THE Cor Godre’r Aran Choir, 2008 Llangollen International Eisteddfod winners, will perform a St David’s Day concert at St Giles Parish Church, Wrexham.
The choir will be joined by Welsh tenor, Aled Wyn Davies and Rhianwen Pugh, joint principal harpist of the National Youth Orchestra of Wales for the event on Thursday, February 26.
Aled Wyn Davies also lent his voice to help boost funds for the hospice at the recent Christmas concert in Chester Cathedral.
Eirian Owen, musical director, from Dolgellau, has her own reasons for supporting the hospice.
Her husband, Elfyn Owen, who sang with the choir, died in the hospice almost two years to the day the concert will be held.
She said: “The hospice provided my husband with excellent care in the last days of his life and the support they gave to me and my family was very special, the choir is only too happy to help raise funds for the hospice in this way.”
Nightingale House provides specialist palliative care services, free of charge, to patients and their families across a wide area.Š
It will cost £2.5m to maintain its current level of service at the hospice, £7,000 per day.
