Chloe is MOCSA Young Welsh Singer of the Year.

St Mary's Church in Swansea was a new venue for the 2017 MOCSA Concert and its own unique atmosphere added to another memorable occasion.

Four female finalists had fought off stiff competition in the preliminary heats to perform on the evening in front of a distinguised panel of Adjudicators.

Julian Smith - Former Music Advisor to BBC Cardiff Singer of the World and a former Head of Music at Welsh National Opera

Huw Tregelles Williams - Former Head of BBC Wales Music and a former Director of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.

Eirian James - A Mezzzo-Soprano who has performed at Opera Houses, Concert Halls and on radio and television world wide.

The four Finalists (pictured l-r) were:








Charlotte Trepess  A Soprano from Eastbourne, whose mother is from Bridgend. She had recently completed post graduate studies at the Royal Northern College of Music.

Chloe Angharad Morgan  A Soprano from London, whose father hails from Aberbargoed. She had recently completed her masters at The Wales International Academy of Voice.

Joanna Harries  A Mezzo-soprano who was born in New Zealand, but grew up in Wales. She is currently studying at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

Elen Lloyd Roberts  A soprano from Llithfaen, Pwllheli currently studying at the Royal Academy of Music.

All four finalists were accompanied by Jeffrey Howard.

Each of the Finalists performed a varied programme and with the Choir in good voice throughout the evening the audience were quick to show its appreciation and were clearly enjoying the whole occasion.

In announcing the winner the Adjudicators commented on the high standard of the Final and congratulated all the performers on their individual contribution to a special evening.

There could only be one winner however and Chloe Angharad Morgan (pictured with the Lord Mayor of Swansea, Councillor Phil Downing, who presented the awards) was announced as the 2017 MOCSA Young Welsh Singer of theYear.
