Brymbo Male Choir grew from the active community surrounding the local steelworks, and the history of male choirs in Brymbo goes back over the past 100 years. The present choir was formed in 1959 by a number of choristers from St Mary’s Church Brymbo with the intention of entertaining locally. With the appointment of Conductor Glyn Hughes in 1966 the choir began to broaden its horizons, and over the past years the choir has created an interest by giving choral performances to high levels, with an appreciation by all audiences that attend the many concerts and venues that the choir performs at.‘

‘Formed in 1996 ... presenting high quality concerts in North East Wales ... Without a “fixed” membership or set weekly rehearsals, our players come together for only a few rehearsals before each concert. This gives us the flexibility to provide any size of orchestra to suit the repertoire we play or to fit into any venue.’

‘Formed in 1957 specifically to compete at the Llangollen International Eisteddfod. Since then we have performed throughout the UK and have travelled extensively in Europe, the USA & Canada. We have also visited China, Hong Kong & Israel. We've taken part in many competitions & won a significant number of prizes as well as making several cassettes and CD's. We are a registered Charity and have helped raise many thousands on pounds for many diverse deserving causes. One of our recordings, “Calm is the Sea”, helped to raise over £10,000 for the Royal National Lieboat Institution. It is one of the Choir's proudest boasts that a number of its members have gone on to take up singing as a career.‘

'One of the finest examples of ecclesiastical architecture to be found in Wales. There is documentary evidence of a church here as early as the 11th century, though the building in its present form dates mainly from the end of the 15th and the beginning of the 16th centuries ... The present organ was built in 1894 by Foster & Andrews of Hull. It was fully restored in 1984.'
