Kate Griffiths Singing Career
Raised in the delightfully named village of Betws Gwerfil Goch. She now resides at the equally impressive Bryn Saith Marchog.
Husband, Emrys and their three children, Tryfan, Gwennol and Gwyddon complete the family.
From day to day she is the Manager/Leader at the Welsh Medium Nursery Schools – Cylch Meithrin Rhuthun and Cylch Meithrin Pwllglas.
To state the obvious, Kate enjoys singing and competing at various competitions. Moreover, she has competed with success in the National Eisteddfod.
Consequently, winning the soprano solo competition. Thereby competing in the prestigious Blue Riband competition on a number of occasions.
In short, Kate leads a very busy life. Invitations to sing nationally are plentiful. Taking part in numerous recitals is also memorable.
Furthermore, highlights include performances of the Messiah, Samson, Nelson Mass, Mozart Mass in C Minor and Creation to name a few.
Kate’s fresh and easy-sounding soprano voice, backed by a formidable technique, also lends itself to operatic arias.
The intensity of Donna Anna’s ‘Non mi dir’ from Don Giovanni. Or the filigree precision of Haydn’s ‘With Verdure Clad’ from The Creation.
Kate is coached by the vastly experienced Brian Hughes of Gresford.
