The Choir was founded in 1941 and for much of its existence was known as the Cestrian Male Voice Choir. The name was changed in 1999 to The City of Chester Male Voice Choir in order to be associated more closely with the city of its origin. More recently it prefers the shortened version of Chester Male Voice Choir
