Many of the county’s young musicians have been busy competing in the adran, aelwyd and sir eisteddfodau in recent weeks. Congratulations to all those who participated and very best wishes to the winners who will be competing in Cardiff in May.

Solo successes include Capel Garmon’s young violinists, a Glan Morfa flautist a Betws yn Rhos flautist and guitarists from Dyffryn Conwy, Eglwysbach, Capel Garmon, Tudno, & Pentrefoelas.

The Dyffryn Conwy String Group and Guitar Ensemble are off to Cardiff while in the year 6 and under competitions the Pentrefoelas, Capel Garmon & Dolgarrog guitar ensembles all won in their regions. Bod Alaw won through in the instrumental ensemble, a violin trio from Glan Morfa came second and the guitar group from Llanddulas, who have never entered before, came a very creditable third.
