Our first concert in Neath for a very long time was to help raise funds for Melin Infants School, and supporting local children. Compered admirably (and emotionally) by Rev. Lynn Maddocks, and coincidentally taking place on Children In Need Day, we were joined by Parti Llwchwr ladies choir and the children of Melin Infants School.
The children opened the concert and were a great success, drawing appreciative applause from the capacity audience. They were so well rehearsed that they didn’t even need a conductor! They ended their sequence of songs with an animated encore, which Lynn Maddocks joined in from the pulpit.
Parti Llwchwr have an enviable and well-deserved reputation for excellence, and led by Janet Jones, accompanied by D. Huw Rees, they sang six beautiful songs from their repertoire, including Calon Lân to the tune of The Rose, and Lausanne, during which several people were visibly moved.
Our own performance was conducted by D. Huw Rees and accompanied by Hywel Evans. We were joined by Parti Llwchwr in Anfonaf Angel and O Gymru, which brought a standing ovation from the wonderful audience. It was good to see that many of the young children and their families had stayed to listen to the performances of the two senior choirs, and we hope that nights like this will inspire them to keep singing as they progress through the education system and beyond.
The Choir would like to thank the ladies of the chapel for the fantastic buffet that we enjoyed after the concert, and we look forward to another invitation to sing for our supper!
