The world’s number one brass band, Cory combine once again for a musical movie experience with award-winning male vocal ensemble Only Men Aloud.

Only Men Aloud first achieved national prominence in 2008 when they won the top prize on the BBC television programme Last Choir Standing. They have since performed in leading venues throughout the UK, including at the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games, while they have recorded five albums that have featured highly in the Music Charts, including Band of Brothers which spent three weeks at number one and was voted Album of the Year at the Classical Brit Awards in 2010.

Cory’s Musical Director Philip Harper says of this collaboration: “We are very excited at the prospect of working with Only Men Aloud again. With Cory’s unique brand of brass band entertainment, we are not only passionate about bringing the genre of brass bands into the 21st century but also committed, in equal measure with Only Men Aloud, to reinvigorating the genre of brass and voices which has so much untapped potential in today’s musical world.”

BIOGRAPHY

Only Men Aloud

Who are Only Men Aloud?

Only Men Aloud were formed in 2000. The group's aim was to inject some new blood into the Welsh male choir tradition. The group's repertoire is varied and eclectic, from Welsh folksongs and hymns to musicals and opera, from barbershop and swing to pop.

The choir won The BBC's Last Choir Standing in the summer of 2008, and released their debut album shortly afterwards, which went gold in the UK.
