Choir

Founded in 1990 by the celebrated conductor, Jean Stanley Jones MBE, Cantorion Sirenian Singers are a choir of some 50 voices based in North East Wales.

Achieving international recognition on the competitive and concert platforms, they are recognised for their unique sound, excellent technique and breadth of repertoire, achieving particular recognition for their promotion of Contemporary Welsh music.

The choir’s reputation has been founded on its considerable success at British and International Festivals.  First prizes were achieved at Budapest, Cork, Riva del Garda, Elgar Festival, Worcester, Choir of Choirs Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Freckleton and Peterborough. In 2011 they swept the board at Bangor International Choral Festival (Northern Ireland), winning four first prizes and the prestigious Choir of Choirs award. At home they have secured numerous prizes at the National Eisteddfod of Wales, Aberteifi Festival, and twice won the mixed competition at Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod before becoming the first Welsh choir to win the coveted Choir of the World Trophy in 1998.

The Sirenians have given concerts at leading venues including the Dom Cathedral in Berlin, the Thomaskirche in Leipzig (where J S Bach was Kapellmeister), Symphony Hall Birmingham and St. David’s Hall, Cardiff; appearing with leading artists such as Lesley Garrett, Bryn Terfel, Rebecca Evans, Dennis O’Neill, Catrin Finch and Philip Madoc.
They were the choir selected to represent Wales in Barcelona during the ‘Wales in Catalonia’ Celebrations and in 2009 were chosen by the Ballet Rambert as their guest choir in performances at Theatr Clwyd of Howard Goodall’s innovative choral ballet ‘Eternal Light –a Requiem', composed in 2008.

Cantorion Sirenian Singers regularly appear on radio and television and have released three CDs – ‘Rachmaninov to Rutter’, ‘Sirenians’ and ‘Christus Natus’.
