On June 10, Gregynog’s resident orchestra Sinfonia Cymru return for a week of rehearsals with two free public performances.

Lydia Bassett, Gregynog’s business development director, said:

“We are so excited to be one of the organisations selected for support through the Levelling Up budgets. We will be able to share our programme very soon as we are making exciting plans with our partner organisations.

“The Davies Sisters’ vision for Gregynog was as a centre for art and music for all the people of Wales. Great composers like Elgar, Vaughan Williams and Holst performed here and the Music Room was once host to one of the greatest collections of Impressionist art, including Monet’s Water Lilies.

“We want to share the history and culture of Gregynog as widely as we can so we are working on an exciting new programme of affordable events which will offer something for everyone to enjoy.”
