Aberystwyth Arts Centre


Commissioned to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the Aberfan Disaster in 1966, Karl Jenkins’s deeply moving new work also encompasses other recent mass tragedies involving children. The university’s impressive large choir combines with young voices from local schools, baritone soloist Paul Carey Jones and its regular professional orchestra Sinfonia Cambrensis, to present one of the first performances in Wales since the BBC premiere in 2016. The impact then was sensational – and it will be here, too!

Aberfan - A Tragic Anniversary - Karl Jenkins
Cantata Memoria (For the Children)
Mendelssohn - As the Hart Pants

Sinfonia Cambrensis: Conductor – David Russell Hulme.
