A VIRTUAL St David’s Day performance – including soloist Sir Bryn Terfel – will be aired today.
The Aloud Charity – which aims to engage with youngsters through choral singing and build their confidence – have gathered their mass virtual choir, Everyone Aloud, for the St David’s Day show.
The charity asked members of the public to submit videos of themselves singing in order to join the virtual choir, and they received more than 100 videos from across the world, including America, Japan, Germany and Holland.
Current and ex-members of Only Men Aloud, Only Boys Aloud and Only Kids Aloud joined in along with the public, and multiple members chose to submit as a family, with three generations submitting videos.
The age ranges from four to 80, with people of all ages celebrating March 1.
The choir will perform three Welsh songs; a short version of the Only Boys Aloud arrangement of Sospan Fach and Max Boyce hits Up & Under and Hymns & Arias, with all voices and videos merged to create one massive choir.
Acting Music Director at Aloud, Craig Yates, said: “The response from around the world was phenomenal; we received hours of footage to edit, which took me about five days.
“Having such a renowned performer as Sir Bryn to perform a solo makes it extra special, and we can’t wait for the public to see it and celebrate with us.”
Sir Bryn Terfel added: “What fun to be involved with ‘Everyone Aloud’ on our special patron Saint celebrations.
“Apologies to Max Boyce for my rendition of his hilarious composition.”
The video will be released at midday today.
