After weeks of top-quality, thrilling competition, five of our country's most inspirational, dynamic choirs will battle it out in the Côr Cymru 2019 final.

And all the excitement of the final can be seen live on Sunday, April 7 on S4C as broadcasters Heledd Cynwal and Morgan Jones present the five choirs in the final from the stage of the Great Hall, Aberystwyth Arts Centre.

Côr Cymru – the Choir of Wales competition – has developed into one of the highlights of the Welsh cultural calendar since it was launched in 2003.

Five different choirs have since won the prestigious award over eight competitions.

The five choirs in the final are Ysgol Gerdd Ceredigion, Johns' Boys, Côr Ieuenctid Môn and Côr Sioe Ieuenctid Môn,

The winning choir will go on to represent Wales in the Eurovision Choir Competition which is being held this August in Gothenburg, Sweden.

In the first competition in 2017, Carmarthenshire female choir, Côr Merched Sir Gâr came second.

There has been some change in the categories for this year’s ninth competition.

The choirs are still divided into five categories, but along with the Mixed Choirs, Youth Choirs and Children's Choirs, the Equal Voice category combines the female and male voice choirs while the Show Choirs category is completely new.

Also, for the third time, Côr Cymru will be inviting Welsh primary school choirs to the stage.

In a special competition, Côr Cymru Cynradd will crown the best primary school choir on Saturday, April 6 on S4C.

The schools in the final are Ysgol Gymraeg Teilo Sant Llandeilo, Ysgol Gynradd Gymraeg Llwyncelyn, Porth, Ysgol Gymraeg Llangennech and the winners of the competition two years ago, Ysgol Pen Barras, Ruthin.

Three internationally respected adjudicators are judging the competition and selecting the winners, conductor and choral tutor Anna Wilczewska of Poland, Huw Humphreys, Head of Music at the Barbican Centre, London and Karmina Silec, a musical director from Slovenia and Fellow of Harvard University.

They have all relished the task and have been impressed by the quality of the competition.

Who will join the select list of winners - Ysgol Gerdd Ceredigion (2003 and 2009), Serendipity (2005), Cywair (2007 and 2011), Côr y Wiber (2013), Côr Heol y March (2015) and Côr Merched Sir Gâr (2017)?

“This competition is one of the cornerstones of S4C’s events and we’re very proud of it,” said Elen Rhys, S4C’s Entertainment Commissioner.

“The standard is incredible once again this year, and we’re very proud to celebrate Wales’s choral talents on S4C.”
