Rhys Meirion

The Concert

Well, well, well do we have some exciting news for you! We can confirm that we will not only be having one concert over the weekend but we will be having TWO concerts!

Our festival celebration concert that happens annually will as always take place on the Saturday night featuring choirs from over the weekend but we can now confirm that we will also be bringing you a Friday night concert! Last year we welcomed Welsh Tenor Wynne Evans, also known as Gio Compario from the Go Compare adverts! This year we will bring you another Welsh Tenor who has had international success yet always comes back to his roots, we are so pleased to announce Rhys Meirion will be headlining our Friday night concert!

Rhys has enjoyed international success in opera concerts and recordings and national success in broadcasting. Some of Rhys’s concert highlights include a gala concert at the Royal Albert Hall, his BBC Prom debut at the opening night of the BBC Proms, Desert Island Discs Anniversary Concert at London’s Royal Festival Hall and those concerts are to name a few!

Rhys’ talents go way further than just singing he is also a regular presenter on the television programme Dechrau Canu Dechrau Canmol for S4C. Rhys also has his own radio show on Sunday mornings on BBC Radio Cymru. We are so honoured to have such a national icon coming along to our festival!

Supporting Rhys Meirion will be the winner of the girls 14-19 age group singing competition from the Urdd Eisteddfod! This will be one of her first performances so make sure you don’t miss it. The competition takes place on the 30th May so once the winner is placed her name will be announced to you all.

Now, we have two soloists, we think it would be rude not to include a choir! However, this will be a male voice choir like no other as we will welcome a collaboration of Male Voice Choirs from across North Wales that will perform together and blow the roof off Venue Cymru! All of the choirs will be announced nearer the time.

Tickets for The Concert are £15 for adults and £10 for children and can be purchased from Venue Cymru on (01492) 872000 or Venue Cymru
