What an opportunity!
For the fourth consecutive year, young Bro Hyddgen instrumentalists and singers had the pleasure of performing with members of the Welsh Sinfonia Chamber Orchestra in a Crescendo concert conducted by the international conductor Mark Eager. Crescendo involves eighteen members of the orchestra working closely with young orchestral players and school choirs, putting on local concerts to introduce them to the joy of performing in large ensembles, through serious but accessible repertoire
As well as presenting an opportunity for our pupils to perform with the orchestra, many Bro Hyddgen soloists and ensembles delighted the audience with performances to orchestral accompaniment – Mared Jones, Gruffydd Behnan, Malen Meredydd Aeron, Begw Tomos, Cerys Hickman, Owen Kimpton, Celt John, Lewys Meredydd Siencyn, vocal ensemble Swynol – Tegan Roberts, Glain Lewis and Alaw Jones, and also the junior and senior Cerdd Dant choirs.
The concert was a resounding success, with the pupils receiving high praise for the professional standard of their performances. Many thanks to the pupils for their hard work and for representing our school so well. Their Music teacher Llio James appreciates their commitment. Thanks also to the peripatetic staff Mr Jean Louis Rimbaud, Mrs Sally Marshall and Mr Steffan Jones for their continued support, and to Mr Tudur Jones for helping with the accompaniment.
