The Fron Choir, or to give its full title, Froncysyllte Male Voice Choir or Côr Meibion Froncysyllte, is an amateur Welsh Male Voice Choir from the village of Froncysyllte, near Llangollen, Denbighshire, North Wales. The village overlooks the amazing Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, designed by Thomas Telford in the 18th Century and now a World Heritage Site.
Founded in 1947 to compete in the Llangollen International Eisteddfod, set up in that year to promote world peace and harmony, the Choir has an illustrious history in competition that continues to this day, with three first prizes at the Cornwall International Male Choral Festival 2017 and, in 2018, took their fourth win in the Best Male Voice Choir in the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod. 
The Fron has made many recordings including the Voices of Valley series of five albums, topping the classical charts, achieving Gold and Platinum Disc status and worldwide sales of over 2 million for the series to date and with our new album, Voices of the Valley - Echoes, due for release in early 2021.
When restrictions are lifted and we are able to sing together once more, visitors are always given a warm welcome to our rehearsals which are held each Monday and Thursday evening. If you wish to visit us please follow this link for further details.

During August 2019 we spent a lot of time in The Forge Recording Studio, Oswestry, where we recorded all the previous Voices of the Valley albums.​​​​​The production team, producer Jon Cohen, engineer Al Unsworth and studio owner Phil Beaumont, along with our wonderful music team, Leigh, Jason and Owen worked tirelessly with the boys of the choir over long days and nights to complete the recording of the vocal lines. Jon scored, recorded the backing tracks and mastered the album during lockdown and we are delighted our record company, Silva Screen, has set a launch in time for St. David's Day, Friday 26th February 2021 – please keep your eyes peeled for social media updates and also make sure you follow the link below to sign up to our monthly newsletter for updates.
