When one day just isn’t enough . . . Announcing CânSing WEEK!! - [04/05/2016]

We are delighted to announce that this year our annual celebrations will be bigger and better than ever, with large events happening both North and South during the week of 20th - 24th June. 


CânSing is now in its seventh year and continues to affirm Wales’ reputation as the “Land of Song” by providing resources, training, support & events across the country. We have an ever-growing family of “CânSing-ers” and are very proud of our collective achievements. So this year, and working with our brilliant partners, we have decided to extend our usual annual event, from 1 day to a whole week, to enable us to support more events and provide more opportunities for you to celebrate, wherever you are! 


Each event will be slightly different but all will delivered by one (or more) of our team of our professional Animateurs and will offer a varied programme of repertoire. So far, we can confirm:

We are keen to hear from anyone, particularly in the West of Wales who would be keen to host an event on Friday 24th June (or another day that week if we can support with members of the team).


To register your interest in one (or more) of the events, please follow the links above. Also, please let us know if you are having your own CânSing celebration. 


Once again, we are working in partnership with Welsh National Opera, this year we have 3 joint events. Our focus this year is on the new CânSing / WNO Sosban Fach (‘Little Saucepan’) resources. This famous traditional Welsh folk-song is commonly known as a rugby song and was sung in the World War 1 trenches. The piece will be available in a choral version (arr. Jeff Howard, originally commissioned by BBC National Orchestra of Wales) with a new English translation by Sian Meinir (Chorus, Welsh National Opera) with a full orchestral backing track for all to learn and sing along with!


We are also delighted to be working in partnership with North Wales Choral festival. This 3 day annual event at Venue Cymru in Llandudno hosts a “schools day” (this year on November 4th 2016) and we would love to see some of our CânSing Schools take part, for the first time this year, schools will be allowed to perform using CânSing backing tracks - which is very exciting! There will be more information and “sign up stations” at the two north Wales events (Wrexham & Llandudno) but schools from across Wales are welcome too. For more information about the North Wales Choral festival please go to www.northwaleschoralfestival.com


We really hope you will get involved with a celebration event in your area. All events are free to attend and schools are allocated places on a “first come, first served” basis so please book early to avoid disappointment. 


The booking procedures are different for each event, please email cansing@wno.org.uk to book your place by 24/5/16


I look forward to seeing you at one of the events! 


Keep singing!
