On this special night in the acoustically excellent Mynyddbach Chapel, there’ll be wonderful performances from the Morriston Orpheus Choir, an exquisite solo performance, and there’ll be refreshments and a chance to meet the choir and the people of the Chapel, which has a unique and significant part to play in Welsh culture.
Formed in 1935 and enjoying an international reputation as a leading exponent of male choral singing, the Morriston Orpheus Choir is in constant demand performing around 25 engagements annually. The Choir undertakes performances on television, at national and promotional events and provides corporate and after-dinner entertainment. This famous Welsh male voice choir can provide a complete show, including solo artistes.
The Calon Lan Centre at Mynyddbach Chapel is well and truly “back open”, hosting choirs, even a recent performance by Bryn Terfel. The chapel is also frequently used by the BBC and other productions due to it’s location and acoustics. Historically, Mynyddbach Chapel was the place where Daniel James (Gwyrosydd), author of the anthem “Calon Lan” received the encouragement and inspiration to develop his poetic gift.
In a jointly hosted open evening, you’ll get to experience the beautiful choral sound of the choir in this magnificent chapel, and get to know both the people and the heritage.
This is a free evening, though please come early. Free parking can be found just in front of the Welcome Inn.
The Morriston Orpheus Choir has been frequently rehearsing inside Mynyddbach Chapel and were kind enough to record a rendition of Calon Lan for us as a taste of what’s to come!
