Singing Project in Japan

Singing Project in Japan

In Spring 2020, we were planning a visit for Only Boys Aloud to perform in Japan, following a new partnership between Wales Arts International, Arts Council Wales, The British Council and the Japanese Embassy.

Although the trip was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were determined to keep the planned singing project alive. So in 2021, we were delighted to take part in a virtual choral project with three children’s choirs 6000 miles away in Kitakyushu, Kumamoto and Oita.

We are so proud the project was featured on BBC Wales news page here.

Boys from Only Boys Aloud participated in weekly rehearsals with the Japanese choirs who learnt the rousing Welsh song ‘Calon Lân’, taught by our fantastic Aloud Choir Leaders.

To say thank you in the final sharing, the OBA choir performed the recent classic Anfonaf Angel (I’ll Send an Angel) written by Robat Arwyn and Hywel Gwynfryn.

We were so pleased that this important cultural exchange and sharing of Welsh Art was still able to take place and are looking forward to working with our friends in Japan again.
