Only Kids Aloud Chorus Auditions
Saturday 23 March 9:00 am - Tuesday 30 April 5:00 pmFree
The Only Kids Aloud Chorus relaunches with open and free auditions running this month, thanks to extended funding from The Hodge Foundation.
The OKA Chorus was initially launched in 2011 to support and reinvigorate the Welsh choral tradition and effect real change in the lives of young people from areas of social deprivation.
The Only Kids Aloud Chorus is open to boys and girls currently in Years 5 and 6 who find singing makes a very real difference in their lives.
After the success of last year’s OKA pilot audition process and performances, The Hodge Foundation has pledged a longer 18-month stint to run this year and into next.
Full and partial bursaries are available in order to ensure accessibility for all and to cover the costs of a full 18-month programme of activities. Audition places are allocated on a first come first served basis and will include a group workshop and an individual audition with OKA Musical Director, Tim Rhys-Evans MBE.
Those interested should apply for an audition via www.aloud.cymru and be available for the workshop dates listed.
Auditions will be held at Porth Eirias, Colwyn Bay on Saturday 23 March; Aberystwyth Arts Centre on Sunday 24 March; Pembroke College, Haverfordwest on Tuesday 26 March (evening) and Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Cardiff on Saturday 30 March.
