Radio Ensemble Cymru

Children of Ysgol Tudno work with Ensemble Cymru musicians to promote well-being through music. The project was part of Venue Cymru’s annual Take pART 2021 festival for 0 to 18-year-olds and their families. The project was supported by Conwy Arts Trust.

Together with the Ensemble Cymru musicians, the children created the material for radio shows on the community radio ‘Radio Ensemble Cymru’. Each day they work with a different musician and present a different animal and musical instrument. Through devising and recording content they learnt digital and collaborative skills as well as building confidence and improving their communication and language.

Radio Ensemble Cymru was broadcast daily from 22 March to 16 April through the Ensemble Cymru website:
