We are pleased to announce that Corws Colin Jones is to perform in Denbigh Town Hall, Crown Square, Denbigh on Saturday 25th February, 2017.
Of course, Colin Jones is widely recognised as The Maestro of Conductors of Male Voice Choirs.
His ability to attract experienced and top quality choristers, the majority of whom are soloists in their own right, is testament to that.
Colin’s initial choir, Cantorion Colin Jones, was regarded as the foremost male voice choir in North Wales.
As a result of many years conducting Colin decided to retire. He has since been sorely missed in male voice choir circles.
However, he has now come out of retirement and a new male voice choir, Corws Colin Jones, has emerged.
Again, a number of choristers from his old choir are reunited with the new Corws. Continuity is also assured as Olwen Jones is the accompanist once more.
Corws Colin Jones
Choristers of the choir come from various parts of north Wales. Furthermore, this experienced group consist of soloists and some are conductors of their own choirs.
In October 2016, Corws Colin Jones sang in Barcelona and in Barcelona Cathedral. A seven day mediterranean cruise followed with three concerts on board the M.S.C Poesia.
Further information about Corws Colin Jones can be found on their Facebook page.

Kath Luczyn says
I recently heard this wonderful choir sing on the MSC Poesia, and particularly loved the rendition of ´Softly as I leave you´. Please could you tell me where I might find a copy of this song , sung by the Corws, or perhaps a download. I would especially enjoy a CD as there were several pieces that were excellent and I would very much enjoy hearing them again. Well done to the whole choir, including the exceptional three soloists.
I look forward to hearing from you,
Paul Harrison says
Hello Kath. Thank you for taking the time and trouble to add your comment. I agree with you that they are a wonderful choir, the perfect advert for high quality Welsh Male Voice Choirs.
As regards your request, I don’t think that Corws Colin Jones has made a recording as yet. However, Cantorion Colin Jones have and I believe that ‘Softly As I Leave You’ is on one of their recordings. I would suggest that you contact Steven Gardner, the Secretary of Corws Colin Jones, and he may be able to assist you in obtaining a recording. He can be contacted at the email address firstname.lastname@example.org .
