The Red Lady of Paviland

Discussion in 'The Auditorium - Concert Details' started by Burry Port Town Band, Mar 2, 2010.

  1. Drawn from a cave on the Gower Peninsula, the 20000 year old ochre-stained bones of the Red Lady of Paviland provide the inspiration for this unique and imaginative presentation of Welsh brass and vocal music, history and mythology.

    The performance features current Welsh League Champions Burry Port Town Band alongside award winning tenor Robyn Lyn, Royal Harpist Claire Jones, mixed choir Cor Seingar and Massed Children's Chorus.

    Alongside performances of Gareth Glyn's 'Dolbadarn' and Edward Gregson's 'An Age of Kings', the centrepiece of the preformance will be the premiere of ‘Y Dyn Unig’ [The Lonely Man], a new and evocative cantata for tenor and harp soloist, mixed choir, children's chorus and brass band by platinum-album selling Welsh composer Andrew Powell, libretto by leading poet Menna Elfyn. The performance will be presented by eminent scientist Professor Mark Brake.

    The project is supported by a Steps to New Music Award from the PRSF and the Arts Council of Wales, with additional support from Ty Cerdd
