A Llanfyllin school choir returned from a European tour to delight local people with a performance at a Powys church.

Gloria's Gang, fresh from their French tour, performed to an overflowing crowd at St Myllin's Church.

The performance, part of a coffee morning at this thriving local musical hotspot, drew fans from far afield to witness the choir from Ysgol Llanfyllin in full flow, courtesy of their energetic music teacher, Gloria Griffiths.

The choir performed their songs in both English and Welsh.

St Myllin's Day, falling on June 15, is set for more harmonious splendour with both Quindici Chamber Choir and the Vivace Choir from Llanfyllin being part of the line-up.

The vibrancy continues into July, as on the 5th, the long-standing Llanfyllin Music Festival will commence.

One of the highlights includes the Creswick Quartet, once globally renowned as the Allegri Quartet.

Come December 8, the Guilsfield Singers will add to the merry season of Christmas with a melodic concert at the church.

Boasting a unique asset, St Myllin’s houses an original Wrigley of Rochdale organ from 1852, expanded by George Benson of Manchester in 1908.

This antique, one the remaining few Benson organs, and it is worth preserving and refurbishing, according to Professor David Titherington of the Royal College of Music.

The Llanfyllin Music Festival Committee is confident this refurbished organ will become the new focal point of future festivals, further upholding St Myllin's rich musical legacy.
