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.

Narre Warren with ConChord

Bunjil Place, 20 October 2019 at 4pm

Join these two magnificent choirs in the very first (and second) Welsh/Sri Lankan joint concerts ever held in the world – plus the international singing sensations, the De Lanerolle Brothers from Sri Lanka.

ConChord Choir evolved from an endeavour to bring Sri Lankans living in Melbourne together in a spirit of peace and reconciliation. With over fifty mixed voices, it performs music as diverse as Broadway, classical, pop and traditional music. The choir is conducted by Rushan Hewawasam, an experienced singer and conductor of several choirs in Sri Lanka and Australia.

 

Rohan and Ishan De Lanerolle are now celebrating ten years of magic and music with twenty concerts in Sri Lanka and overseas, two of which are in Ballarat and Melbourne. With their beautiful mellifluous voices, their range is staggering, encompassing just about every musical genre.

Now in its 40th year, Victoria Welsh Choir, led by Faleiry Koczkar OAM and accompanied by Lorna Ogilvie, is a traditional Welsh male voice choir, singing in four-part harmony. Everybody who comes to our concerts, raves about what a wonderful time they’ve had with the emotion, the musicality, the power and the passion.

             B-Reserve Adult     $40.00, Concession $35.00
