Open Day at Canolfan Gerdd William Mathias Denbigh!

Published on 26 June, 2017

An open day will be held by Canolfan Gerdd William Mathias Music Centre at Theatr Twm o’r Nant, Denbigh on Sunday the 9th of July.

There will be a variety of activities happening throughout the day including free music taster lessons on the harp, violin, singing and piano, Camau Cerdd (Steps in Music) project for young children, Junior Harp Ensemble for young harpists, and to finish a concert by the music centre’s students.

The day will begin with Camau Cerdd (Steps in Music) taster sessions with the tutor Charlotte Amy Green. The project introduces music in a fun and imaginative way to young children. There will be a session for children aged 15 months – 3 years old at 10:30am, and a session for children age 4 – 7 years old to follow at 11:30am. The sessions will be free, however booking is essential.

The Camau Cerdd has been taking place in Denbigh since two years with one session taking place at Hwb Dinbych and another at Theatr Twm o’r Nant on Monday afternoons during the school term.

The Junior Harp Ensemble will follow under the direction of Morwen Blythin and Dylan Cernyw which is aimed at young harpists up to grade 3 standard. Following the ‘Telynau Clwyd’ harp project which meets once a month at Hwb Dinbych, the ambition is to form a harp ensemble for younger harpists too.

Morwen Blythin, one of the ensemble’s leaders said:

“I’m looking forward to the Open Day at CGWM Denbigh in order to start the new harp ensemble for junior harpists. Practicing the harp by one’s self can be a lonely task sometimes, so having this opportunity to play with other harpists and have fun is of great benefit to the harpists in the area.”

In addition to these projects, there will be opportunities to have free taster lessons with the experienced tutors of Canolfan Gerdd William Mathias. Offered during the open day will be violin lessons with Alfred Barker, harp with Morwen Blythin, singing with Ann Atkinson and piano with Teleri-Siân.

According to violin tutor, Alfred Barker, “This open day is a wonderful opportunity for people who have been thinking of taking up an instrument or voice to have a free taster lesson and meet the experienced tutors that we have here at Canolfan Gerdd William Mathias.”

It is necessary to book your place before hand for the taster lessons by phoning the CGWM office.

To finish the open day there will be an informal ‘Llwyfan Cerdd’ concert at 3:30pm given by the music centre’s students. Tickets for the concert will be sold on the door.
