It is a pleasure to present Côr Ysgol Y Strade’s new CD, Seren Ein Bore. Since releasing their previous album, the choir has continued to flourish. Côr y Strade is a very busy and active choir made up of 50 pupils aged between 11 and 18 years old. In 2009, the choir reached the semifinal round of S4C’s ‘Côr Cymru’ competition. This success was followed two years later in 2011 when they won the second prize in the Senior Children’s Choir competition at the Llangollen International Eisteddfod. In February 2014, the choir secured ‘Senior Runner-up’ position in the BBC School Choir of the Year competition and in April 2013 they won the second prize in the Pan Celtic Choral competition, Ireland. They won the second prize in the Royal Northern College of Music MACC Competition in 2015, and were awarded first prize in the ‘Lions Club Senior School Choir of the Year Competition’ both in 2015 and 2016. The choir has appeared on a number of Welsh language television programmes including Noson Lawen and Dechrau Canu, Dechrau Canmol and regularly support various local events, winning first prize at the Hendy Eisteddfod in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018. Also this year, the choir reached the final in the BBC’s new competition, ‘Songs of Praise Young Choir of the Year’. The choir enjoy travelling and spending time together, performing in St Michaels et Gudula’s Cathedral, Brussels, and recently returned from a successful tour of the Netherlands where they held a special concert in Edam Catholic Church, Amsterdam. The choir is very active in the community, raising funds for various local charities. In October 2013, they presented a cheque for £1750 to the Peony Breast Care Unit at the Prince Philip Hospital, Llanelli. Both of their previous CDs, Cofio Ni and Mae’r Môr yn Faith, have been great successes, and I’m sure that you’ll enjoy this new album also. The choir is led by the school’s Head of Music, Mr Christopher Davies who is responsible for arranging many of the songs that make up their repertoire.
