25TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR
This year’s Britain’s Got Talent finalists Welsh choir group, Côr Glanaethwy have announced a very special UK tour for 2015.
After wowing judges and audiences alike at their audition and live shows with their spine-tingling rendition of Benedictus and The Prayer, the 160-plus strong choir stormed straight to the finals where they sang Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’. A strong favourite to win, they came third in the prime-time talent show and received support from all over the country and from a host of celebrities, with judge David Walliams describing their performance as 'completely magical.’
Cefin Roberts is the choir’s musical director and the Co-Founder of drama school Ysgol Glanaethwy. Opened in 1990 by Cefin and his wife Rhian, they wanted to offer performing opportunities to children and young adults of north Wales. The school has since been hugely successful nationally and internationally with the senior choir coming runner-up in the BBC’s Last Choir Standing in 2008; the junior choir won the BBC Children’s Choir of The Year title in 2014. Regular winners at the Music For Youth Festival, Glanaethwy members have received several Outstanding Performance Awards as well as attending festivals all over the world. They recently won two gold medals at the Choir of the World competition in Shaoxing, China.
Celebrating their 25th anniversary milestone, Côr Glanaethwy will perform six dates across the UK throughout September, October and November 2015. Renowned for their stunning unprecedented vocal arrangements, they will showcase highlights from their extensive repertoire from classical to modern. This enchanting, mesmerising show will be an evening that cannot be missed.
“All the members of Côr Glanaethwy are really excited about their UK tour in the autumn. Choir rehearsals have been doubled for the coming weeks and I am already working on the script to what promises to be a thoroughly entertaining evening.”
