EPS Events (Event and Production Services UK Ltd) were delighted to supply the PA for the Tenovus Cancer Care first ever Lovelight Christmas concert at St Davids Cathedral on 2nd December 2016.
Performances by Welsh harpist Catrin Finch, Welsh soprano Gwawr Edwards and the Haverfordwest Male Voice Choir entertained the large audience.
Catrin Finch started learning to play the harp at the age of 6 and passed her Grade 8 at the age of 9. At the age of 10 she joined the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain and was the youngest member to play at The Proms. Catrin was the official harpist to the Prince of Wales from 2000 to 2004 and is a visiting professor at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and also the Royal Academy of Music.
Born in Aberystwyth Gwawr Edwards is a very talented soprano who is in demand throughout the world. She studied music at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. She won the Solo Competition at Llangollen International Eisteddfod and has toured with Glyndebourne Opera, Only Men Aloud and Bryn Terfel. Gwawr has also made many TV and radio appearances.
Haverfordwest Male Voice Choir has been in existence for since 1896 (over 110 years) and is one of the oldest choirs in Wales. With around 55 members they are in constant demand and perform about 20 concerts per year.
The concert was organised by Emily Wells, West Wales Community Fundraiser who said “Christmas can be a very difficult time for everyone affected by cancer, our Lovelight concerts can help to bring people together to remember, reflect and most of all, celebrate”. Funds from the evenings concert will help Tenovus continue their work in communities across Wales.
EPS used their EV (Electro-Voice) professional high performance ZX 12 loudspeakers strategically placed around the cathedral to provide a loud and clear sound for the audience to hear the music. We used our professional Sennheiser radio mics for the harpist and the soprano to amplify their sound and voices.
