Most of us have heard of Welsh male voice choirs by repute, many of us have had the pleasure of hearing them first hand at a Welsh rugby match but now Adderbury is very pleased to welcome the renowned Oxford Welsh Male Voice Choir to perform in St Mary’s Church at 7.30 pm.

St. Mary’s is a beautiful Church in the middle of the village and is noted for its wonderful acoustics, which will beautifully compliment the magical sound of this renowned Welsh Male Voice Choir.

Equally at home in village halls or cathedrals, the Oxford Welsh has a loyal following in and around Oxford.  They aim to perform, on average, one concert a month for charitable causes, in this case, in aid of FOSMA (Friends of St Mary’s Adderbury).  Beyond Oxfordshire, the choir has performed in many prestigious venues including St. David’s Hall, The Millennium Centre and the Principality Stadium, in Cardiff, as well as Birmingham Town Hall, Manchester Arena, Westminster Abbey and many more.

The choir was formed in 1928 by Welshmen who had come to Oxford looking for work at the William Morris car factory and Pressed Steel. Today the choir is more mixed.  Many are English (although some may have a few drops of the Celtic blood!)  As a Welsh choir they sing in the traditional 4-part male voice

As a Welsh choir they sing in the traditional 4-part male voice style (1st and 2nd Tenor, Baritone and Bass) and a good proportion of their repertoire is in the Welsh language.
