Barry Male Voice Choir has been entertaining music lovers for over 100years. They meet weekly for practice and travel wherever the music takes them raising thousands of pounds for local charities. There are plenty of social events and camaraderie not to mention the opportunity to travel across the U.K. and Europe with the choir. They are fresh from a resoundingly successful concert in Llandaff Cathedral which raised thousands of pounds for the pancreatic cancer research fund. The most common feedback from new choristers is
“ Really enjoying the singing. Only wish I’d done this years ago”

Glamorgan BrewingLifeblood
In 2016 BMVC was approached to provide the backing track to an advertisement being created to promote a local brewery – Glamorgan Brewing Co. – who are based in Llantrisant. The advertisement is targeted specifically at web and social media channels so is not expected to be seen on mainstreamTV – the choir sang a song called ‘O Gymru’
 (Oh Wales!) which is a beautiful Welsh song about a passionate love for Wales.

To see the advertisement, called ‘Lifeblood’, click here to go to site of Gray Hughes, the agency responsible for creating and producing it.


Singing is good for you – health studies show

Please click HERE to a link from a recent article in the Daily Telegraph, that provides more proof, if it was needed, that being an active member of a male voice choir is good for your health and general well-being.

Please click HERE to link to another medical study from Tenovus (published on the Science Daily web site in April 2016) that shows that singing for just one hour causes positive physiological changes in people affected by cancer.

So…got a spare hour?

If you have ever thought about joining a male voice choir, or just wondered what we get up to at rehearsals, please feel free to pop along and meet us. There is no pressure to join, and you’ll even get a cup of tea and a biscuit if you are there at our tea break (usually around 8:30).
