Hello from Denbigh & District Male Voice Choir
Date: April 4, 2014
Hello everyone from Denbigh & District Male Voice Choir, based in an old Castle & Market Town situated in the beautiful Vale of Clwyd, North Wales, UK.
We are new members to Choral Net and I just wanted to tell you something about the choir.
We were formed in 1988, and our founder Musical Director and Conductor was Phyllis Dryhurst-Dodd,M.B.E. Unfortunately, Phyllis passed away in 2001, and the baton was passed to our Deputy Conductor and founder member, Arwyn Roberts who is still our conductor. Arwyn was also a founder member and Deputy Conductor of the renowned Cantorion Colin Jones and a very experienced Bass Soloist. Arwyn's extensive experience and natural musical ability has improved the choir immensely. He puts a great emphasis on voice production and vocal techniques.
The choir has travelled extensively performing concerts, both at home and abroad.
2013 was the choir's 25th Anniversaryyear which we celebrated in style. In October, we travelled to our twintown of Beibertal near Frankfurt and performed a number of concerts. In November we held a 25th Anniversary Gala Concert starring the famous welsh Tenor, Rhys Meirion, who in January 2014 performed at the Carnegie Hall, New York. Also starring in the concert was Annette Bryn-Parri, an intenationally known concert pianist and accompanist.
