'Our concerts are normally held on the Second Tuesday of the month except occasionally when artists are booked for a different day.' About half a dozen concerts per year.

 

Every summer since 1947 Llangollen has staged one of the world’s most inspirational cultural festivals. Each year around 4,000 performers and as many as 50,000 visitors converge on this beautiful small Welsh town and its International Pavilion; to sing and dance in a unique combination of competition, performance, and international peace and friendship.' Held Early July.

 

‘Founded in 1972 by Welsh composer William Mathias, the NWIMF continues to delight audiences from across the globe. The fantastic acoustics of our concert venue, St Asaph Cathedral, make for a stunning musical experience. With innovation and flair, this festival of music-making has been compared by audiences as akin to a week at The Barbican or SouthBank.’ Held Mid - Late September.

 

'North Wales' premier live classical music venue ... Whilst venues such as Theatre Clwyd and Venue Cymru offer a small number of classical events, only Rhyl Music Club stages a series of 12 concerts every year ... One of the aims of the club each season is to support young musicians in North Wales who are thinking of a musical career ... We have sponsored school workshops led by our visiting artists who have also given master-classes as a prelude to their evening concerts ... We have always striven, usually successfully, to attract the very best performers we can afford for our discerning audiences. From chamber orchestras to brass ensembles, string, piano, wind and percussionist soloists to choirs and singers, the aim is always to provide the highest quality of live music outside of the main urban centres.'

 

'Founded on the 31st October 1996, and was initially known as The Feathers Folk Club ... The new name, Ruthin AllStyles Music Club was chosen to reflect the fact the club has always appealed to very diverse tastes in both music and indeed poetry. This means that in each session there is music that will appeal to everyone’s tastes ...  We also encourage new visitors to “have a go” if they should want to. And although the atmosphere has always been relaxed, when performers are doing their bit, the audience gives them full and quiet attention. Every couple of months a professional singer or instrumentalist visits us, and it can be a great inspiration to the members to see these seasoned performers close up.'

‘A strong male voice choir tradition in the Corwen area was re-established when the choir was formed in 1973 ... The members are drawn from an area around Corwen, Bala and Llangollen in North Wales, taking its name from the famous Welsh Prince, Owain Glyndŵr who drew many of his warriors from the ancient region of Edeyrnion.’

 

‘A Welsh male voice choir based in the rural village of Llansannan in the heart of North Wales.’

 

Côr Meibion Colwyn is proud of its long history recognising that there has been a choir in its home village of Colwyn since the 1890’s. Welsh is its first language however its rehearsals are held in both the medium of English with a good content of Welsh conversation. This is so as not to exclude our non Welsh speaking members but to also give them the “Welshness” of the choir and opportunity to get to learn the language at the same time.’
