looked and sounded amazing on the big day. Personal highlights were the Eli Jenkins Prayer, It’s Not Unusual by Tom Jones and seeing Wayne cry to Band of Brothers.”

The choir have now closed their books for 2018, but we are taking wedding bookings for 2019 and beyond. Why not get in touch if you’d like to book the choir for your special day? Here are some more snaps from weddings over the last year.

Open Rehearsal

Phil Redmond

It is with deepest sadness that we announce that Phil Redmond, part of our Tenor 2 section and the choir’s Event Secretary passed away at Christmas. It was a huge shock to all of us here at Cardiff Male Choir. Phil was a wonderful member of our choir, loved and well respected by all of us. His enthusiasm for the choir knew no bounds and he drove the choir forward immensely as our Events Secretary. Phil will be hugely missed and the choir wish to send their sympathies and best wishes to Marilyn, Phil’s wife, and all of their family.

Phil’s funeral will be held at Glenwood Church, Circle Way West, Llanedeyrn, Cardiff CF23 6UW on Saturday the 13th of January at 10:15am.
