Standing ovations, sell-out concerts and stellar workshops characterised the eighth Narberth A Capella Voice Festival, which took place last weekend.

The festival continues to go from strength to strength and this year included a strong community element; opening on Thursday night with Cor Pawb an intergenerational choir drawing its 150 members from local choirs and schools.

This year’s headliners The Sons of Pitches, packed out the Queen’s Hall on Saturday night, supported by Ffynon and Cor Pawb Bach.

The Naked Choir winners won over the audience with their humour, camaraderie and consummate talent. They followed this with an energetic uplifting and packed out Sunday workshop.

Another sell out concert was the South African Zulu Male Choir, supported by Cor y Gors and Camilo Menjura, who also gave a vibrant Saturday workshop.

Sunday afternoon concert goers were treated to the soaring harmonies and vocal virtuosity of Cordydd in the stunning setting of St Andrews Church.

“We are absolutely thrilled at the success of this year's festival,” said Span Arts manager, Gwendoline Watson, who thanked all the volunteers and businesses involved.

“Many people are saying it's our best one yet, and certainly it's the biggest and best it’s ever been.

“We can only hope it will continue to grow and cement its place as the a cappella festival for Wales.”
