At this moment in time Crickhowell is looking glorious in all its spring colours but one thing is sadly missing ...the equally sumptuous music that was to form this year's Music Festival courtesy of Crickhowell Choral Society.
Audiences were due to be thrilled by the stunning music of composers such as Purcell, Bach, Haydn, and Mozart, to name but a few. But good things are worth waiting for and, all being well, it is wonderful to know that our fabulous line up of soloists and players have readily agreed to make these same concerts a firm fixture in next year's calendar (First May bank holiday weekend 2021).
We are grateful to both them and all our local patrons and sponsors for supporting our music making and hope that next year's performance will be truly uplifting and a perfect remedy to these sobering times.
To mark this unusual time, the singers have rallied around their respective technologies, (often grappling with unforeseen odds!) to bring their supporters a small token of their appreciation and their irrepressible love of music making.
We would like to dedicate this virtual performance to the memory of our dear friend and talented musician Rhiannon Davies.
Meanwhile, here's to our musical future – and a reminder of the wonderful Festival last year:
