Aberdare Boys’ Grammar School

The School Concert, Summer Term 1957

Old School

School Musical Production, May 1957
‘Mass in G’ (Schubert)

This was the sixteenth concert in the series. As usual, there were miscellaneous items and a main item, on this occasion it was Schubert’s ‘Mass in G’. The conductor was Mr. P.E. Phillips; Mr. T.R. James and Mr J. Gethin Evans provided the continuo. There were three soloists: Heather Harper (Soprano), Maldwyn Phillips (Tenor) and Eric Mortimore (Bass). Once again The Morgan Lloyd Orchestra was in attendance.

No mention of a concert for 1956 is seen on page 3 of the programme. This was the year of the National Eisteddfod at Aberdare; the school musical society contributed to the Tuesday evening concert instead, and possibly other events as well.
