Earlier this year I journeyed North to record for Dave Brons` new project `RETURN TO ARDA`
Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod
Other Activities - International Eisteddfod.
For four years it has been my privilege to join the Adjudication Team at one of the most unique and wonderful international music events in the World. This annual celebration of International Music, Song & Dance happens each July within the beautiful landscape of Llangollen, North Wales.
My main duty for the Eisteddfod was to adjudicate throughout the Celtic Day, where musicians, singers and dancers from all around the world gather and perform - it is always a joy to see and to hear each & every performer. It is a day of colour and joyful musical expression, from various Celtic traditions and backgrounds.
In addition to the Celtic Day I was also involved in other events such as Instrumental Music (classical & world traditions) and also various Choral performances (solo & ensemble). This included the splendid Choir of the World competition, which is the grand finale of this week. The winners of this annual event will take away with them the much coveted Pavarotti Prize. The International Musical Eisteddfod is a celebration of art & music unrivalled anywhere in the world! I count myself very fortunate indeed to have been a part of it`s history (and hope very much to return sometime in the future!).
Do please visit and explore (and if possible visit one day - you will not be disappointed!)
