We are pleased to be working with Elin Roberts as part of her music degree in Bangor University. Elin has been working with us to organise a series of concerts by former students. Here is a post from Elin discussing her work with the Canolfan:
As a former student of the William Mathias Music Centre and MMus student at Bangor University, I am very fortunate to have gained an ATM scholarship through which I am working for the Canolfan over the summer period. The ATM (European Social Fund) is a scholarship for masters students, supporting their studies and enabling them to work for a local company.
One of the tasks that I have been assigned to is organising a series of concerts over the summer, to include various former students of the William Mathias Music Centre. Many of these musicians are studying at a music college or have recently graduated and are embarking on a professional career. They are grateful for the opportunity to perform in their local area and everyone at the Canolfan is looking forward to seeing some of them return to North Wales!
These are the details of the concerts to come:
Meinir Wyn Roberts (soprano) and Steven Evans (piano)
Saturday afternoon, July 18, 3pm
Feed My Lambs Hall, Caernarfon
Gwyn Owen (trumpet) and Steven Evans (piano)
Thursday evening, August 13, 7pm
Powis Hall, Bangor University
More dates to follow soon!
