Deputy Conductor: Glyn Jones

Glyn was one of the founder members of the Aberystwyth Post Office Gleemen Choir in 1962, under the direction of James Morse. Because of his singing experience which he had aquired from a young age, Glyn was entrusted with the task of setting up the Second Tenor section and he became leader of that section.
In 1966, Glyn moved with his work to Shrewsbury where once more he became involved in the formation of a similar venture but this time with the Electricity Board.
He returned to Aberystwyth in 1980 and naturally rejoined the choir and has been an active member ever since. He has been the choir's Deputy Conductor since 1988.
