Following its Wigmore Hall debut in 2017, the Principality Only Boys Aloud Academi makes a welcome return. Only Boys Aloud, coordinated by The Aloud Charity, uses choral singing to effect positive change amongst teenage boys across Wales, promoting self-belief and self-confidence, and developing a sense of community.

The Academi comprises 32 of the older OBA boys who show particular musical promise: this performance is the result of a residential summer school where the boys are challenged, encouraged, and supported to do more and better.
