Builth Male Voice Choir and the Carmarthen Ukeleles entertained a Builth Wells audience at the sports centre recently.

The groups were performing in a lively St David’s Day concert, which was held on Saturday, March 2.

The choir performed several new songs including Andy Grammer’s “Don’t Give Up On Me” and “The Ground” by Ola Gjeilo as well as some well-known audience favourites such as “Bring Him Home” from Les Misérables and Ryan Davies’ “Pan Fo’r Nos Yn Hir”.

The choir was led by musical director Adrian Morgan and accompanist Ann Bufton.

During the concert Ann was presented with a much deserved High Sheriff Award in recognition of her long and dedicated public service. Ann has accompanied the choir for 40 unbroken years, and during this time, supported other choirs when called upon to do. She has also provided accompaniment to solo singers and taught children to play the piano. Powys High Sheriff Reg Cawthorne Esq attended the concert and was able to present the award to Ann personally.

David Power was the compère for the evening and kept the audience well entertained between songs.

The Carmarthen Ukeleles performed well-known tunes that had a Welsh connection with infectious energy and got the audience singing and clapping along.
