RHYS WATKINS TO PERFORM THE TCHAIKOVSKY VIOLIN CONCERTO
LLANGADOG, ST CADOGS PARISH CHURCH
Saturday, March 17th at 7.30 p.m

This popular, gifted and nationally celebrated violinist returns once more to St. Cadog’s Parish Church, Llangadog on Saturday, March 17th at 7.30 p.m. to perform Tchaikovsky’s great masterpiece with Symphonica Tywi, under the direction of Michael Cottam.

Following a year of sell-out concerts throughout South Wales, the orchestra also returns to Llangadog in this thrilling concert of melody and passion, which includes Wagner’s majestic Overture to “The Mastersingers of Nuremburg” and the lyrical 1st Symphony by Kalinnikov.

The orchestra is led by Rhys, whose career as first violinist in the London Symphony Orchestra and founder member of The Nidum Ensemble, involves a very hectic schedule of travelling and performances all over the world. His roots are in the Towy valley though, where his grandfather, Harry Brace was a fondly remembered vicar of Llanwrda and where Rhys’s mother, Barbara grew up. His father is Stuart Watkins, a former Welsh rugby international and British Lions player and one of the greatest wingers that the country has known.

This is truly a concert, not to be missed and the tickets are very good value at £12, with concessions at £10. Children under 14 are, as always with Symphonica Tywi concerts, free of charge.

Tickets can be reserved by calling or texting the Ticketline on 01646 636564 or 07876 727906 or by mailing mikecottam@hotmail.com . They are also available from The Mace Stores in Llangadog. As demand is likely to be very heavy, it is advisable to book early to avoid disappointment.
