Envirovision Song Quest

The Enviro-Rock event of the year electrified audiences in Pontypridd during the 2011 Enviro Vision Song Quest.

The thrilling rock concert performed by young enviro-rockers from throughout Rhondda Cynon Taf lifted the roof of the Muni Arts Centre Pontypridd.

The fifth annual Enviro-Vision Song Quest saw hundreds of people join in the frenzied excitement of the evening.

The major competition organised by Rhondda Cynon Taf Council’s Streetcare Team in partnership with Cultural Services saw seven comprehensive schools produce their own environmentally themed songs and music to be performed in front of the enthusiastic crowd.

Amidst a huge roar of excitement Y Pant Comprehensive School was named the winner of the County-Borough wide competition for the second year running, followed by Tonypandy Community College in second place and Aberdare Girls Comprehensive School in third. The top prizes included £600 for first place, £300 for second and £100 for third.

The showcase of local talent raised the roof of the Pontypridd venue, as each of the youngsters took to the stage to perform their own compositions based on one of several environmental themes including; food waste recycling, environmental crime, reduce, reuse recycle and zero waste.

The 2011 Enviro-Vision Song Quest marked the fifth joint-project between the Council’s Streetcare Services Team and Sonig Youth Music Industry, which is part of the Council’s Cultural Services department.
