Brymbo is no stranger to male voice choirs, with a tradition stretching back more than 100 years.
Brymbo Male Choir has enjoyed numerous incarnations, the present group originating in the late 1950s.
Local musician, Glyn Hughes, was appointed conductor in 1966, and the musical world opened up to the choir with subsequent performances throughout Great Britain, tours to America and Europe, television appearances and several audio recordings.
After 46 years as musical director, Mr Hughes retired from the choir, but not before receiving a well-deserved MBE for his services to music and charity.
Mr Hughes was succeeded by Dr David N Evans in 2011. After retiring his position in 2015, Mr Evans was followed into post by Gareth F Hughes.
Shirley Newman took over the baton in September 2016 to become the choir’s first female musical director and will lead the choir in the next chapter of its history.
2019 marks the choir’s 60th anniversary.
