Y côr

Ers ei sefydlu yn 1995, mae Côr ABC wedi datblygu o fod yn gôr ieuenctid i fod yn gôr cymysg cymunedol uchelgeisiol sy’n cefnogi bywyd cerddorol Aberystwyth a’r fro. Mae hefyd wedi cael cryn lwyddiant mewn cystadlaethau lleol a chenedlaethol, gan gyrraedd rownd gyn-derfynol cystadleuaeth Côr Cymru yn 2007, 2011 a 2017.

Mae’r côr wedi comisiynu a pherfformio darnau newydd, gan gynnwys ‘Aberystwyth’ gan Hector MacDonald a ‘Gosber’ gan Andrew Cusworth. Gallwch glywed recordiad o berfformiad cyntaf ‘Gosber’ ar waelod y dudalen, a gallwch hefyd glywed y côr yn canu ar ffilm lwyddiannus Gideon Koppel, ‘Sleep Furiously’.
