Five lower Swansea Valley primary schools took part in the final of our 5th annual competition in Tabernacle Chapel, Morriston to win the J. Layton Watkins Trophy and £200. Adjudicator Eric Jones praised all the schools, their teachers and families for helping the choirs reach an excellent standard. Although there was hardly anything to choose between first and second places, Trallwn Primary School (under Ms Emma Rees) was eventually awarded the trophy. All the other schools received a plaque and £50, with all participating choristers receiving a commemoration certificate.
While adjudicators D. Huw Rees and Eric Jones were deliberating, Morriston RFC Male Choir sang All By Myself and O Nefol Addfwyn Oen, conducted by Deputy Musical Director Glyn Williams and accompanied by Hywel Evans.
It had been a privilege to see the enthusiasm and enjoyment of the children, most of whom had never been in such an awe-inspiring building before. Our hope and intention is that experiences such as this will encourage them to perpetuate a love of music as they progress through the education system and beyond.
