Bryn Terfel to sing for Shelter Cymru

Baritone opera singer Bryn Terfel, soprano Rebecca Evans and the singer/songwriter Cerys Matthews will all be performing at The Shelter Cymru Presidents Concert on 17 November.

The concert is in celebration of the Shelter Cymru charity's 30th birthday, and will see Shelter's long-time supporters Terfel, Evans and Matthews appearing alongside a top secret guest for the musical extravaganza which takes place at St. David's Hall in Cardiff.

Bryn Terfel said: “For 30 years, Shelter Cymru has been working tirelessly to prevent homelessness in Wales and all three of us as President and Vice Presidents are very proud to be involved with a charity that has such a long history of helping some of the most vulnerable people in our society.

“The current economic situation means that Shelter Cymru is busier than ever and needs all the help and public support it can get to ensure that its services remain available to anyone with housing problems.

“The 30th birthday concert is a great way to mark such an important milestone, but amid the celebrations I ask people not to forget the thousands of families who would not have a home if it hadn’t been for the work Shelter Cymru does every day across Wales.”

The concert is sponsored by Grwp Gwalia and the artists will be supported by Sinfonia Cymru.
