Vancouver Welsh Men’s Choir

Vancouver Welsh Men's Choir

The Vancouver Welsh Men’s Choir is an all-male choir. It has around 100 members that perform a mix of traditional Celtic music and modern songs.

The same as many other choirs and performing arts groups in the Lower Mainland, the Vancouver Welsh Men’s Choir cancelled several shows due to COVID-19. However, the choir returned with some in-person performances in December 2021.

As of mid-February, 2022, the choir doesn’t plan to perform at any concerts this spring. Hopefully it’ll be able to resume performances soon though.

 


For concert tickets and full details about the group, see the official Vancouver Welsh Men’s Choir website.


 

The Vancouver Welsh Men’s Choir

Founded in 1980, the Vancouver Welsh Men’s Choir is a group of auditioned all-male amateur singers. They are led by two professional musicians: Jonathan Quick and Karen Lee-Morlang.

The Choir performs up to 18 or so concerts a year including benefit concerts to raise money for charity. They also have a Community Outreach Program which helps those who otherwise would not have the funds to attend their performances.
