The Choir Concert

The choir out of their usual maroon uniforms

The Trelawnyd Male Voice Choir " Noson Llawen "was the best concert I have seen in the Hall to date. This was thanks primarily to the choir's new Musical Director Ann Atkinson who proved herself to be a talented Singer herself as she belted out the Habenera whilst draped over the front row of grinning choir members.
I have posted two short videos of the performance, and apologies for the state of the filming , I couldn't raise the ipad too high. One video is the choir belting out a " pirate " song and the other was a quick video of the compare who is a very Welsh Farmer from the sticks!
Enjoy

  10. I'd like to have heard them singing in Welsh; it brings out the part-Welshman in me. Lots of grey hair there, and I loved the farmer's accent.

  16. There is nothing to compare with the Welsh male voice choir - don't know whether it is the air, the water, heredity of just tradition - but this is fantastic.
