Cwmdare Voices have just
returned from a week-end visit to Wolfenbüttel in the northern part of Germany, an area which was originally twinned with the former Rhondda B.C.in July 1992.
This was the choir’s first overseas visit and they were welcomed very warmly by the Musikschule Choir of Wolfenbuttel. Cwmdare Voices gave a concert in the St Trinitatis Church and in addition to singing some Welsh items ,they joined the Musikschule Choir and sang several items together.
On Sunday morning the Choir sang several hymns at the Church service in St Trinitatis. The whole week-end was an outstanding success, the Musikschule Choir arranging some planned visits to places of local interest, picnics and a late evening ” get together”.
During their free time the choir members enjoyed the facilities of local hostelries and gave several impromptu renderings of Welsh and English songs , much to the enjoyment of the local inhabitants.
