Silver Band to play at Picnic in the Park


* Llangollen Silver Band play at last year's successful Picnic in the Park.

This Saturday (June 28) Llangollen Silver Band are holding a Picnic in the Garden musical event in the grounds of Plas Newydd in aid of Llangollen Christmas lights.
 
The programme starts at 3pm when Chem the town cryer will welcome everyone to Plas Newydd.
 
Music will begin with the youth band presenting a 30-minute programme, including solo performances and ensemble playing.
 
The training band will play next before the five-piece Welsh girl band Paradwys do a 30-minute set, including solos performed on both the harp and keyboards.
 
The girls will perform two of their own compositions as a unit and a vocal duet accompanied by the harp will round off their set.
 
Special guest artist this year is local girl Karen Davies, an operatic soprano singer.
 
Her set will include Gershwin's well-loved Summertime. Karen will be accompanied by Owen Roberts on piano.
 
To round off the event the senior band will play the final set of the afternoon.
 
The weather forecast is looking good for the day and the event is due to finish around 5.30pm  to 6pm.
 
Conductor Trevor Williams said: "The band are thrilled to be able to organise this event in conjunction with Plas Newydd to assist in raising funds towards something that will be of benefit to Llangollen town residents, businesses and visitors for many years to come.
 
"We wish everyone involved with Llangollen Christmas Lights every success in reaching their target figure."
