Côr y Penrhyn-Cyngerdd Dydd Gwyl Dewi Sant.
Côr y Penrhyn return to Rhosygilwen for the St David’s day weekend. Regarded as one of the leading choirs in Wales they have performed on the Glastonbury stage and many other iconic venues.
Côr y Penrhyn Male Voice Choir 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. In the beginning, almost all members of the choir were slate miners, as a workforce of almost 3000 worked at the quarry, but that number has now shrunk to under 200 and the choir has to draw its members these days from all walks of life including school teachers, local government officials, farmers and businessmen.
