My Song My Story Newport Exhibition
Type of Event: Art Exhibition
The Forget-me-not Chorus is an inspirational charity using the power of song to bring joy to people with dementia and their families.
Each week, choirs in Cardiff North, South & Vale and Newport, and at two Cardiff care homes, meet to sing, rehearse and have fun. Now this groundbreaking charity is holding an exhibition of their work, as part Age Cymru’s Gwanwyn Festival.
Working with writer Patrick Jones, over 120 choristers have explored their special song and the story behind it. With powerful images accompanying emotive poetry, this exhibition celebrates the unique ability of song to enhance and enrich all our lives.
The exhibition also features a free lunchtime and early evening concerts with baritone Dyfed Wyn Evans.
Opening concert to launch the exhibition at 3:30pm Saturday 19 May
- Sat 19th May 2018 to Mon 21st May 2018
