LLAWN06 at Holy Trinity, September 2018

editor : November 6, 2018 11:53 am : TrinityPrevious

The annual arts weekend in Llandudno (LLAWN) included an installation of bell horns in Holy Trinity’s grounds:  “Ring Out” by award winning sound artist Ray Lee. It was very musical and spectacular with eight giant metal towers, each 5 metres tall.  Loud bell horns were suspended from these and they swung back and forth making an incredible sound, similar to a peal of bells, and a new score, “Aphelion”, was performed and was rung from our church bell tower.  At least one of our bell ringers had a go at ringing one of the bell horns.

Organ recitals success, August 2018

editor : November 5, 2018 6:43 pm : TrinityPrevious

The Summer Lunch-time Organ Concerts were a great success again this year with larger audiences than ever – 100+ at each concert – made up, for the most part, of people who wouldn’t normally come to Holy Trinity, so it was good to welcome them all. As always, we had some very fine playing which showed off the refurbished organ to great effect and our guest recitalists are always thrilled to be playing to such large audiences – we now have larger organ recital audiences than any of our local Cathedrals – Bangor, St Asaph and Chester.

This year the series took on an international flavour when we welcomed Alessandro Bianchi from Italy who was charming and played to our largest audience of over 130.

Admission to the Concerts was free but the enthusiastic audiences donated generously and, after expenses, this year’s four concerts added £1,289 to the Organ Maintenance Fund.

Congratulations to Holy Trinity and St. Tudno’s for wining awards for the churchyards.

Holy Trinity has been awarded Gold* in the churches category in the Llandudno in Bloom competition. Members of the congregation and 1st Llandudno Guides have adopted troughs or planters around the church and worked hard to keep them watered and full of colour through the long, dry period.

Organ recital, 10 July

editor : July 21, 2018 10:37 am : Latest, TrinityPrevious

The Church was full to capacity (someone counted 174) for our Grand Re-opening Lunch-time Organ Concert on Tuesday, 10 July when international concert organist, Paul Carr, gave the organ a thorough work-out with a programme ranging from virtuoso French organ showpieces, grand Bach, a British Trumpet Voluntary, music for a Clock Organ by Haydn, a Jazz inspired Chorale from Germany and the serene “The peace may be exchanged” by American composer Dan Locklair. I am pleased to report that the organ coped admirably with the wonderful variety of this music and Paul said how thrilled he was to be playing the organ again, now that everything is working (last time he came, his practice had to be interrupted whilst the organ builder patched up a serious problem). Paul responded to the rapturous applause at the end with a very quirky encore, the “Serenade” by Derek Bourgeois which brought a smile to everyone’s face. A very happy and successful occasion including a record breaking collection for one of our recitals of £555.

We now look forward to our annual Summer Lunch-time Organ Concerts on the four Tuesdays in August at 1.00 p.m. which this year take on an international flavour as we have Concert Organist Alessandro Bianchi from Italy playing for the third recital on 21 August.
