Glanaethwy Choir

New additions to Friday Evening Concert

The Willmott Dixon North Wales Choral Festival now in its 26th year has added award winning artists to its Friday Evening Concert line up. Best known for his TV appearances as Gio Compario as GoCompare’s frontman, Wynne Evans will headline this year’s Evening Concert.

BBC’s Last Choir Standing runner up, Côr Glanaethwy will also fill the Venue Cymru arena with their energetic and unforgettable performance. Ysgol Glanaethwy is a performing arts school that have grown to international recognition since their memorable breathtaking finale in 2008. Their trophy case boasts impressive awards from National Eisteddfod, Urdd Eisteddfod, and Cor Cymru.

Recognised as one of the world’s finest youth choirs, in 2010 they were invited to the World Choir Games in China. They went on to achieve a gold class in Gospel and Youth categories and silver class in the Pop category. Cor Glanaethwy are not to be missed at this year’s award winning line up.

Young local tenor Elgan Llyr Thomas from Llandudno is returning to Venue Cymru and will join Wynne Evans on stage on Friday November 8th.

Elgan was one of the first ever recipients of the prestigious study award from the Bryn Terfel Foundation, and also the winner of the Blue Riband Osborne Roberts Memorial Prize.

To add to his already impressively young career, Elgan has recently been shortlisted for the 2013 John Fussell Award. Elgan Llyr Thomas will be a guaranteed performance to remember alongside at this year’s choral festival.

Book tickets to see this concert from just £10!
