Welsh National Opera’s roots lie in members of the community coming together driven by their love of song. WNO Community Chorus welcomes adult amateur singers of all ages and backgrounds from across Wales (and over the border) to come and take part in operatic experiences with WNO and be part of our WNO community.
WNO Community Chorus is not a set group of singers; each WNO Community Chorus performance will have a new sign-up process. Recruitment will either be non-auditioned or auditioned depending on the nature of the final performance.
We have recruited a Venue Cymru, Llandudno-based WNO Community Chorus to perform as the North Wales International Music Festival Chorus in a Magnificat concert as part of the North Wales International Music Festival. The repertoire will include Bach Magnificat in D, William Mathias Magnificatand two Welsh premières - young British composer Oliver Tarney’s Magnificat and Magnificat by the Royal and Welsh composer Paul Mealor.
WNO Community Chorus North will be performing alongside:
•Welsh National Opera soloists
The concert is on Sunday 24 September 7pm at St Asaph Cathedral during the middle weekend of the North Wales International Music Festival.
