Côr y Dreigiau
In the summer of 2006, a call was made to all supporters of the four regions of Welsh Rugby.asking whether anyone could sing in support of their region
Over 80 people answered the call in support of Newport Gwent Dragons, it was for the new S4C reality show Codi Canu.
Côr y Dreigiau rehearsed for months in the hope of winning the competition and on 17th March, 2007 they sang their hearts out for their region, winning the competition by singing with pride the Welsh National Anthem in front of a capacity crowd of over 70,000 people.
Fifteen years later the choir is still going strong. They continue to support the Newport Gwent Dragons at many of their home matches.
They sing at weddings and many other special occasions where they raise money for a number of charities either through their own concerts or by performing as guests at other charity events.
Around 50% of their repertoire is sung in Welsh, which is taught phonetically for those members who do not speak the language.
Côr y Dreigiau is always looking for new members, especially tenors and basses – so if there is anyone interested, please get in touch.
