Grand Welsh Singalong Challenge Progress
Why a Grand Welsh Singalong?
One of the things we have missed most in the last year is live music, singing and the connection that comes from the collective experience of gigs and choral singing. Many of us have experienced loneliness and have struggled with our mental health and the lack of stimulation.
Wales is the land of song and we want to celebrate this as part of our Grand Week in Wales. We hope to be able to lift the nation’s spirits by joining together to celebrate and show off whatever musical talents we have. This is an opportunity for musicians from all across Wales, of all ages, skills and abilities, to be part of a Grand Welsh Singalong.
What is the Grand Welsh Singalong challenge?
We want to collate 1000 musical performances, whether that be singing, playing an instrument or any other musical talent you have. We would like to hear music and see performances from a wide range of genres of music and from every corner of our country.
Our Grand Welsh Singalong will culminate in certain participants being selected to take part in creating a remotely recorded, collaborative rendition of the Welsh National Anthem, coupled with a video montage of the other activities that have taken place across the week.
How can you get involved?
You could also use this as an opportunity to fundraise for Nanny Biscuit or a local charity of your choice.
All money raised for Nanny Biscuit will be used to combat food poverty and loneliness within communities across Wales; issues that have been exacerbated over the last year.
We’re very grateful to the amazing brands and organisations that are helping deliver this national event
