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.
The Fron Choir was 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.
