Colin Jones established this North Wales male choir in 1991, with members travelling up to 100 miles to rehearse in Betws-y-Coed.

"Choristers young and old, Eisteddfod winners and soloists, and experienced voices sing together in the choir," says Jones.

"We've created quite an enviable reputation at home and abroad and have toured extensively performing in Singapore, Australia, USA, Canada, Finland, Malta and recently in France. We've got full concert diary for the foreseeable future!"

The choir's trademark is the ability to provide choristers and soloists in concert and has been the subject of a TV film capturing the work of the musical director and 'his' choir.

"The 50-strong choir are regular supporters of cultural events in Wales, for example the National Eisteddfod," says Jones.

"We've had so many highlights, making friends at home and abroad, performing to packed in the world's leading concert venues but one of the best was singing Wales to victory against Scotland at the Millennium Stadium!"
