The Foel Male Voice Choir was formed by Grȇs Pritchard to
participate in the Millennium Christmas Concert at Capel Ifan,
Llannerch y medd.
Following the success of the concert, it was decided in 2001
to form a choir to compete in the Anglesey Eisteddfod, which
was to be held in Llannerch y medd.
Llannerch y medd is an ancient marketing town situated on the
Foel hill, which has lent its name to the Choir.
The Choir is based at the the local school room at Capel Ifan and members
travel from all over Anglesey to meet for rehearsals every Tuesday
at 7:30 p.m.
Over the past decade the Choir has supported local Eisteddfodau,
competed in the Anglesey Eisteddfod, raised money for numerous
charities and has entertained audiences in concerts, weddings and
other functions throughout North Wales.
The Choir has travelled north to Falkirk and Alloa in Scotland,
eastwards to England, their second visit to Holmes Chapel in 2011
and southwards to Plymouth to entertain a capacity audience with
The Tamar Valley Male Voice Choir.
In September 2008 the choir released its first CD, Croesi’r Bont
(Crossing the Bridge) which contains 18 bilingual tracks (see Music recordings)
