Musical Links

A number of strong and long-established links exist between musical groups based in Rhondda Cynon Taf and groups from our twin towns in Germany & France. The groups include choirs, brass bands, orchestras, wind orchestras plus youth and smaller ensembles.

Numerous exchanges have taken place in recent years, resulting in some truly memorable tours and performances, together with long lasting friendships and repeat exchanges.

Forthcoming exchanges include:
