Famous record label Decca Classics has teamed up with Cardiff-based Boomerang+ for three audition days this week, to find new voices in the classical crossover world.

In Cardiff and Caernarfon the company will be in auditioning 200 people who have submitted demo uploads to the A Voice For Wales website. Mark Wilkinson, managing director of Decca, told the Western Mail: "We've had an amazing response and are looking forward to hearing over 200 really promising, exciting singers during our three days in Wales."

Tom Lewis, head of A&R at Decca, said: "I'm sure that many of those we've invited for auditions are already familiar faces and voices in Wales, but they are as yet unknown to the rest of the world. I'm also told that there's at least one very familiar face that the Welsh public will definitely know - but necessarily for their singing."

We'll keep up to date with developments as they become available.
