The Choir Trip to Cardiff is almost here. A whole weekend away. You can sense mounting excitement among the choir members.
Reminiscence therapy session over. Back to reality. The choir is going to Cardiff, our capital city in October.
Furthermore, the weekend away takes a lot of careful planning. It needs a practical and organised person.
The choir has just the man in Gron Wynne. Not only is he the Trip Coordinator, he is also the choir treasurer.
Choir Trip to Cardiff Itinerary
What about the weekend itinerary? You can guarantee there will be plenty of singing.
During Friday’s southward coach journey Geraint Roberts will have us singing sooner than Max Boyce can say Oggy Oggy Oggy.
Friday evening at the Cardiff North Premier Inn will see more singing.
Especially if someone is celebrating a Birthday or Anniversary. Or celebrating anything for that matter.
Then on Saturday, there is opportunity to visit St Fagans National Museum of History. We can see the original 17th century Denbigh Cockpit, dismantled and rebuilt at St Fagan in 1965.
We may also visit the National Welsh Museum and other tourist attractions. Such as the magnificent shrine of Welsh rugby, the Principality Stadium.
If we can’t sing inside we can sing outside.
‘Bread of Heaven, Bread of Heaven, Feed me till I want no more.’
Choir Trip to Cardiff Concert
Later we attend a short rehearsal for our evening concert at Eglwys y Crwys, Richmond Road, Cardiff. Details on the poster below:
We are looking forward to meeting up and performing with our special guest artiste, Caryl Parry Jones. Caryl also became our Choir President this year.
Caryl will bring her vast performing experience and inimitable humour to the concert. Of course, she is also a singer of renown.
Despite her obvious sense of humour, her own musical compositions can be sensitive and poignant.
Proceeds of our concert go to the ‘Living Room Cardiff, Opening the Door to a New Life’. Now in its 10th year, this community based recovery centre deals with all forms of addiction. Wynford Ellis Owen, former writer, actor and director working in theatre and television is the CEO.
Now, Sir Wynff really is the boss. Raslas mawr! You may have to hit the search buttons for a solution.
In addition, on the way home – afternoon tea at Ludlow, one of the most attractive towns in England.
What a weekend in prospect. We’ll tell you all about it at a later date.
