The Chamber Choir is entering the Barnardo’s National Choral Competition. A recording session is booked for after half term and the choir has been rehearsing the two contrasting pieces which they will record for their entry.

The choir is entering the senior age category, for young people aged 12 to 18. Just six senior choirs will be chosen to perform in the finals, which will be held at London’s Royal Festival Hall on 12 March 2018. This prestigious venue, at the heart of the Southbank Centre complex, is one of the world’s leading performance venues and will also play host to an evening concert featuring all of the twenty-four junior and senior choirs selected for the finals. Each choir will sing one of their competition pieces as well as joining in two massed choir items.

First and second place will be awarded in each age category. The two winning choirs will be invited to sing in one of the Barnardo’s 2018 Young Supporters Concerts, and Douglas Coombes MBE has offered to write a song for the two winning choirs.

The National Choral Competition is a wonderful and exciting opportunity for the talented young singers in the Chamber Choir.
