The Welsh Society of Central Ohio plans to have our annual Cymanfa Ganu October, 17th 2021 at Central College Presbyterian Church. We are excited Kevin Fancher has been engaged to be our conductor. Kevin is currently the Director of Music at Horizon Science Academy Middle School in Columbus, Ohio, and holds a degree in Music Education from The College of Wooster. He has been a music director and teacher for 14 years and has taught throughout Ohio as well as New York City. Kevin’s skills as a composer, arranger, and performer (both vocalist and instrumentalist) are sought after by many bands, singers, and songwriters.
Kevin’s connection to his Welsh heritage is strong. He has been a lifelong attendee at the Gymanfa Ganu in Venedocia, OH. In addition to participating as a singer in the Gymanfas, he has also performed special music at the Venedocia Gymanfa Ganu many times. He took pride in singing three Welsh folk songs (in Welsh) for his Senior Recital. (While not a Welsh speaker, he was told his pronunciation was spot-on!) He has also been the high tenor in a family quartet, including his two brothers and father, accompanied by his mother at the piano (who has also previously served as the director at the Venedocia Gymanfa). This year has Kevin taking on the reins as conductor of the 2021 Venedocia Gymanfa. Kevin had the pleasure of singing in Gymanfas conducted by Trefor Williams and Geraint Wilkes.
