North Wales Choral Festival
10th November 2019
In November 2019 we entered the North Wales Choral Festival in Llandudno. We performed in the 'Musical and Show Tunes' category. This was a new event for us, having only entered Manchester based competitions previously.
We performed 'Feeling Good' from the musical The Roar of the Greasepaint - the Smell of the Crowd and 'Bohemian Rhapsody' from We Will Rock You. We all enjoyed the experience of singing at this new venue and listening to the other choirs performances.
The judges awarded us 83 points which put us in third position. You can see Lorraine with our award.
Hazel Grove Musical Festival
2nd March 2019
We once again competed in the Hazel Grove Musical Festival. The festival has been held annually since 1921, always in February and early March. It has competitions in Instrumental and Vocal music for all ages, and in Speech and Drama for children. The choir event is held at Hazel Grove Methodist Church on Wesley Street.
There were 7 choirs in this category and each performed 3 pieces of music of their choice. We sang Mary, Did You Know?, Lean On Me and Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me.
Last year we were awarded 2nd place, narrowly beaten by The Decibelles. This year, we were once again placed 2nd with a score of 88. 1st place were The Decibelles with a score of 90. So close! Here's hoping for 3rd time lucky in 2020.
