Côr Tŷ Tawe is a mixed choir, established in 1990 in Swansea as a Welsh medium choir. Over the years it has held many concerts, mainly in Swansea and West Wales, and has competed successfully in competitions and Eisteddfods. It has also won the first prize four times in the Pan-Celtic competition, held annually in Ireland.
Helen Gibbon leads the choir, and John Evans is the accompanist.
The choir has travelled on many European tours, giving concerts in Munich, Berlin, Prague, Salzburg, Gdansk, Krakow, Barcelona, Wittenberg and travelled in 2011 Rovigo, Italy.
The choir sings a variety of Welsh traditional and modern songs, and also has a classical and religious international repertoire.
The choir welcomes Welsh speakers and learners of Welsh, and offers the latter an ideal opportunity to immerse themselves in Welsh culture and to enjoy socialising in the Welsh language.
Côr Tŷ Tawe rehearses in Tŷ Tawe every Wednesday evening, between 19:00 and 21:00. New singers are welcome.
