We are delighted to announce more details of our Langollen 2020 line-up which includes the UK première of Bobbi Fischer’s Magnificat featuring soloist Elin Manahan Thomas and a ‘Llangollen-Special’ performance by Only Men Aloud.
International Eisteddfod Artistic Director, Dr Edward-Rhys Harry said:
“It is a real coup to have the UK première of Bobbi Fischer’s Magnificat at Llangollen 2020 and to be able to welcome back the exceptional Elin Manahan Thomas. It has also been a joy to work closely with Only Men Aloud to create a special repertoire around our founding mission of peace and harmony in what promises to be a wonderful and unique performance by this well-loved choir.”
Fusion (Wednesday 8 July) sees eclectic musical elements from different cultures sit side by side. The first part of the evening will present the UK première of German composer, Bobbi Fischer’s Magnificat, where this traditional choral work is fused with rhythm and harmonies of Latin America with Samba, Rhumba, Bossa Nova and Cha-Cha.
