The Denbigh branch of Canolfan Gerdd William Mathias Music Centre hosted an open day in July 2015. One of the activities held during the day was a harp group to assess the interest in forming a group that would meet on a regular basis in the area.
Prominent harpists Morwen Blythin and Dylan Cernyw lead the group, and a good response was received to the idea of forming a harp group that would meet regularly.
Morwen and Dylan were delighted by the progress made by the group during the session with the group succeeding to learn two new pieces and then giving an informal concert to the parents at the end.
Morwen Blythin said:
Learning and then performing two new pieces is a great achievement especially considering that this was the first time for the group to meet! Both Dylan and I are delighted that Canolfan Gerdd William Mathias are starting the Telynau Clwyd group on a regular basis.
Following this success, the harp group will be meeting once a month in Denbigh.
Telynau Clwyd are now inviting more members to join the group. Contact the Music Centre to register your interest in joining.
