Music and art work at the Senedd

Last month, I was delighted to welcome to the Senedd a school choir from Llangewydd Junior School and a number of students from Bridgend College who were exhibiting their work at The Oriel at the Senedd.

The school choir consisted of around 40 pupils aged 7 -11 years of age. They were very enthusiastic and had clearly worked hard to learn a repertoire of contemporary English and Welsh songs. There was something for everyone including a Take That song, songs from Matilda The Musical, Calon Lân lyrics sang to the music of Let It Be by The Beatles and songs about Wales. The choir was excellent and attracted quite a crowd to listen to them perform.

It was also a great pleasure to welcome students from Bridgend College to the Senedd. The theme of their work was Landscape, Myths and Legends and it was great to see their work on display and to chat to some of the students about their inspiration for their pieces of work. There was art work on display with some fantastic dragons in various guises and a range of photos showing a number of local scenes.
