Location: Great Hall
Formed in 1935, the internationally-acclaimed Morriston Orpheus Choir enjoys a reputation as a leading exponent of male choral singing. 2018 saw them touring to Vienna and Krakow, and 2019 is off to a swinging start, with highlights so far including a joint concert to celebrate the 70th anniversary of another local musical group, and singing onboard the Saga Pearl II cruise ship before she departed on her farewell tour of Africa.
Under our Musical Director, Joy Amman-Davies, the choir performs a wide variety of music in English, Welsh and other languages. She has built on our vast repertoire that includes gospel music, West End favourites, operatic pieces, religious material, and of course the Welsh classics. There is an ongoing process to introduce new works and to re-visit and hone the existing numbers.
The highlight of the year is always the Annual Gala Concert, and we are delighted to return to the Great Hall, at Swansea University’s Bay Campus. This year we will be joined on stage by soloists Trystan Llŷr Griffiths, a tenor, and Huw Euron, bass.
Tickets will be £18 and are available on the Taliesin website, and via their box office on 01792 604900 / 604999
