Cor Abergwaun, a mixed choir based in Fishguard in Pembrokeshire, are supporting Prostate Cymru at their summer concert on 7th June. The concert, which starts at 7:30pm, takes place at Capel Blaenconin in Llandissilio. The choir will be conducted by Amanda Lawrence and accompanied by Margaret Rhys.

Cor Abergwaun was formed in 1986 after the National Eisteddfod was held in the town of Fishguard. The choir, which has up to 50 members, aims to promote Welsh choral culture in the area. Practices for their year of concerts are held on Monday evenings in school term time in the Hermon Chapel in Fishguard.

Joining the choir, whose repertoire includes modern and traditional music in both Welsh and English, are soloists Jessica Robinson and Steffan Rhys Hughes. Jessica Robinson, who hails from Pembrokeshire, is a soprano whose love for singing began when competing in local eisteddfodau when she was young. Jessica studied opera performance at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama and is now a successful freelance singer who has performed both nationally with renowned male voice choirs and internationally. Steffan Rhys Hughes, a tenor from North Wales, was also a frequent competitor at eisteddfodau. Since completing a music degree at Cardiff University, Steffan’s career has gone from strength to strength. Steffan is a member of award winning group Only Men Aloud, presents a musical theatre show on BBC Radio Cymru and voices Welsh children’s cartoons on S4C. Steffan has supported Prostate Cymru previously, performing the Welsh National Anthem at the start of the charity’s Big Walk event in 2018.

Tickets for what promises to be an excellent concert are free for children and £10 for adults. Tickets can be purchased from Siop Ladds A Fferyllydd in Clunderwen or from members of the choir. Proceeds from the concert will be donated to Prostate Cymru, the leading prostate health charity in Wales supporting men with benign prostate disease and prostate cancer.
