NEW Sinfonia @ NWIMF 2018

NEW Sinfonia with Côr Glanaethwy & Telynau Clwyd

Join NEW Sinfonia in St Asaph Cathedral as we take up our position as Orchestra in Residence at the North Wales International Music Festival (NWIMF) for 2018.

For our first performance we will be joined on stage by the fantastic Côr Glanaethwy and Telynau Clwyd. The theme for this years festival is Reflections and there are many references in our programme to composers affected by War.

The highlight of the programme will be the World Premiere of a new elegy by renowned composer Paul Mealor, which uses the harrowing words of the Rudyard Kipling poem, “My Boy Jack”. This will be narrated during the performance by local poet Aled Lewis Evans.
