Trios and Quartets
String Ensembles at Canolfan Gerdd William Mathias meet on a weekly basis for ½ or ¾ hour sessions. Currently we have . 4 ensembles – Junior and Senior Piano Trio and Junior and Senior String Quartet
All Ensembles perform regularly at Canolfan Gerdd William Mathias concerts and in the wider community at Eisteddfodau and events. Past performances have included a senior string quartet working with Catrin Finch, a Baroque Trio Sonata group working with Iwan Llewelyn-Jones, and an expanded string ensemble working with the Mavron string quartet from Cardiff on the Mendelssohn Octet and Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto no 3. Performance venues have included the North Wales International Music Festival at St Asaph and Neuadd John Ambrose (Rhuthin) to promote the new branch of Canolfan Gerdd in Denbigh.
