Côr Meibion y Penrhyn+Côr Meibion Clwb Rygbi Aberteifi
Cardigan’s local choir will host one of the oldest male voice choirs from North Wales. There will be limited space in Neuaddydderwen for this event so please book early.
Cor Penrhyn has its roots in the slate quarrying village of Bethesda in the Ogwen Valley which lies on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park about 5 miles to the south east of the university city of Bangor. The choir can trace its origins back to the 1880’s when a united choir was formed from a number of smaller groups that existed on the various galleries or levels in the mighty Penrhyn Slate Quarry. Indeed, that choir travelled to Chicago for the World Trade Fair in 1893 under the name Penrhyn Male Choir and the present choir returned to “The Windy City” in 1993 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of their forefathers’ visit.
