As well as the credit of winning the Scholarship associated with the world-famous baritone, the winner will also receive a £ 4,000 cash prize to develop their talent for the future. This year's award is sponsored by Trinity Saint David University. The goal of the award established in 1999 is to nurture the talent of some of Wales' best young performers and the Scholarship is much more than just a stage competition.


Since being selected in June, the six competitors have received advice and masterclasses from prominent performers including the opera singers Elin Manahan Thomas and Rhian Lois; the actor and theatrical director Aled Pedrick; Lauren Phillips, professional dancer and actress; the film trainer and producer of Meinir Siencyn television shows; and the equipment tutor struck Owen Gunnell.

Although Bryn Terfel can not attend the evening, he sent a message of support and word of advice to the candidates,

"I'm very pleased to see this Scholarship going from strength to strength, and seeing a high standard of talent performing again this year. Make sure you as competitors listen to expert advice but keep a personal and unique stamp on performance, and you're comfortable on the performance stage.

Remember to try to keep control of the nerves, turning them into an advantage rather than a disadvantage. And more importantly, remember to enjoy performing and giving your best. Go for it, here's your chance to shine! "

Criticizing, and having the difficult task of choosing a winner on the night, will be Delyth Mai, Eirlys Britten, Rakhi Sing, Sioned Terry and Cath Ayres.

Tickets for the Concert at the Sony Theater, Bridgend College are available for £ 10 from the Urdd website or by calling 0845 257 1639. The concert will be broadcast live on S4C on Saturday 14th October.
