Cantata Memoria commemorates the Aberfan tragedy of 21 October 1966. It was on this day that 116 children and 28 adults perished when a coal spoil tip enveloped the school and some houses in South Wales.
The choir will combine with a professional orchestra, young voices and two soloists. We are delighted to announce that our soprano soloist is a young local former choir member, Rosemary Cocklin, who is returning for her first solo performance with us. The baritone soloist is long time favourite Manfred Pohlenz.
The work is a deeply moving piece; sensitively and beautifully written.
