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.


Find out more about the choir’s history HERE and for up-to-date news do follow us on Facebook and Twitter.

We are hugely disappointed that our Dixit Dominus concert at the Royal Welsh College on Sunday 29 March is having to be cancelled. The College is now closed for all public performances until further notice.

We’ve so enjoyed rehearsing such brilliant music. And we’re determined to reschedule it just as soon as we can. And when we do, we’ll let you know – we want to share it with you!
