Cantorion Colin Jones (The North Wales Male Chorus) is based in Betws y Coed, North Wales. The choir rehearses in St Mary’s Church Room in the centre of the village. | Cantorion was founded by Colin Jones in 1992 when he invited singers, who he knew and had taught and conducted previously in other choirs across North Wales, to join his new chorus. He was able to match his skills in voice production and choral management with the enthusiasm and commitment of some of North Wales’ finest male choral singers and soloists, and during his 15 years had established a male chorus with a special sound and quality now recognised after its numerous tours and performances in many countries, worldwide.| Cantorion was extremely fortunate in obtaining the services of John Daniel as its new Musical Director in November 2008 when Colin retired after a long and successful period as its original founder and choral architect. John hails from Rhosllannerchrugog, the same town as Colin and shares many of his predecessor’s talents and musical gifts. | Click through to the next page for a wonderful video version of An American Trilogy which includes “The Battle Hymn of the Republic” and “Dixie”.

This was one of Colin Jones's last concerts before he retired as the conductor. | The Cantorion considers itself to be more than a group of singers. It is a microcosm of the North Wales region in general and the area’s individual communities in particular. As such, it has a real family atmosphere, a vibrant social life and a more than convivial welcome is given to casual visitors who frequent its rehearsals every other Sunday afternoon (2pm to 5pm), in St Mary’s Church Room, Betws-y-Coed, Snowdonia, North Wales.
