Concert at Acapela 26th September 2019
The start of the Rugby World Cup in Japan was celebrated in Acapela Studios in Pentyrch by Côr Meibion Taf (the male voice choir from Cardiff who rehearse on Sunday evenings at Salem Chapel, Canton – cormeibiontaf.com ). The choir’s relationship with Acapela started when it recorded a number of Christmas carols at the studios.This time, the venue was draped in Welsh flags, tackle bags and post protectors creating an exciting pre-tournament atmosphere.
The choir’s conductor and renowned baritone, Steffan Jones, sang solos including a rendition of the ever popular Welsh folk song, Ar Lan y Môr, which he sang during the choir’s performance at the Pantheon in Rome and has since gone viral. The choir’s accompanist is the highly accomplished, Lowri Guy. Côr Meibion Taf shared the stage with local talent, Catrin Herbert who sang a number of her own modern compositions.
The compere for the evening was the local broadcasting celebrity, Huw Llywelyn Davies, who is a member of the bass section of the choir. He announced that both Catrin and Côr Meibion Taf would be releasing new CDs in the near future.
Following a very successful evening, Côr Meibion Taf will no doubt be returning for another gig – before the next World Cup!

Bethesda 30th March 2019
The local Welsh newspaper in Bethesda, LLAIS OGWAN, carried a report of Côr Mebion Taf’s visit to Snowdonia where they shared the stage with the renowned Côr Penrhyn, the quarrymen’s choir in the imposing Capel Jerusalem, Bethesda. The relationship between the two choirs was established when Côr Penrhyn came to sing in the National Stadium
at a Cymru v Scotland international. A joint concert was held the night before in Capel Salem, Canton. Since this venture, Côr Caernarfon followed suit the following season. It appears that this arrangement between Côr Meibion Taf and visiting choirs might become a permanent fixture – watch this space!
