The Morriston Orpheus Choir has been entertaining audiences home and abroad for over 75 years. It achieved its first success at the Royal National Eisteddfod in Machynlleth in 1937, going on to win at the ‘National’ on six further occasions. Over the years the focus of the Choir has changed and successive Musical Directors have developed and broadened the repertoire. Variety is now the hallmark of the Choir’s performances. Whilst it no longer takes part in competitions, its members in the 21st century do not forget the eminence which their predecessors achieved, and they constantly strive to maintain the musical excellence in which audiences delight.
Within the United Kingdom the Choir is in constant demand, with around 25 engagements a year, including many devoted to assisting national and local good causes.
Described by the then First Minister for Wales, Rhodri Morgan, as Ambassadors for Wales, the Choir regularly undertakes concert tours overseas and has been received enthusiastically in a number of visits to major cities in North America, New Zealand and Australia, including standing ovations at its appearances in the Sydney Opera House and New York’s Carnegie Hall. The Choir features regularly on TV and its recordings, which number more than 60 (as well as featuring on more than 100 compilation CDs and LPs), are in great demand on radio programs.
Join the choir for this special 2CD concert which features the stunning Nella Fantasia, How Lovely are Thy Dwellings, The Prayer and the song that brings the house down every time: Time to Say Goodbye.
