The Welsh express much of their rich musical tradition through choral singing.
Choirs- male, female and mixed – are an integral part of musical life in Wales and many small villages have their own choir. Victoria Welsh Male Choir, with its Welsh-born conductor Faleiry Koczkar OAM, is from this tradition, and maintains the Welsh musical heritage in Australia. Singing in beautiful four-part harmony, they perform throughout Victoria and interstate, and regularly tour Wales to reconnect with their roots.
