The charity concert for St Kentigern’s Hospice at St Dyfnog’s Church, Llanrhaeadr provided a fine start to the choir’s new season. In addition, it also gave ample opportunity for photographer Hywel Evans to record the happy scene.
Charity Concert Welcome
Sandra Evans, on behalf of the of the St Kentigern’s Hospice, extended a warm welcome to everyone.
Compere Clwyd Wynne introduced Nia Jones, the choir’s new accompanist. Her first public performance with the choir since her appointment.
Soloist Jane Hartley
Jane Hartley, mezzo-soprano, always endears herself to audiences due to a fine collection of songs. She asked for the Denbigh Boy Band to accompany her with an arrangement of ‘All Through the Night.’
Jane also thanked Nia Jones for her impeccable accompaniment.
Finally, Sandra Evans thanked the audience for their attendance and standing ovation. Presentations were made to Nia Jones, Arwyn Roberts, Jane Hartley and Clwyd Wynne.
It is evident from the photographs that the choristers had enjoyed the evening. In addition, our music director and conductor, Arwyn Roberts, expressed satisfaction with the performance.
Most of all, Nia Jones contributed to the success of the evening. Especially since her recent appointment only enabled her to attend a handful of practices. An assured and competent performance.
A very warm welcome Nia – Croeso cynnes i’n plith.
