Since 2010 the festival has showcased more than twenty exceptional young Welsh artists who have gone on to forge great careers. This year we are certainly continuing in this tradition as we look forward to welcoming two highly acclaimed Welsh singers.
Wrexham born Angharad Lyddon will represent Wales this year in the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World Competition, following her success at the 2018 Welsh Singer Showcase at Cardiff’s St David’s Hall with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, conducted by Gareth Jones. A student at the Royal Academy and a Samling Artist, Angharad appears regularly with English National Opera.
With his soaring top notes and easy charm, Pembrokeshire born tenor, Trystan Llŷr Griffiths, is in great demand as a concert Artist. He is also quickly making his mark on the international opera stage, having worked with Opéra National de Lorraine, Zürich Opera, Scottish Opera, Opera North and Welsh National Opera.
