Welcome to Vic Welsh
Croeso i Vic Welsh

We are Victoria Welsh Choir (Vic Welsh for short), a traditional Welsh men's choir.  As the most Welsh Welsh men's choir in Australia:

  • At least 25% of what we sing is in Welsh (it's in our constitution) - often it's a lot more

  • Our Musical Director since 1994, Faleiry Koczkar OAM, is a native Welsh speaker

  • We hold weekly Welsh pronunciation classes and have been complimented on our pronunciation by audiences in Wales

  • Our appearances in the Welsh National Eisteddfod in 1999 and 2004 were the first by any expatriate Welsh choir since 1929

  • We have led the singing at Cymanfa Ganu Hymn Festivals held by the Welsh Church in Melbourne since our foundation

  • Every four years or so we go on a concert tour to Wales and sing with local choirs.
In our green jackets, dinner suits or black shirts, we have brought hwyl to audiences in Melbourne, Victoria (south-east Australia) and beyond since we were founded by seven Welshmen in 1980.

Vic Welsh – Australia’s world class Welsh choir.

Nothing like the mellowness of a male choir.

Have heard the choir before and I loved the performance so had to come again

Fantastic performance - made me nostalgic


Loved audience participation. Enjoyed stories and jokes.

Well done (as it always is).

So glad I finally made a performance.


Enjoy - Mwynhewch!
