Swansea International Festival

Morriston Music Festival 2017                           

Teaming up with the Abertawe Bro Morgannwg Health Board, Swansea International Festival is bringing a week long programme of live music to take place in the foyer of Morriston Hospital.  A wealth of talented musicians and singers will perform at 3pm each day from 1 to 16 October

The popular Salvation Army Band opened the Morriston Music Festival on 1st October with some traditional tunes and hymns for the audience to join in with.

Following on through the week will be Seren Winds, a prize-winning quintet from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama;  Jamie Smith playing Celtic ballads and Welsh folk tunes on his accordian/guitar; Llewellyn Ifan Jones showing how versatile an instrument the harp can be with his eclectic mix of musical styles from classical to jazz; Pegbox, a duo who play ‘funky folk’ on their violin and cello; Quartet 19, a highly talented young percussion ensemble; the international violinist, Chris Horner; Icaris Duo, an ensemble of flute and guitar who bring a freshness of style to audiences of all ages and Joy Cornock, who sings a mixture of traditional Welsh songs, operatic arias and songs from the musicals accompanied by the harp.

Bringing the week of music to an end one of the hospital’s anaesthetists takes on a very different role when he is joined by two friends to form Out of Nowhere and bring Gypsy Jazz to the Festival Finale

All of these events, bringing music, laughter and fun into the hospital for patients, visitors and staff, are free to anyone who wishes to attend and enjoy. They take place daily at 3pm in the Foyer.
