ROBERT LEWIS and ELLEN WILLIAMS were our STAR SOLOISTS on 5th March at St Johns Llandudno
Robert Lewis is from Llanfyllin and won the Tenor solo and the Blue Riband Competitions against each of the different voice winners at the National Eisteddfod at Meifod in 2015. In December 2015 many of you will have seen Robert as one of the star 10 tenors at the concert at Venue Cymru Arena and also the broadcast on S4C . Robert is completing a Masters in the Guildhall School of Music.
Ellen Williams is from Cowbridge and after graduating in Modern Languages she has sung extensively including the Edinburgh fringe, sharing the stage at various times with Rhidian, Catrin Finch and Wyn Evans. Ellen has performed in a very varied range of venues including Wembley Arena, Wales Millennium Centre, St Davids Hall, Fishguard International Festival and Lords Cricket ground. Like Robert she has a record of success at eisteddfodau. A special highlight was singing the part of the Minstrel in the Welsh Premier of Karl Jenkins` Bards of Wales. She has sung recently on S4C in a Noson Lawen and a Cymanfa Ganu. Ellen is studying a course in opera with Suzanne Murphy in the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in Cardiff.
We were privileged to have shared the concert with these two talented soloists at St Johns church and expect a bright future for the both of them.
