AN evening of vocal music is guaranteed to raise the roof in Bangor.

Pontio is presenting a Celebratory Concert featuring Côr Aelwyd JMJ, Côr Seiriol and Côr y Brythoniaid.

Presented by Anni Llŷn with soloists Gwen Elin and Cai Fôn, it is being held at 7.30pm, on Friday, September 27.

Aelwyd JMJ achieved huge success at Eisteddfod yr Urdd in Cardiff this year.

The Welsh language halls of residence at Bangor University, had an Eisteddfod to remember as they won medals in six vocal competitions: the vocal ensemble, the cerdd dant choir, the women’s group, the male group and the choir up to 40 in number and the choir over 40 in number – they swept the board!

They can all be seen performing at Pontio’s Theatr Bryn Terfel.

Joining them will be two well known local choirs Côr Seiriol, led by Gwennant Pyrs, that has won the main prize at the Gwyl Gerdd Dant festival more than ten times.

Joining them will be Côr Meibion y Brythoniaid from the Blaenau Ffestiniog area, having won the main prize recently at the Mrs Sunderland festival in Huddersfield and led by John Eifion. Both choirs come together to create Llechan Lân.

With the Bryn Terfel Scholarship competition on the horizon, Pontio says it is also “delighted” to invite a former Bangor University student and former winner of the Prize, Gwen Elin and one of this year’s competitiors Cai Fôn, to the stage.

Cai is currently in his second year studying History and Welsh at Bangor and will head down to Barry to compete in October. Tickets from Pontio Box Office on 01248 382828.
