'Bangor Music Festival is a charitable organisation dedicated to presenting contemporary music performed by artists of the highest calibre and has a strong commitment to enrich and educate through workshops and concerts.' Held Mid February.

 

'The current research and teaching of ICSMuS are Christian in emphasis; but the centre’s scope allows for studies of music in other world religions. Similarly, the current emphasis is on Western music, liturgies and rituals; but it is intended to enlarge this and to engage with scholars and students from anthropology and sociology as well as theology and the arts.'

The men – now called lay clerks – come from many walks of life and their number is augmented in term time by students from the University ... The organ is the largest pipe organ in Wales and potentially one of the finest in the British Isles. It provides North Wales with an irreplaceable community asset. It is a splendid four-manual instrument and the majority of its 4,210 pipes were supplied in 1873 by one of the most famous organ building firms of the day, William Hill, with subsequent additions by the same company in 1897. It last received major attention in 1954 when it was re-built by John Compton ...’
