The James Lambert Singers - A Wrexham based choir

The James Lambert singers are a Wrexham based choir consisting of 35 choristers, both male and female. They were formed in 1969 by the distinguished musician, the late Mr Emyr James of Rhosllanerchrugog and local musician Mr Don Lambert.

Mr James retired as Musical Director of the choir in 1990, when the present Director Mrs Mair Evans took over the leadership. Mrs Mair Evans is an accomplished musician; she is a music teacher and has been the accompanist to the award winning Froncysyllte Male Voice Choir and a founder member of the James Lambert Singers.

Mr Emyr James brought forth a new distinctive sound to choral singing in Wales, breaking away from the more traditional form of music and introduced a more relaxing and easy listening repertoire. Mrs Mair Evans has successfully continued with this style of music.

The Choir now has a very wide repertoire of music to listen to, songs from the yesterday era. 1940's through to the more well known popular songs of today, as well as arrangements of Welsh folk music also traditional and modern Christmas carols with accompaniment of pre- recorded music.

The choir has had many successful singing engagements in Germany and has taken part in a Gymanfa Ganu in Columbus, Ohio, USA, twice visited Malta and have recently returned from a singing engagement in Switzerland.

The Choir holds its rehearsals in Brybo Sports & Social Club Tuesday evening at 7.45 pm.
