ST. DAVID'S DAY CONCERT TRIUMPH.
Photo shows two of Torfaen's much loved Choirs uniting in harmony at the finale of their recent concert on Saturday 29th February at St. David's Roman Catholic Church, Cwmbran.
The ladies of THE LINDEN SINGERS (formed in 2004) joined CROESYCEILIOG MALE CHOIR (formerly Gwent Police Choir formed 1969), in a celebratory concert to raise money for Ty Hafan the Children's Hospice of Wales.
The concert displayed the tremendous versatility and repertoire of both choirs and in the last two pieces a memorable joint performance was given of Morte Criste---Emrys Jones and appropriately our Welsh National Anthem --Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau. Congratulations to all concerned and to the musical teams.
The Conductor for these last two numbers was Alyson Jones of the Male Choir. Karen Middle was the Conductor of the Ladies Choir.
