An external event with NEW Sinfonia

In honour of Dydd Miwsig Cymru our latest lunchtime chamber concert, with harpist Bethan Griffiths and soprano Kathy Macaulay, will feature an array of Welsh composers and springtime spectaculars!

Join us at Tŷ Pawb to hear musical treasures including Dilys Elwyn-Edwards’ stunning Songs of the Seasons, John Thomas’ joyful Spring, Gareth Glyn’s Erddigan, and Morfydd Owen’s soul-stirring Sinner’s Prayer. Our Welsh composers will be joined in concert by an array of treasured classics by Richard Strauss and Mozart.
