Barnardo’s National Choral Competition.

Congratulations to the Female Voices Choir for qualifying for the final of the Barnardo’s National Choral Competition. They are one of only six choirs from across the UK to reach this stage.

The event takes place at the Royal Festival Hall on  March 17 and marks an excellent achievement for a choir that has developed rapidly over the last eighteen months. Last year the choir won classes in the Mid Somerset Festival for sacred music and female voice choirs, so this year it was decided that they would move to the next level and take on the challenge of competing at a national level. 

The day includes both the competition and a final concert where all competing choirs perform. Anyone wishing to attend can purchase tickets from the South Bank Centre.

We wish the choir luck over the next few weeks as they prepare for the competition.
