Well-known young talented musicians are set to perform at Carmarthenshire Theatre’s St David’s Day Concert at The Miners Theatre in Ammanford next month.

Sharing the stage will be ever popular Côr Meibion Dyffryn Aman with the evening skilfully held together by local celebrity Heddyr Gregory.

The concert is an inaugural event by Carmarthenshire Theatres, produced by Loud Applause Productions, to celebrate Welsh culture at its best.

Tickets are expected to be in demand.

Ysgol Dyffryn Aman features strongly in the line-up with Head Boy Osian Clarke and pupil Neve Summers as solo artists.

Performing also is clarinettist Catrin Soons, a former pupil, now studying at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama (RWCMD) in Cardiff.

They will be accompanied by an up and coming young accompanist Joseph Cavalli-Price who also studies at the same music conservatoire.

Côr Meibion Dyffryn Aman was established in 1990 by their current musical director Ian Llewelyn.

The current membership is 45 drawing choristers from the many towns and villages of the Amman Valley.

The choir has performed an impressive 270 concerts many for charity fundraising.

They have performed overseas in Ireland, France, Belgium and the Netherlands. Their popularity remains high.

Tenor Osian Clarke’s music career has taken a big leap over the past year and through his hard work in developing himself musically through his commitment in attending the Junior Conservatoire at the RWCMD, his experience gained by being a member of LARS (Loud Applause Rising Stars), passing his Grade 8 ABRSM Classical Singing exam and performing at many school events, shows and in concerts has helped him gain a place at the prestigious Royal Academy of Music in London, regarded the top music conservatoire in the United Kingdom.

Neve is also a popular soloist and is also a member of Llanelli-based LARS, which is an organisation which mentors and nurtures up and coming talented singers, providing staging opportunities and bursaries to their young members. Lars has 14 members aged between 14 and 24 year’s old performing all genres of music.

Under the auspices of LARS Neve has performed at Ffwrnes Theatre, Stradey Castle and Margam Orangery. Neve’s ambition like Osian is to become professional singers.

Catrin studies Clarinet performance at the RWCMD. She has been a member of the National Youth Orchestra of Wales and the National Youth Wind Orchestra and this year joins the BBC National Orchestra of Wales on a placement scheme.

Catrin is highly successful in competition and has received many awards.

20-year-old Joseph, from Neath, is a student at the RWCMD. Joseph was the recipient of the 2017 Welsh Association of Male Choirs J. Layton Watkins Memorial Award for young musician; as a result he was invited to accompany the massed choirs at the Welsh Festival of Music at the Royal Albert Hall.

In his ‘spare time’ he accompanies the Cardiff Arms Park Male Choir and Côr Caerdydd.
