Denbighshire Youth County Choir
The choir was established in 2009 and is based in the Rhyl area of North Wales. It has over sixty members drawn from at least ten schools from all over the county of Denbighshire.
The choir is a bilingual choir and in the last few years have had some wonderful opportunities, including performing in the chorus of a community opera , Britten's Noye's Fludde in front of 4,000 people at the Llangollen International Eisteddfod. The choir is arranged and funded by Denbighshire County Council in partnership with the William Mathias Schools Music Service.
The choir opens their performance with well known Welsh song Ysbryd y Nos (Spirit of the Night), an atmospheric anthem made famous by the Welsh 1970s pop act, Edward H Dafis. Their second piece is the beautiful Welsh song Dangos y Ffordd (Show the Way) by Robat Arwyn, a song asking for hope, love and strength.
