SIMPLY SPECTACULAR! - LAST NIGHT OF THE PROMS
The Hywel Girls’ Choir & Hywel Boy Singers don’t give concerts. Based on Saturday’s Last Night of the Proms at a packed Ffwrnes, they are creators of spectacular experiences!
1,000 balloons bounced across the audience. A sea of confetti. Hundreds of madly waved flags. A symphony orchestra. Massed choirs. International costumes. From giant works such as 1812 Overture to the ecstatic Land of Hope and Glory and Rule Britannia to poignant moments with Tributes to Aberfan and Salutes to WW2 Veterans – the night had it all!
Hosted by the Hywel choristers, the great maestro John Hywel Williams brought his usual magic to the night and a host of great artists and great performances followed.
We recently tele-recorded "Calon Lan" with Bryn Terfel at Mynyddbach Chapel, Swansea.
The event will be shown by S4C under a programme entitled Mam Wlad" at the end of July.
Below is a photo record of the event:-
