IT’S BACK – after an incredibly challenging 12 months, the Gŵyl Beaumaris Festival is coming home to the picturesque town of Beaumaris on Anglesey to bring a diverse programme of live events that includes orchestral concerts, recitals, choral works, cabaret, an art exhibition and talks.
Taking place between the 19th and 21st of November 2021 performances include the Welsh Chamber Orchestra under the baton of Anthony Hose who will be performing works by Hayn, Mozart, Saint-Saens and Nathan James Dearden, whilst Welsh harpist Mared Emlyn joins international baritone Jeremy Huw Williams to give a song recital of traditional Welsh Folksongs. The Mavron String Quartet return to the Festival and will be performing works by Haydn, Gershwin and Mendelssohn and this year’s cabaret slot features the celebrated guitarist and humourist Adrian Legg. Cantorion Menai will be appearing at the Festival for the first time whilst Canolfan Gerdd William Mathias will once again be showcasing the talents of some of their most talented young students. This year’s Festival artist features the works of Shan Eccles and there is a Festival Service at St Mary’s Church with the Monteverdi Singers performing Palestrina’s Missa Brevis. This year’s Festival Lunch is at the Bulkeley Hotel.
Established 35 years ago by Anthony Hose, the Festival is run by volunteers and is one of the longest-running music festivals in North Wales. With a continued reputation for excellence the Festival has been supported by the Arts Council of Wales since its inception in 1986. Due to Covid, a digital edition of the Gŵyl Beaumaris Festival took place in December 2020 but is now delighted to be able to return to its home at the Canolfan Beaumaris to bring live performances and to celebrate and support the Arts in general.
The Festival’s key mission is to promote live national and international performances by world class musicians alongside UK and local emerging talent and this year’s programme is proud to be able to continue in this vein with a programme that celebrates ‘the old’ and welcomes the new.
