Rehoboth Welsh Choir (Côr Cymraeg Rehoboth) is a Concert Choir in the tradition of the great performing choirs of the Welsh valleys. The choir sings with joy the music of the faith and culture of Wales and from the rich heritage of classical and modern choral repertoire. It performs a variety of styles in Welsh and other languages, and strives continually for beauty of sound and high quality of performance, under its professional director.

Organized in 1984, Côr Rehoboth was started by members of Rehoboth Welsh Chapel (Capel Cymraeg Rehoboth) in Delta, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. Members of the choir come from a wide-ranging area from Philadelphia to Washington, D.C., and weekly rehearsals are held at a central location. The Choir performs concerts by request, and has entertained audiences throughout Maryland, Pennsylvania and New York. These concerts enrich and educate listeners with the depth and beauty of the Welsh language, culture, and choral tradition.

Among the choir's many accomplishments is having been awarded a prize in choral competition at the prestigious Royal National Eisteddfod of Wales in Aberystwyth, Wales, in 1992.

In 1998, the choir conducted a highly successful concert tour of Wales, England, Brittany and France. It performed in four locations in Wales and two in Brittany. It also sang in three cathedrals: Peterborough in England and two in Paris, the American Cathedral and the Cathedral of Notre Dame. It received a warm and enthusiastic reception everywhere! All of the choristers had a wonderful and unforgettable time! Here is what one Breton newspaper said: "Elle laissera forcement des traces par sa presence, son charme et son etonnante interpretation. A quand leur prochaine visite?" ("It will leave strong impressions of its presence, charm and astonishing interpretation. When is their next visit?")

The choir had the pleasure and privilege of singing the wedding music at the marriage of the Hollywood stars Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones at the Plaza Hotel in New York City on November 18, 2000.
"You guys are great!" -- Michael Douglas.
"Thank you very much!" -- Catherine Zeta Jones.
"You were fine!" -- Kirk Douglas.
"The choir was wonderful!" -- Barbara Walters.
"You sounded really good." -- Christopher Reeves.

All members enjoy the wealth of friendships and social events; the challenge of learning and performing; the satisfaction of educating and enriching the lives of others with the Welsh Choral heritage.
