Music scholar Tegid gains further competition success

A talented vocalist at Rydal Penrhos has added to his huge list of accolades with double competition success.

Tegid Goodman-Jones, a Year 10 pupil at the school, came away with two victories from different events over the Easter break, which further enhances his reputation as one of the most prominent young voices anywhere in the country.

The music scholar recently competed at the high profile Bowdon Festival, and he emerged from the event with victories in both the Unaccompanied Folk Song and Musical Theatre song categories.

This was swiftly followed by another virtuoso display at the Talybont Eisteddfod, which was adjudicated by Huw Llywelyn and Tegid managed to scoop the Main Solo prize thanks to his outstanding efforts.

Tegid, said: “The Bowdon Festival was a different experience than I'm usually used to, but it was still a worthwhile experience and I was lucky enough to gain two first places

“Everyone was extremely welcoming at the Talybont Eisteddfod and thanks to Sioned Williams for accompanying perfectly.”

This is the latest in a long line of triumphs for the 15-year-old, who has achieved a plethora of regional and competition success in what has been a glittering young career to date.

Director of Music Pete Williams, added: “Tegid continues to show a great passion and dedication to improving ass aspects of his vocal talent, and it is great to see this being rewarded with a consistent stream of competition wins.

“He is a real pleasure to work with and takes everything on board in order to better himself, which is sure to bring with it even greater results in the future.”
