CHOIR DELIGHTS SOUTHERN HEMISPHERE VISITORS

Saturday 22 August 2015

Bridgend Male Choir was proud to provide after-dinner choral entertainment to a private tour party from Auckland, NZ on the Theatre stage at Craig Y Nos Castle at the weekend. ... David Burt writes......
Led by Musical Director, Rhiannon Williams-Hale & supported by guest accompanist, Ryan Wood, the choristers were on top form. Content included traditional Welsh folk-songs & hymns; ballads & operatic items, which had been specifically requested by the tour organisers. Rhiannon had regally entertained with vocal solo items, Fields of Gold and Ar Lan Y Mor, accompanying herself on piano. It may be some time ago that she was Welsh Choir girl of the Year, but that early talent has continued through the years. The tourists are visiting places of art, culture & musical significance & after a standing ovation, a spokesman commented that that the evening had been THE highlight so far.
