Urdd Eisteddfod Success for CGWM students

Published on 3 June, 2015

Congratulations to the following students who receive their tuition at CGWM on their success in the National Urdd Eisteddfod last week :

Strings Solo Year 7-9 : Gwydion Rhys 3rd   Tutor : Nicki Pearce

Girls’ Solo Year 7-9 : Llio Meirion Rogers 2nd   Tutor : Ann Atkinson

Piano Solo Yr. 10 – under 19 : Math Roberts 2nd  Tutor : Iwan Llewelyn-Jones

Woodwind Solo Yr.10 – under 19 : Megan Hunter 2nd  Tutor : Rhiannon Mathias

Song from a Musical for singers aged 19-25 : Gwen Elin 3rd   Tutor : Mary Lloyd-Davies

Congratulations also to Mabon Llyr who is a member of CGWM’s chamber duo for winning 3rd prize in the Strings Solo for Year 10- under 19 years.

We look forward to seeing Gwen Elin and one of our ex-students Meinir Wyn Roberts (now studying at the Royal Academy of Music, London) taking part in the Bryn Terfel Scholarship competition in the Autumn. Good luck to you both and well done for being selected.

We were thrilled to hear about Math Roberts’ success in the Composer’s Medal competition. 15 year old Math’s composition for the harp was awarded second place in the competition which was open to composers under the age of 25 – quite an achievement. Math studies the harp with Elinor Bennett at CGWM and started composing the piece during the composition workshops arranged by CGWM as part of the 2014 Wales International Harp Festival.

Congratulations also to all the students who were successful in other competitions including recitation, ensembles and choirs during the week
