  • Only Boys Aloud - You Will Be Found from Dear Evan Hansen

    5:02

    Only Boys Aloud (OBA), part of The Aloud Charity, runs year-round with a mission to engage teenage boys across Wales with the power of choral singing and, through this, promote self-belief, confidence, encourage aspiration, build skills and develop communities.

    Through weekly OBA rehearsals, we engage with around 200 boys each week across Wales. In locations which cover some of the most deprived areas in Wales, the OBA choirs are free to join and there are no auditions to take part, making the scheme fully inclusive and accessible. This means that each rehearsal is a ‘melting pot’ of boys from completely different social and economic backgrounds who come together, form new friendships and discover what opportunities there are out there for them.

  • TEDxObserver - Tim Rhys-Evans and Only Boys Aloud - Performance

    19:53

    In 2000, Tim Rhys-Evans set up a Welsh male voice choir called Only Men Aloud, a contemporary take on the Welsh choral tradition. Eight years later, it was voted the nation's favourite choir when it won BBC 1's Last Choir Standing. In 2010, as part of his mission to safeguard Welsh singing traditions, and to keep choral singing alive in the communities in which it first developed, Tim formed Only Boys Aloud. It's open to all boys between the ages of 14 and 19, without audition, and there are now nine separate choirs, in nine South Wales towns. Together they form Only Boys Aloud. Mentored by the adult members of Only Men Aloud, part of Tim's mission is to inspire the boys in other areas of their lives and one way he does this is by providing unique performance opportunities, such as TEDxObserver.

  • Only Boys Aloud - Y Cymoedd yn Gân

    3:47

    Only Boys Aloud perform Y Cymoedd yn Gân (The Valleys in Song) - an original composition by Tim Rhys-Evans, OBA's Artistic Director.

    Recorded for a Welsh language documentary celebrating 5 years of Only Boys Aloud in December 2015.

    The lyrics were written especially for the song and no English translation exists. However, the meaning of the song is that once all across the Welsh Valleys, you could hear the sounds of industry and singing from the choirs and chapels. The Valleys were in song. But, as the industries declined so did the sounds of music and choirs. However, today there are new and young voices to be heard and the old sounds and harmonies are still sung so the Valleys are still in song.

    Hen yw yr alaw ond newydd yw'r lleisiau - The melodies are old but the voices are new

    Lyrics

    So this is Xmas
    And what have you done
    Another year over
    And a new one just begun
    And so this is Xmas
    I hope you have fun
    The near and the dear one
    The old and the young

    A very Merry Xmas
    And a happy New Year
    Let's hope it's a good one
    Without any fear

    And so this is Xmas (war is over)
    For weak and for strong (if you want it)
    For rich and the poor ones (war is over)
    The world is so wrong (now)
    And so happy Xmas (war is over)
    For black and for white (if you want it)
    For yellow and red ones (war is over)
    Let's stop all the fight (now)

    A very Merry Xmas
    And a happy New Year
    Let's hope it's a good one
    Without any fear

    And so this is Xmas (war is over)
    And what have we done (if you want it)
    Another year over (war is over)
    A new one just begun (now)
    And so happy Xmas (war is over)
    We hope you have fun (if you want it)
    The near and the dear one (war is over)
    The old and the young (now)

    A very Merry Xmas
    And a happy New Year
    Let's hope it's a good one
    Without any fear
    War is over, if you want it
    War is over now

    Happy Xmas
