NEWTOWN and District Male Voice Choir hold their annual concert at the town’s Hafren theatre for the first time this Saturday night, May 18.

They will be joined by local tenor Aled Wyn Davies, and mezzo soprano Sioned Terry, with accompanist Menna Griffiths, plus compere Geraint Peate.

Aled Wyn Davies, from Llanbrynmair, is returning to perform with the choir, following a well-received appearance at last year’s annual concert.

Still working as a farmer by day, Aled has achieved great success as a soloist across Wales, winning the famous ‘Blue Riband’ prize at the National Eisteddfod in Swansea in 2006.

Since then, he has performed all over the world, and has also released two albums, 'Nodau Aur fy Nhân' in 2006, and 'Erwau’r Daith' in 2015. In 2014, he joined Rhys Meirion and Aled Hall as one of the Three Welsh Tenors.

Originally from North Wales, classically trained mezzo soprano Sioned Terry performs a range of songs spanning genres from opera to popular songs from stage and screen, lieder, oratorio and Welsh classics.

County Times:

She is a familiar face on S4C, having recorded performances for several popular light entertainment programmes, including 'Dechrau Canu Dechrau Canmol' and 'Noson Lawen'. Her first EP, 'Think of Me / Cofia Fi', was published in 2013, and she is also a composer, having published a collection of songs for voice and piano. Sioned also performs across Wales as part of the female trio Athena.

The choir will be conducted by musical director Sarah Astley-Davies, and accompanied by Greg Jenkins

The concert starts at 7.30pm and tickets are £15 each, are available from The Hafren website, by phoning 0186 614555 or by emailing
