St. David's Welsh events in Poultney area

Monday, March 9-12: C r y Mynydd Glas (Green Mountain College Choir) North Wales performance tour. The Green Mountain College Choir returns to Wales for its fourth concert tour since 1998. As the only college choir in the United States that maintains a Welsh and Welsh-American music repertoire, the choir reflects the rich Welsh heritage of the College's location in Vermont's Slate Valley. The 2010 concert tour will highlight works that were associated with the Welsh-American eisteddfod of the nineteenth century.

The choir's director, Dr. James P. Cassarino, has pursued extensive research in music at the University of Wales-Bangor where he has been making annual trips since 2005. Through his research he has become well-known as an authority on the hymn singing traditions of the Welsh-American community from the colonial period to the present. He has presented lectures in Wales and in many Welsh-American communities where he is also frequently invited to conduct cymanfa ganu festivals.
