all 3 adjudicators

All three adjudicators announced!

Talk about being organised – we’ve got all three of our adjudicators booked and ready to be wowed by you.

You may recognise our first adjudicator as he is back for his second year – Paul Davies Paul is one to watch for all of you barbershop choirs as he is our barbershop expert. He founded Cambridge Chord Company, which under his direction won the Pavarotti Choir of the World at the Llangollen International Eisteddfod as well as six British and two European championships.

Paul qualified as a judge with the British Association of Barbershop Singers (BABS) over 30 years ago and was recently awarded a place in the society’s Hall of Fame and is currently involved in the Arts Council Making Music programme as a choral coach.

Paul is pleased to be returning to the North Wales Choral Festival and is hoping for just as much talent and energy as last years gave him and although his expertise lies with barbershop he loves every category and can’t wait to see them again.

We are proud to announce that our second adjudicator is the ever so talented Peter Broadbent Peter is best known as conductor of the Joyful Company of Singers, one of Europe’s leading chamber choirs, with whom he has made many recordings and appeared in concerts throughout Europe and the USA.

Peter has conducted professional choirs and orchestras all over the UK and even Europe. Broadbent is in demand for master classes and workshops all over the world, and appears regularly as a jury member of International choral & choral conducting competitions throughout Europe so we are thrilled to have him with us this year.

Last but most definitely not least is our third adjudicator – Jean Stanley Jones In recognition of Jeans success she has received numerous national and international awards including special prizes for conducting and musicianship at International Music Festivals in Italy, Prague, Brittany, Ireland, England, Wales, and the Bartok Festival in Hungary.

Jean is one to watch for the mixed choirs as she is the founder and musical director of the internationally acclaimed Sirenian Singers, a mixed voice choir who were the first Welsh choir to win the prestigious Choir of the World competition at Llangollen International Eisteddfod. Jean has had plenty of experience in vocal training, conducting and of course adjudicating.

I am sure you will agree that we have three very successful and talented adjudicators; we can’t wait to welcome them to the festival in November and share your talents with them.
