Rhys Meirion

Quite simply one of the greatest Welsh voices of his generation

About

Welsh tenor Rhys Meirion has enjoyed international success in opera and recording and national success in broadcasting.



Concert highlights include a gala concert at the Royal Albert Hall with Bryn Terfel, his BBC Prom debut at the opening night of the BBC Proms (televised on BBC 2), Desert Island Discs Anniversary Concert at London’s Royal Festival Hall, a live BBC recording of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony conducted by Richard Hickox, Verdi’s Requiem at the Royal Albert Hall and Karl Jenkins’ 70 Birthday Concert at The Carnegie Hall New York.

The second series of”Deuawdau Rhys Meirion” (Rhys Meirion’s Duets) was shown on S4C in the Autumn of 2017. He also presents “Dewch am Dro” on BBC Radio Cymru.



“It is rare enough to find a true tenor voice, but even scarcer is the singer who can use that instrument to communicate directly from his heart.
Rhys Meirion came to ENO with those very special gifts, and has never lost his sincerity and emotional simplicity.”

Paul Daniel CBE

“I announce with great pleasure that the eminent Welsh tenor, Rhys Meirion, will sing the main role (King Edward) in the USA premiere of my work, The Bards of Wales, at Carnegie Hall on January 20th, 2014. We are fortunate in having such an outstanding soloist join us.”
