Tickets for Sir Bryn Terfel’s long-awaited first performance in the theatre named after him at the Pontio Arts Centre, Bangor are to go on sale.

The world-famous bass-baritone will be performing with harpist Hannah Stone and past students from Canolfan Gerdd William Mathias, finalists in the Urdd Bryn Terfel Scholarship, as part of the launch the Wales International Harp Festival IV (April 1-7 2018) on the day that Festival President, Dr Osian Ellis CBE, celebrates his 90th birthday Thursday, February 8, 2018 at 7.30pm.

Sir Bryn and Hannah Stone will give the first performance of Osian Ellis’ Cycle of Welsh Folk Songs. Glain Dafydd (Harp) Gwyn Owen (Trumpet, Gwen Elin, (Soprano) and Jâms Coleman (Piano) will be the supporting artists.

Tickets go on sale at 10am on Tuesday, October 10, online, over the phone and in person from Pontio Box Office.

The Pant Glas-born singer had been due to take part in a gala concert marking the opening of the £50m arts and innovation centre three years ago. Tickets quickly sold out for the concert but delays in completing the building meant the event was cancelled.

Harp Festival director Elinor Bennett said: “I cannot imagine a more exciting way of launching the fourth Wales International Harp Festival than by welcoming Sir Bryn Terfel, Hannah Stone and four young emerging Welsh artists to perform at Theatr Bryn Terfel.

“There is a strong element of serendipity attached to the occasion as this is the exact day that the Festival President, the incomparable Osian Ellis CBE, will be 90! Osian Ellis dedicated his “Cycle of Welsh Folk Songs” to Bryn and Hannah, and this will be the highlight of a prestigious and unique occasion.

“I hope that the concert will inspire new audiences for the harp and encourage many people to come to the Festival which will be held in Galeri, Caernarfon.”
Sir Bryn Terfel added: “How exciting, I am so pleased we have finally found a date for this incredible concert at Pontio.

“I am very much looking forward to singing in the theatre for the very first time, in the concert to celebrate harpist Osian Ellis, one of Wales’s most iconic musicians.”

Mario Kreft, proprietor of Pendine Park, sponsors of the event said: “We are delighted to be sponsoring this wonderful concert, particularly as music and the arts generally are an important part of our enrichment programme to enrich lives across the generations for our residents and staff at Bryn Seiont Newydd in Caernarfon and our care homes in Wrexham.
“I am sure it is going to be a magical evening, which will provide the perfect platform to launch the Wales International Harp Festival. We are looking forward to working with the organisers of the festival.”


Tickets for the concert cost £40 each from the Pontio Box Office (01248 382828) and online. Individuals will be able to purchase a maximum of four tickets per person.

We share your anxious thoughts Bjorg, let us hope and pray that this enforced period of rest and recuperation does the trick. At least it's a lovely family time for them to be together and his fans will be sending positive loving wishes for a full and speedy recovery. Xx
