Wednesday 3 July
Saints and Singers: The Music of Wales

Wales has a world-wide reputation for its choral music, and this evening will showcase the Land of Song at its very best. Supreme Welsh vocalists Shân Cothi (soprano) and Rhodri Prys Jones (tenor), along with the British Sinfonietta, will be joined by the combined forces of London Welsh Chorale, Liverpool Welsh Choral, Palmdale High School Chamber Choir and Wrexham Music Cooperative, in a massed choir to perform music by two royal composers; William Mathias CBE and Paul Mealor, as well as inspiring compositions by Arwel Hughes OBE and Morfydd Owen.

The audience will be treated to two rare opportunities: the premiere performance of a brand new work for tenor, chorus and orchestra by Dr Edward-Rhys Harry, and the not to be missed sheer majesty of the incredible cantata ‘Saint Teilo’ by William Mathias CBE.

The evening will also feature the culmination of the Pendine International Voice of the Future competition where two soloists will compete for this prestigious title, performing a varied classical programme to showcase their talents. The competition is intended to advance the career of a young soloist, and is kindly sponsored by Pendine Arts and Community Trust.

The concert promises to be a tremendously dramatic celebration of traditional music from Wales, bursting with glorious melodies and powerful operatic choruses.
