Harlequin/Living Waters tour countdown….

Here’s a very short update….

Yesterday was a busy one…I travelled to Cardiff to play in a lunchtime concert with Peryn (clarinet) and Harvey(piano) at Beulah URC Church Rhiwbina. It was great to see so many people in the audience – and I really hope to see some of them at the weekend.

The concert was well received. Peryn and Harvey played some old classics as well as some lesser know works for clarinet and piano. I joined in for the finale to play Ponchielli’s Il Convegno…..Italian fun and acrobatics for two clarinets and piano!

I returned home to Bangor today to celebrate the Centenary of the birth of my Taid, the Poet, Griffith John Roberts with the children of Ysgol Chwilog. Taid grew up in Eifionydd and was a pupil at Ysgol Chwilog. The kids put on a great show! Thanks to the children, the teachers and to Twm Morus for all their hard work.

Now I am packing to return to South Wales tomorrow. I’ll get an early train to Newport, and then meet Rosalind for a rehearsal at the Riverfront. I’ll then be rehearsing the main concert repertoire with Ensemble Cymru in preparation for the big night on Saturday!

This past week has involved a lot of practice and preparations – including spending a lot of time creating Rosalind and my Harlequin outfits!

Intrigued….then come along this weekend! Hope to see you there!
