We are inviting members of the public, for one day only, to be part of Only Boys Aloud! We want you to join us in song to create one huge virtual choir to celebrate St David’s Day on 1st March.
We have prepared a medley of three songs: firstly, a short version of the Only Boys Aloud arrangement of the Welsh song ‘Sospan Fach’, and then two songs by Max Boyce.
There are two parts you could sing, the tune or the harmony part. (We would of course love it if you fancy doing both!)
How to take part:
1. Watch the relevant videos on YouTube –
- Tune – Score – https://youtu.be/x02aSmfVJEY
- Tune – Words – https://youtu.be/9LSEiGUQTwE
- Harmony – Score – https://youtu.be/9fVa-PEwk_E
- Harmony – Words – https://youtu.be/gCJz-nCxG34
2. Put some headphones on and get the score/words ready on one screen to read from.
3. Record yourself on a different phone, tablet or camera, making sure it is landscape – or sideways.
4. Send that video to us at by clicking the link http://bit.ly/everyonealoud, by Monday 22nd February.
We will put all of the videos together to create a very special virtual choir for St David’s Day. If you’d like to wear red or put a daffodil on, you’d be very welcome! We want everyone to join us: male voices, female voices, kids voices – just sing at the pitch you feel comfortable.
Please feel free to share this event with anyone you know who might like to take part too.
If you have any problems or questions, drop us an email on [email protected], and we’ll look forward to receiving your video.
Remember, the deadline for submissions is Midnight on Monday 22nd February.
