The performance of Haydn’s Seven Last Words Quartets at Beulah Chapel on Holy Saturday was accompanied by readings, poetry and songs on the theme of Remembering 1914. There was a small exhibition of memorabilia and a thematic image was projected for each word.
All the proceeds, amounting to £105.20 were donated to Help for Heroes.
This year’s recipient is ‘cellist Lois Flower, a pupil at Brecon High School.
She will play in the Mervyn Bourdillon Memorial Concert on 12 October. She performed with the Festival Ensemble last year in Mozart’s Gran Partita.
We are pleased to announce that this celebrated men’s choir will join us in the Mervyn Bourdillon Memorial Concert on 12 October at Eglwys Oen Duw. The programme will include orchestral pieces from the Festival Ensemble and will be finalised as soon as possible.
