Pontyberem Memorial Hall Concert With Gruff WynOn December 8th at Pontyberem Memorial Hall the band performed alongside Côr Llanddarog a’r Cylch and a Choir from Ysgol Pontyberem at a grand concert organized by the Hall Committee in support of the main artist Gruffudd Wyn from Anglesey, winner of Britain’s Got Talent.
The band led by band president Julian Jones were proud to have been invited to this prestigious event and to receive positive feedback on the performance.
Successful Christmas ConcertThe band held its own Christmas Concert at Pontyberem Memorial Hall on Friday December 14th. The band under Musical Director Craig Roberts performed a number of Christmas arrangements that were well received by the audience. Sharing the stage were the pupils of Ysgol Maes y Gwendraeth and their talented pupils provided an excellent and varied programme of entertainment.
The school band led admirably by Jacquie Scaife played nicely, captivating the audience as did the vocal ensemble and senior school choir led by Music Coordinator Mrs. Nicky Roderick – seeing so many youngsters showing their talents on stage is indeed a credit to Ysgol Maes y Gwendraeth. The band would like to thank compere Mrs. Deris Williams, the school’s staff, programme sponsors as well as the local community for supporting the event.
Another Busy Carolling SeasonSince the concert, the band have been busy supporting Carol Concerts or Services at various venues including Tumble Memorial Hall, Carmel Apostolic Church, Bancffosfelen and Crwbin Public Hall and the Red Lion Llandyfaelog in support of Côr Meibion Dyffryn Tywi. Then the band has been carolling around Llansaint, Pontyberem, Bancffosfelen, Crwbin, Llangyndeyrn and Mynyddcerrig.
You might also have heard members playing at Tesco or Morrissons supermarkets Carmarthen. It has been an extremely hectic time for the members but the money raised is the lifeblood of the band. The band would like to thank the local communities for their loyal support. This is truly appreciated. Diolch yn fawr iawn.
