Years 5-6

Only Kids Aloud

Only Kids Aloud is a pan-Wales choir programme for children in years 5-6.

Only Kids Aloud Chorus


The Only Kids Aloud Chorus is an annual project that runs continuously for 12 months each year. We are proud to welcome around 70 talented girls and boys from across Wales to the programme each year, who audition for their place and enjoy regional rehearsals as well as   residential-style learning. With no official National Children’s Choir for Wales, OKA provides a high-quality choral experience for children from every corner of the country.

The Only Kids Aloud Chorus have had the opportunity to sing at some spectacular events since it’s conception in 2010.

Why Join the Only Kids Aloud Chorus?

Increase Confidence

The Only Kids Aloud Chorus not only provides children with a platform; it introduces them to children from all parts of Wales, gives them the opportunity to sing together and pushes them to see their own brilliant potential.

Sense of Community

Children who join the Only Kids Aloud Chorus become a part of a wonderful and supportive community of like-minded individuals who all support each other, cheer for one another and help others thrive.

Develop Skills

Children in the OKA Chorus not only develop their musical abilities, but learn to become more self-reliant and independent, develop better time-management skills and learn to communicate more openly with others.
