Harpist Elinor Bennett and cellist Nicki Pearce will appear at a concert organised by Canolfan Gerdd William Mathias Music Centre at the Bodnant Welsh Food Centre at 4:00pm on Sunday the 29 January 2017.
The prominent harpist and cellist are both tutors at Canolfan Gerdd William Mathias, a charity which provides one to one music tuition at its centres in Caernarfon and Denbigh, as well as a wide range of other music activities across North Wales.
Elinor Bennett was one of the founders of Canolfan Gerdd William Mathias and has been teaching the harp at the centre since the very beginning. She said: “It’s wonderful to see Canolfan Gerdd William Mathias expanding its provision and I’m looking forward very much to performing solo pieces and duets with Nicki Pearce at this special concert.”
The concert will also give an opportunity for some of the music centre’s students to perform.
Director of Canolfan Gerdd William Mathias, Meinir Llwyd Roberts said: “The string ensembles which are coached by Nicki Pearce, provide an excellent opportunity for young musicians to come together and enjoy performing as part of a group
“A number of the members also come to us for one to one lessons and being a part of the ensembles is a great way of developing their musical skills.”
James Scourse, a Professor at the School of Ocean Sciences, Bangor University will appear with Nicki Pearce and the Senior Cello Ensemble to perform the Double Cello Concerto by Vivaldi during the concert.
