Council Congratulates Choir For Hitting The Right Note With Judges At Celtic Festival
Denbighshire County Council has congratulated talented students for their musical success at an international Pan Celtic Festival, held in Carlow, Ireland last week.
Côr Cytgan Clwyd is predominantly made up of students from Ysgol Glan Clwyd (St Asaph) and Ysgol Brynhyfryd (Ruthin), as well as individuals from other schools.
They competed against other choirs from Wales, Scotland and Ireland and took the top award in the male choir, female choir and open choir competition. Côr Cytgan Clwyd was also crowned the Festival Choir.
Karen Evans, Denbighshire’s Head of Education, said: “I would like to offer my sincerest congratulations to the choir on their phenomenal success at the festival.. Côr Cytgan Clwyd provides great opportunities for local singing talent to display their musical creativity and the choir has a well-earned reputation in Wales for its quality and talent.
“They can add another string to their musical bow, with the Pan Celtic honours to add to their list.
“The students and their conductor, accompanist and the whole support team are great ambassadors for Welsh culture and for Denbighshire.”
