Welsh National Anthem (Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau)             86th Annual National Gymanfa Ganu

Benediction                                                                  Eve Goodwyn

 The Welsh Society of Central Ohio has provided a virtual Cymanfa Ganu thanks to a committee made up of board members: Cindy Williamson, Bob Penry, and Eve Goodwyn.

 The program is shorter than our original Cymanfa at two ‘congregational’ song sets, with recordings used by permission from the Welsh North American Association.  It incorporates recordings from guest musicians, including long-time organist, James Hildreth, and his flutist wife, Valorie Adams-Hildreth. We have a memorials section for those who passed in the last year, as well as our normal section where people can list whom they’d like to honor. There are pictures of past WSCO events, and nearly all of the parts a normal Cymanfa would have. We think you’ll be pleased with the result. 

 Following is the outline of the program to be run on YouTube (type in WSCO 2020 Virtual Cymanfa Ganu)
