Hard Côr 2023

A joint Wales Millennium Centre and National Youth Arts Wales project, Hard Côr brings together musicians aged 18 – 25 to form a unique vocal collective.  

Participants come together to explore a range of music styles and techniques; blending choral singing with genres such as grime, hip hop and RnB, and developing a range of skills including vocalising, MCing, rapping and beatboxing.  

This project offers training and music creation with the country’s best practitioners and musicians, culminating in a showcase of talent that celebrates Wales’ increasingly innovative and exciting music scene.
