Tŷ Cerdd Membership 2018-19


Tŷ Cerdd is passionate about engaging with music-makers around Wales, and working with communities to support the creation of Welsh music, celebrate the legacy, and develop audiences.

We have a membership of music-promoting societies across Wales – members include operatic societies, brass bands, choirs, folk song and dance groups, youth music ensembles, and range from small, community-based performing organisations, to those of national and international significance.

To extend our work, we have launched an additional membership for INDIVIDUALS – from conductors and performers to students and researchers - to take advantage of the Tŷ Cerdd members’ benefits.
