Sinfonia Cymru on Tour with Sir Bryn Terfel This Autumn!

Published Thursday 11 August 2022

We are extremely excited to share the news that we’ve been invited to join Welsh music legend Sir Bryn Terfel on part of his UK tour this October!

As Sinfonia Cymru’s Chief Executive, Peter Bellingham explains, this isn’t our first performance with Sir Bryn Terfel;

“We’re delighted to have been asked to perform with Bryn again. There is a strong history of Sinfonia Cymru and Bryn working together, across many years, including performing at his 50th birthday concert at the Royal Albert Hall a few years ago and, more recently at the 2019 Abu Dhabi Festival, for a concert performance of Tosca. I know the orchestra will be looking forward to renewing acquaintances again with this tour.”

Sinfonia Cymru’s talented musicians will be performing with the Welsh bass-baritone Sir Bryn Terfel at four of his nine venues during the tour: Llandudno, Birmingham, Manchester & Cardiff.

During the ‘Songs and Arias’ tour, the audience can expect a selection of Sir Bryn Terfel’s favourite arias from his various roles in opera and some famous tunes from musical theatre and the music hall. The playlist includes a variety of music from Mozart to Wagner to some sublime music from Wales.

Sir Bryn Terfel said:

“I’m delighted to be hitting the road singing my favourite ‘Songs and Arias’ this October. As well as performing in recital with my wife Hannah and friend, accompanist Annabel Thwaite, for some performances I am delighted to be bringing conductor Gareth Jones and Sinfonia Cymru with me on the journey. I can’t wait to present this programme to audiences across the country.”

The tour has been organised by Neil O’Brien Entertainment. Sinfonia Cymru will be performing at the four venues below and tickets are on sale now at all four venues.
