In November 2006 Clera, the Society for the Traditional Instruments of Wales, celebrated its 10th anniversary. During those 10 years the society had concentrated mainly on organising workshops, teaching Welsh melodies & the traditional method of playing them. The 40 musicians who appeared on the Galeri stage in Caernarfon for the anniversary concert were the product of those workshops. The new ensemble needed a name. The Welsh word for orchestra is cerddorfa; Clera is the name of the society, so a combination of both produced Clerorfa. Originally, there were no further plans beyond this single concert, but the enthusiastic response on the night itself meant that the new group simply had to carry on!
