Calling singers for eisteddfod's celebration chorus

* A chorus on song at an earlier Llangollen Eisteddfod.

Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod is calling for passionate singers to join a special Celebration Chorus to mark this year's 70th anniversary of the festival.

An open session for people interested in taking part is being held at St John’s Church in Abbey Road on Saturday January 28, from 10am-1pm.

The chorus will sing during the eisteddfod performing Calling All Dawns by Christopher Tin on Wednesday July 5 to a live audience in the International Pavilion.

Festival musical director Eilir Griffiths said: “The Celebration Chorus has been a highlight of the International Eisteddfod in previous years and we’re excited to continue this proud tradition as we celebrate our 70th anniversary.

“Every year the support from the local community is overwhelming and it’s fantastic to see people actively getting involved in the eisteddfod.

“We encourage anyone with a passion for singing to join us at rehearsals and be part of a special performance of this song-cycle which, with its message of unity, is entirely appropriate for the eisteddfod stage.

"Entry to the chorus is open to anyone who is able to commit to the rehearsal schedule but previous choral experience would be an advantage.

“So, whether you’re a soprano, alto, tenor or bass – or even if you’re not sure what you are - we need you!”

Spaces in the chorus are limited.
