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.

WELCOME to the upgraded Choir Website, with added features. Please bear with us for a few weeks while we bring the website content up to date and improve.

To mark this upgrade we have reduced the price of many of our CD recordings (See Recordings page). These reduced prices will be available at Concert sales and on this website.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE. Now is a great time to join the choir and join these new choristers as they go through the learning process - you won't be on your own!


DYLAN THOMAS Our "enhanced version" of Harmony & Humour is now available, it remains at the standard price of £8. The CD has been endorsed by the Dylan Thomas 100 Festival and bears its logo. It is available via this website and at our concerts or rehearsals. For Dylans' 100th birthday celebration, the choir is pleased to havethis recording avalilable at Dylan Thomas' birthplace (www.5cwmdonkindrive.com) thanks to Geoff Haden, and also around the country at Dylan's Mobile Bookstore (www.dylan.Fcom), thanks to Jeff Towns.

Thought for the month: "If music be the food of love - Toast me another crotchet"!

Fringe News:

November '14 - Happy Birthday WMC! The Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff is 10 years of age. The Choir and some of the choristers in other groups have enjoyed performing there.
