Resource authors: Michael Wilson
Project: The university of the village: universities connecting with rural communities

This short film tells the story of the development and aims of the Ystrad Mynach Male Voice choir. It reveals some fascinating local knowledges about the community and was made as part of the ‘University of the Village’ project which brought together material emanating from the community for a live ‘link-up’ event with the village of St. Agnes in Cornwall so the two communities could share their work and learn from the project and each other. The choir has toured extensively, to countries such as Denmark, Germany, Japan and Cyprus. The choir is committed to supporting and raising money for charities and other good causes whilst promoting the learning, presentation and creation in choral singing of the best traditional standards and achievements of male choirs in Wales.
