Welcome to our website!
The Sydney Welsh Choir has 80 members, male and female, drawn from all parts of the greater Sydney area.  Since 1978 we have been responsible for putting the Wales into NSW. Not all choir members were born in Wales; some have Welsh family links while others simply like being part of a group which sings with such evident enjoyment and enthusiasm to very appreciative audiences. The concert schedule is busy but enjoyable with around two weekend performances a month. The choir has sung at all the main performance venues in Sydney as well as at such famous overseas venues as York Minster, Canterbury and Winchester Cathedrals in England, the American National Cathedral in the USA, The Madeleine in Paris and Assisi Basilica in Italy. Since 1990 the choir has made six trips back to Wales, with performances in many of the main castles, cathedrals and concert halls there, as well as in many countries along the way.

Practices are held most Wednesday evenings from 7pm-9pm at the church hall of Concord Baptist Church, Carrington St, Concord just off Concord Rd near the end of the M4. The Sydney Welsh Choir is always happy to welcome visitors or potential new choristers at its practice sessions.   If you would like to know more please phone 02 9617 0401 or email our president, Rob Horlin, at jrhorlin@optusnet.com.au  for further information.

It's 2018 and we're back!
Sydney Welsh Choir rehearsals for 2018 began on Wednesday, 31st of January, with our Annual General Meeting, a shortened rehearsal and magnificent supper. It's a "little bit Miserables", a little bit yearning for Swansea Town, and a lot singing hearty old favourites for our next concert on St David's Day and preparing for our first tour of Victoria later in the year. It's great to be back!
Our sponsored community choir, Good Life Chorus, is also rehearsing and SWC choir president Rob represented us when Victor Dominello MP, the Member for Ryde and State Minister for Finance, dropped in to a rehearsal of Good Life Chorus. GLC is a daytime, dementia-friendly choir at West Ryde: Click here for more information about them.
