Recent OBA Projects

Sound UK

We were proud to represent Wales as part of Sound UK’s project A Song For Us in March 2022. This project commissioned leading music creators to write new songs inspired by the people of their county. In Wales’ case, Grammy-award winning and Aloud Ambassador Amy Wadge and Aloud’s founder Tim Rhys-Evans were commissioned to write a song especially for our Aloud choirs.

Inspired by the struggles we all experienced during Covid-19 lockdowns, the emotional song encourages us all to take a breath and remind us that we are never alone.

Singing Project in Japan​

We were very proud to work on this cultural singing project in partnership with three schools in Japan. Our Choir Leaders, along with members of Only Boys Aloud, hosted a series of workshops to teach the Japanese pupils our version of Calon Lân. And even though the choirs were 6000 miles away, they sounded beautiful!
