We’re looking forward to welcoming some wonderful soloists to join us on stage this weekend for our performance of the Messiah.
The soprano role is sung by Amy Carson, who has sung as a soloist with The Sixteen, Monteverdi Choir, Gabriel Consort, and the Orchestra of the Age of the Enlightenment. She is joined by mezzo-soprano Catherine Backhouse, a founder member of a capella vocal group Voces8. Welsh tenor Rhodri Prys Jones, who has sung leading roles with the Welsh National Opera and Opera North will be joining them, and the baritone role will be sung by Geoff Williams, whose extensive concert performances have seen him perform with the Scherzo Ensemble, the Villiers quartet, and the London Mozart Players.
We will also be joined by Réjouissance, the period ensemble in residence at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, who will be accompanying us on period instruments.

We’re looking forward to welcoming you to the Brangwyn Hall for what promises to be a beautiful evening of festive music!
