Côr Dôlafon at the Oratory School

Nine members of Côr Dôlafon, accompanied by their conductor Heather Davis and Ysgol Dôlafon teacher Mair Howells, travelled to The Oratory School in Oxfordshire where they took part in the Prep Schools’ Choral Vespers event. The outing was supported from the choir’s own funds, the Beulah Music Festival and the hospitality of the Oratory Prep School where the children stayed on Thursday night. We thank Gill Lloyd, head of Ysgol Dôlafon who, with her staff, managed the infernal details that accompany such ventures.
