Where is Dunvant?

Dunvant is a small village situated some five miles west of Swansea on the South coast of Wales, at the gateway to Gower, Britains first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

In spite of its small size it has boasted one of the finest choirs and one of the finest rugby clubs in Wales.

Choir Philosophy

Dunvant Male Choir pursues the philosophy that music, above all else, is a communicable happiness, and although local surnames dominate, local pride supports and nurtures it. The singing like all great Welsh choirs excels with adrenaline flowing free, be it in the polyphonic intricacies of Benjamin Britten or the compelling surge of the great Welsh Hymns.

Music is a language enjoyed by all people at all levels.


All involved with Dunvant Male Choir wish our Patrons, Friends and Followers a Healthy Christmas and a Happy New Year.

(Please renew your Patronship early)
