Anglo-Welsh Festival of Male Choirs: Biddulph Male Voice Choir, Bridgend Male Voice Choir, Canoldir Male Choir, Cardiff Arms Park, Dowlais Male Choir, Mynyddislwyn Choir, Oxford Welsh Choir, Penybontfawr Choir, Pontarddulais Male Voice Choir
Massed Choir of 500 voices.
The Bridgend Male Choir, Côr Meibion Pen-y-bont ar Ogwr, was established in August 1960 originally as the Bridgend & District Police Choir. The name was changed in 1987 to the Bridgend & District Male Choir and in 2006 to its present title. Numbers have risen steadily and the choir is now well over 90 strong. They have a wide and diverse repertoire that includes opera, folk music, songs from modern day musicals, Welsh compositions, classical music and traditional male voice songs.

The Choir can trace its roots back to the late 1800s and continued until the 1950s. At some points, the Choir boasted over 100 members, but towards the 50s, it was much reduced and eventually disbanded. The present Choir was re-formed in 1965 by 13 men keen to see a revival of choral music in Dowlais, and that number rose to 120, reflecting the enthusiasm of the early days. Today the number of choristers registered is 60 and is constantly looking to recruit new members, to ensure that the Welsh choral tradition lives on.
