Seren Winds is a Cardiff - based wind quintet, formed in January 2015 and comprised of Masters graduates from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. Katie, Eric, Michael, Bartosz and Laura regularly perform together in Cardiff and around Wales, in various well-known venues, music clubs and recital series. 

In 2015 they were announced as the winners of the June Emerson Launchpad Prize at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. 

After the success of the quintet’s first tour to Quiberon, France, in Summer 2015 to introduce Pascal Gallois’ new music festival, Les Musicales de Quiberon, they were invited back and returned for ten days in the summer of 2016.

They recorded their debut album in the Dora Stoutzker Hall at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama in July 2016, featuring music by Farkas, Taffanel, Poulenc and Damase.

TRUMPET SENSATION Sinfonia Cymru with Lucienne Renaudin Vary

Tickets - £19.50, concessions - £17.50, under 30s - £13.25, children and students - £4

Thursday 3 February at 7.30pm

Still only 22 Lucienne Ranaudin Vary already has an incredible career as a classical and jazz trumpeter. Described, quite rightly, as a 'trumpet sensation' she has won awards for her playing from a very early age. Conductors and other artists marvel at her talents and her exceptional musicality. The programme combines classical repertoire with jazz influenced music from the streets of France and New York. In the first half you will hear the small ensemble version of Wagner's Siegfried Idyll and the sensational Hummel’s Trumpet Concerto. The orchestra opens the second half with Ravel's Le Tombeau de Couperin before we switch moods with pieces taken from her album with the BBC Concert Orchestra, Mademoiselle in New York, arranged by Bill Elliot.

'Don't miss this' is an overused cliché. But really, don't miss this - these performances are going to be very special. 

Programme:

Wagner Siegfried Idyl

Hummel Trumpet Concerto in E flat.

Ravel Le Tombeaude Couperin

Ravel Pavane pourune infante défunte

Milhaud Le Boeufsur le toit
