Where is Dunvant? 

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

In spite of its 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.

Our next engagement is at St. Hilary's Church, Killay on Saturday 8th November, A Remembrance Concert on the eve of Remembrance Day. Guest Artistes are Ros Evans (Soprano), Hywel Evans (Organ), the choir and contributions by parishioners. Tickets £10 from David Vaughan Tel 205078. See poster on Events page.

After "One of the best London Welsh Festival of Male Choirs" (other peoples words not ours), we'd like to thank our Music Team of Jon Rogers (Deputy Festival Conductor) Hywel Evans, D. Huw Rees and Tony Phipps for all the hard work (and frustration) they've gone through to get us ready. Also grateful thanks to Management & Staff of the Copthorne Tara for coping so efficiently with our group of 100+. Also great to catch up with many friends over the London Weekend, Edward-Rhys Harry, Robert Nicholls, Stewart Roberts, Mike Williams, James Prideaux and many others.
