A large group of people of various ages are singing together.

Community Chorus

Welsh National Opera’s roots lie in members of the community coming together driven by their love of song. WNO Community Chorus invites adult amateur singers of all ages and backgrounds 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 performance is completely open to new and returning singers, you just need to sign up. We sometimes ask you to audition, not always, depending on the nature of the final performance.

We also offer opportunities to learn more about the operas we are performing, with daytime 'taste of' workshops exploring the piece followed by a visit to the opera itself.
