Wales participated in the Eurovision Choir of the Year 2017. This was the second time in any of the Eurovision Network events that the United Kingdom has not participated as a unified state after 1994. The Welsh entry for the 2017 contest in Riga, Latvia was selected via the national final Côr Cymru ('Choir of Wales), which took place at the Aberystwyth Arts Centre, in Aberystwyth, Wales on 9 April 2017, and organised by the Welsh broadcaster S4C. An audition stage took place between 6–27 November 2016, to determine which acts would proceed to the next round of qualification. The semi-finals which took place between 17–19 February 2017, were divided into five categories (male voice; female voice; mixed; youth; and children's choirs) with the winner from each of the competing categories advancing to the grand final on 9 April 2017. Côr Merched Sir Gâr won the final of Côr Cymru 2017, and will represent Wales at the Eurovision Choir of the Year 2017.
