Trystan 2012 North Wales Choral Festival

Community Performances

10 08 2012

The North Wales Choral Festival is pleased to introduce some new elements this year to celebrate its 25th Anniversary. Not only will the Friday be host to a local schools day but we will also be hosting community performances around the town of Llandudno over the weekend so that choirs will have the opportunity to perform for an audience elsewhere and not just in their competition class. Tickets for these performances will be available to the public and choirs. We have uploaded a new registration form so look out for the tickboxes for you to register your interest.

The community concerts will be run by Trystan Lewis. Trystan has been involved with music, and particularly choirs, for most of his life. He conducted Pantycelyn choir to two national wins whilst an undergraduate at the University of Wales at Aberystwyth. He was appointed Musical Director of the Maelgwn Male Voice Choir at 22 years of age and they have won the Sealink competition, the National Eisteddfod twice and were finalists in the BBC Choir Competition. Whilst at Aberystwyth he was organist of the Tabernacle, and is an organist at St John’s Llandudno and Bethel and Peniel, Deganwy. He has conducted over 200 Cymanfaoedd Canu singing festivals, including Canada and the North American Festival, as well as on television and radio.

He is a busy bass-baritone. He sang with the Llanelli Choral Society in 2009 and 2010. He is also a regular soloist at the St. John’s concerts in Llandudno and he won the Open Welsh Solo at the National Eisteddfod in Bala in 2009. He is an adjudicator as well being Musical Director of Côr Cymysg Dyffryn Conwy, which he founded, and has conducted in performances with the North Wales Philharmonia Orchestra. His most recent appointment is Musical Director of the Mold Choral Society. He gained an M.Mus. degree from Liverpool University in 2009 in Voice Technique and Harmony and Counterpoint.

Trystan and his wife Llinos run 'Lewis Bookshop' in Llandudno which specialises in new and second-hand books as well as having a coffee shop.
