The rebirth of the Burry Port Male Choir took place in September 1962 when a meeting was called at the Memorial Hall inviting along any persons interested in reforming the choir to attend – thirty persons turned up. The meeting concluded with Mr. Raymond Morris being appointed its first conductor. The objectives and aims of the present choir are still founded on the foundations set over forty years ago.
Mr. Ryan Lee our present conductor is only the seventh in nearly forty years. His immediate task on taking up the appointment was to guide and adapt the choir through the changes that were taking place within the modern era of Male Choirs, with his talent for arranging modern songs and by combining the modern with the traditional. The reputation of the Burry Port Male Choir extended under his leadership to many parts of the British Isles, Europe and the United States of America.
Over the years the choir has supported local charitable events and competed at eisteddfodau within our area at both National and International levels. It has twice visited Holland, Canada once, and has been to America on three occasions. The choir has also visited and performed in Paris and at The Albert Hall, London in the Thousand Voices Concerts.
Our main aim is to establish and ensure a future for the Male Choir in Burry Port. Combining the commitment of the present membership with the support shown in the town the choir can plan and look forward to many more successful years.
