The North Wales Choral Festival 2017

4-6 November 2017

We’ve got North Wales Choral Festival blues in the office, another year been and gone! But what a weekend it was, we welcomed 43 choirs to Llandudno to take part in the Festival and celebrate its 30th year! Choirs travelled from every corner of Great Britain to be with us – Wales, England, Ireland and Scotland!

The weekend kicked off on the Saturday with the Male Voice followed by Youth, and Ladies competitions. Onto Sunday we welcomed our largest just for fun category to date with 10 choirs competing in the category along with the much loved Barbershop and Mixed voices. There were some tough decisions to be made for the adjudicators, Rob Elliott, David King and Vivien Pike.

Schools Day

Monday the 6th saw three junior schools and two senior schools excitably enter Venue Cymru for a full day of musical fun. We welcomed back Mari Lloyd Pritchard, Nia Morgan and Robart Arwyn as our adjudicators. As always all three judges thoroughly enjoyed the day and everything each choir bought to the stage. Children also took part in a workshop by Ruth Evans and Suzanne Barnes these ladies didn’t fail to impress and the children all loved the workshop!

The Festival Celebration Concerts

This year was the first year we have had 2 celebration concerts to celebrate the festivals 30th anniversary. The Saturday concert saw 7 choirs perform in a more relax, fun environment without the eyes of the adjudicators. We had Peterborough Male Voice Choir, Cor Cytgan Clwyd, Bel Canto Ladies Choir, Cor Meibion Colwyn, Harrow Apollo Male Voice Choir, Rossendale Ladies Choir, and Shrewsbury Male Voice Choir! The Sunday night Celebration Concert saw performances from Edinburgh Police Choir, Cor Clwyd, The Heath Chorus and YesterYear. As well as special guest WNO artist Rebecca Afonwy-Jones!

We’d like to thank all choirs that took part for making it such a fun evening for us and all that attended! A HUGE thank you to all choirs that competed over the weekend, it was lovely to see some familiar faces and of course to meet all the new choirs, we hope to see you all again in the future.
