AMMANFORD Miners' Theatre welcomes popular Cardiff-based choir CF1 to the venue later this month for a special performance in support of the Carmarthenshire National Eisteddfod 2014.
Cor CF1 formed in 2002, with members originating from all over Wales, including Ammanford's very own Richard Vaughan, the choir's assistant musical director and accompanist.
Richard, a graduate from Royal Holloway, University of London, is an accomplished pianist having twice won the National Urdd Eisteddfod of Wales along with winning the coveted pianist of the festival award. He is a regular accompanist on S4C programmes and is in demand as a session musician and voice over artist.
He has been musical director of the Cardiff Blues choir since September 2010, winning the mixed choir competition at the North Wales choral festival and the Cheltenham festival of performing arts.
Richard, a former Ysgol Dyffryn Aman pupil, has been a professional piano tutor since the age of 15 and continues to teach privately.
CF1 choir opened the Wales Millennium Centre in 2004, and have played at the Millinnium Stadium on a number of occasions before international rugby matches.
They have left their mark on America, Poland, Canada and Ireland, and now it's your chance to see them in the Miners' Theatre, on Saturday, January 25 at 7.30pm.
