4:50pm Wednesday 27th June 2012 in News
THE determination of the Penarth National Eisteddfod Fundraising Committee to continue bringing the finest quality entertainment to the town continues.
The staggering variety of what's on offer continues with a wonderful offer from one of Wales finest choirs to appear in Penarth.
Following the triumphs of the recent Max Boyce concert and the earlier appearances of the Pendyrus Choir and the Richard Williams Singers, this will be yet another major name attraction.
This time it will be a stylish performance by the 30-member Cantemus Chamber Choir, whom many will know from their appearances on Radio 2.
Cantemus, directed by Hugh Williams, are renowned for their fine interpretations of the works of J S Bach.
On this occasion they will present work to represent the two great events of the summer, the Olympic Games and the National Eisteddfod.
As well as Bach there will be music from around the world, encompassing composers such as Bruckner, Rossini, Mendelssohn, Grieg and Poulenc.
A highlight will be a performance of Welsh composer Paul Mealor's 'Ubi Caritas', which was written for last year's wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
The concert will be held at St Augustine's Church, Penarth, on Saturday, July 7, at 7.30pm.
Pre-concert tickets are available at £12 (£10 concessions) from Cantemus at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 0787 027 6427 or from Foxy's Deli, Penarth.
Proceeds will go to the National Eisteddfod to be held between August 4th and 11th at Llandow in the Vale of Glamorgan.
