Mezzo–soprano Sioned Terry spent the formative years of her singing career experiencing success on the National and International platforms of the Eisteddfod in Wales, winning numerous competitions and has since performed alongside internationally renowned instrumentalists and soloists, such as harpist, Catrin Finch, singers, Wynne Evans, Rhys Meirion, classical crossover artist, ‘Rhydian’ and West End star, Luke McCall, amongst others. Sioned has also shared the stage with some of Wales’ most dynamic and well-known male voice choirs in numerous festivals and concerts throughout the country, including Bridgend, Trelawnyd and the South Wales MVCs to name but a few.
Sioned’s performances have seen her take to the stage at prestigious events ranging from intimate classical music festivals to open air galas, televised concerts, live broadcasts from sporting events (both nationally and internationally), including a performance at The Swalec Stadium in Cardiff for Team GB as they prepared to head out to the Commonwealth Games. Having entertained audiences ranging from Olympic heroes to politicians and royalty in the past, Sioned is also a popular choice for many corporate and award ceremonies, which have included the prestigious ‘Wales Care Awards’ and the ‘Olympic Hall of Fame’ ceremony for Wales Athletics. Sioned is also a familiar face at many a starting line, having sung the Welsh National Anthem at the Cardiff Half Marathon a few times, at the 40th Snowdon Race and at the opening ceremony for the Ultra Running commonwealth Games championship.
Sioned is also a familiar face on Wales’s S4C, having recorded performances for the popular ‘Noson Lawen’ prgrammes, Dechrau Canu Dechrau Canmol, Sioe Tudur Owen, Gwefreiddiol and the popular Welsh magazine programme, Heno. Sioned is also called upon as an adjudicator and is often seen as an unofficial judge on the National Eisteddfod’s broadcasts.
In 2015 Sioned toured the UK with contemporary dance company, ‘Sweetshop Revolution’, performing the songs of Welsh composer, Morfydd Owen, in theatres across the country to rave reviews and also sang some of her songs in Paris for the Welsh society there during St. David’s week, 2016.
Most recently Sioned’s ability as a composer came to light with the publication of her first collection of songs for voice and piano, ‘The Angels’ Praise’, published by Curiad Music and in July 2016 Sioned was commissioned to write a choral piece for SATB voices, to be performed at the international music festival in St. Asaph, sung by the ‘Vale of Clwyd Singers.’
Although classically trained, Sioned is a very versatile performer and her repertoire and style of performance has captured the attention of listeners across the age ranges, with songs spanning genres from opera to popular songs from stage & screen, lieder, oratorio and Welsh classics.
Sioned is currently working on an exciting new recording project, due for release in time for Christmas 2016 as well as continuing with performances and her composition work.
