Our Gala Concert at St Mary’s Church, Denbigh on Saturday, November 25, is the highlight of our 2017 Concert calendar. It features soloists Sioned Terry and John Ieuan Jones.
Gala Concert Guest Soloist Sioned Terry
To followers of the choir she needs no introduction. She starred in our 2015 concert and ‘brought the house down’ with her fabulous performance.
It is, therefore, no surprise that we have invited her back again.
Although classically trained, Sioned is a very versatile performer.
Furthermore, her songs cover opera to popular songs. From stage and screen, lieder, oratorio and Welsh classics.
Sioned’s performances have seen her perform at prestigious events. Ranging from intimate classical music festivals to open air galas, televised concerts, live broadcasts from sporting events.
The latter also including a special performance for athletes from Team GB as they prepared to head out to the Commonwealth Games in 2014.
Ambassador for Rugby North Wales
This year, 2017, Sioned became a brand ambassador for Rugby North Wales. She has already enjoyed her role. Whether singing pitch-side to stir up the home crowd and players and contributing to award evenings.
Sioned is also an accomplished composer. She has released her first collection of songs for voice and piano, ‘The Angels’ Praise’, published by Curiad Music.
Gala Concert Guest Soloist John Ieuan Jones
The spectacular success of young baritone John Ieuan Jones, from Rhos on Sea, continues.
John Ieuan has won numerous prestigious awards and scholarships. This year he won the Blue Riband (Under 25) at the National Eisteddfod.
John Ieuan has previously appeared in concert with our choir at St John’s Church, Llandudno. It was a memorable performance. One that we are delighted to repeat at St Mary’s Church, Denbigh.
Harp Captivates Young John Ieuan
In fact, it was the sound of the harp that captivated the musical interest of a young John Ieuan Jones. Listening to his elder sister practicing on the harp gave 6 year old John Ieuan the desire to want to play.
The constant requests to his parents, Ann and Gareth, were finally answered. John Ieuan began having lessons. He has now attained an impressive grade eight in both the harp and the piano.
That’s all before his voice started developing. John Ieuan now possesses a rich, baritone voice and is currently in his third year of study at the Royal Northern College of Music.
Gala Concert Accompanist
Accompanying the choir and both guest soloists will be our own Nia Jones.
It will be a long and demanding evening for Nia. For certain, she will thrive on it.
