Trinity Tenors Prepare to Wow Audiences as they Return to Carmarthen

03.04.2014

On Saturday, April 26th some of the University of Wales Trinity Saint David’s (UWTSD) most talented musical alumni are returning to Carmarthen for a magical evening of song.

The accomplished tenors - Rhys Meirion, Robyn Lyn, Rhodri Jones, Luke McCall and Gareth Davies - will all perform at the Halliwell Theatre on UWTSD's Carmarthen campus, and will delight audiences with a range of operatic areas and musical theatre show-stoppers.

Gwilym Dyfri Jones, Provost of the Carmarthen campus, said: “It is with great pleasure that we welcome our former students back to the University for what promises to be a wonderful evening of song. The five tenors are familiar to audiences across Wales and although they’re all former students, the singers have never performed together as the ‘Trinity Tenors’ before.

“We are therefore very fortunate that they’ve come together to perform at the Halliwell to raise money for the University of Wales Trinity Saint David appeal committee for the Carmarthenshire National Eisteddfod 2014.”

The University choir will also join the Tenors on stage, with Eilir Owen Griffiths conducting and Meirion Wynn Jones accompanying. Mr Sulwyn Thomas will host the evening, which will be through the medium of Welsh.

Trinity Tenors starts at 7.30pm and will be held at the Halliwell Theatre on the Carmarthen campus of UWTSD. Tickets cost £15 for full-paying adults, £10 for concessions and £5 for children under 16, and are available by calling 01267 676806 (9.30am-12.30pm Mon-Fri) or by visiting www.ticketsource.co.uk/tsd

All proceeds from the concert will go towards the University of Wales Trinity Saint David Appeal committee for the National Eisteddfod of Wales which will be held in Carmarthenshire this August.
