Hello and welcome to the website of Cardiff Polyphonic Choir.
When twenty Aberystwyth graduates who had sung together in university met up in Cardiff in the autumn of 1964 to form a choir, they could scarcely have believed that Cardiff Polyphonic Choir would still be thriving and growing more than fifty years later!
The choir now numbers 65 singers and has been directed since 2015 by David Young. Most years we perform six or seven times covering a wide range of venues and programmes – from Handel in St David’s Hall to Gershwin in Penarth Pavilion. We aim to organise a foreign tour every other year and sang in Lund in Sweden in 2017. The social side of the choir is also very important and there is always time for a well-earned drink after a rehearsal!
We rehearse on a Thursday evening from 7-9pm in Howells School in Llandaff, Cardiff. Entry to the choir is by audition, but we usually invite prospective new members to come and rehearse with us for a couple of weeks to see if they like us first! If you would like to try us out all the information you need is HERE.
Sadly, after seven fantastic years with us, Dave Young is leaving the choir in the summer of 2022, so we are looking for a new Musical Director. Details of the Job Description for the role can be found here.
The closing date for applications is 5pm on Saturday 30 April, with interviews for selected candidates planned for late May/early June. Shortlisted candidates will be asked to rehearse the choir on the evening of either 23 or 24 June and the successful candidate will be informed as soon as possible after that. The successful candidate will take up the position in September 2022.
