Llangollen International Eisteddfod 2010
The choir were thrilled to compete on the main Pavillion stage at Llangollen International Eisteddfod in July 2010 in the Junior Children's Category. They were against many of the most successful and established children's choirs of the UK & overseas and gained 3rd place!!!! only 3 points between 1st and 3rd place too so well done everyone.
The choir gave a fantastic performance at Llangollen in 2009 but had to compete in the senior category and received excellent feedback and praise from the adjudicators.
In July 2008 - The World Choir Games in Austria where the Nidus Choir represented Wales and were awarded a Silver VII Diploma! To receive this at our first ever entry in a catogory comprising over 60 of the most successful and well established choirs from all over the world was a real achievment, Well Done!
In 2010 The Nidus Children's Choir has recently recorded a track with Bryn Terfel & the Orchestra of Welsh National Opera on new Christmas CD.
The choir has recorded with Bryn Terfel (Christmas CD) Vangelis (CD Hope due for release this year) and Catrin Finch/Bryn Terfel (CD due for release June/July 2013).
