Deadline Approaching

The weekend competitions may be full but we still have space in our Festival Schools Day which is open to all North Wales schools!

We are thrilled to have had so many junior and senior schools already entered into the Festival; we’ve got some new schools along with some of our lovely regulars! But luckily for the rest of North Wales schools we still have some space left, however you’ll need to get entry forms into us quickly as the deadline is Friday 22 September.

The Festival Schools day celebrates its fifth year and as always is promised to be a fun-filled, choral packed day! Half a day will be spent taking part in a friendly competition against other school choirs for our three adjudicators Mari Lloyd-Pritchard, Nia Morgan and Robat Arwyn.

The rest of the day will be spent in a very fun yet beneficial (noisy!) workshop with vocal animateur Ruth Evans from the CânSing team! Ruth works for Welsh National Opera as a Producer in the Youth & Community department and is responsible for the company's community singing and community opera work. Accompanist Annette Bryn-Parri will also be assisting in the fun workshop!

The Festival Schools Day is completely free and we partly reimburse travel expenses. The only thing we do ask for is a £50 refundable cheque as a deposit which will be returned to you at the festival.

Take a look at the lovely feedback we’ve had from schools that have taken part in the past:

Ysgol Y Creuddyn

Thank you so much for Friday! We had a great day and thought everything was well planned and organised! We will be competing again in the future!

Southdown Primary School

Wow what a great time we had at the schools day the children enjoyed the workshop and taking part in the competition, topped off with some lovely comments from the judges and we were thrilled to bring home the trophy for 1st place.

Ysgol Frongoch

Thank you very much for the experience the children had at the Choral Festival on Friday, the children had a wonderful time and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

So if this sounds like something your school would like to get involved in then mark Monday 6th November in your diaries and email for an entry form!
