The choir sang at Conwy Castle for the first time since it was built and we can say that with some certainty even though its been there since the 13th Century. Another point to be made is that it was built by Edward 1 to keep out the Welsh but that also in his plan he made it very difficult to get a digital piano into the castle with steep slopes, steps and uneven paths. Also add to that he didn’t make it any easier to play with not many 13 amp sockets available to plug into, however three 20 metre extensions finally got us plugged in ready for our accompanist to play.
All joking apart it was a great experience, superb acoustics for outdoors with Calon Lan reverberating from the walls. The event was organised by CADW in celebration of 30 years a World Heritage Sites. Also as you’d expect the opportunity for visitors from far and wide to listen to us singing. So the Welsh were back following in the footsteps of Owain Glyndwr in 1401.
