About This Event
Welsh folk group Calan join BBC NOW to mark St David’s Day with a UK premiere of Cân Cnawd y Pridd – a suite of five compositions inspired by collections of traditional Welsh songs and tunes at the National Library of Wales. The suite, dedicated to the memory of Meredydd Evans - one of the most important song collectors of the 20th Century - is a joint commission between BBC NOW and Orchestre Symphonique de Bretagne.
Cardiff Singer of the World Song Prize finalist Angharad Lyddon also joins the Orchestra to sing 3 Welsh songs and BBC National Chorus of Wales perform Brian Hughes’ Noa.
Members of the National Youth Orchestra of Wales will play side by side with BBC NOW and a performance by male voice choir Côr Meibion Taf will take place in the interval. A perfect way to celebrate Wales’ national day!
Concessions, Student Tickets and Family Tickets available.
