March 3rd, 2011 - Competition Success for the Huddersfield Boys and Girls Choirs
Competition Success for the Huddersfield Boys and Girls Choirs



The Huddersfield Boys' Choir are celebrating success in this year's Mrs. Sunderland Festival. The competition, held in Huddersfield Town Hall, attracts groups from all over West Yorkshire and beyond.  The boys were the first winners of the new  Year 8 and Under Novice class (for choirs who hadn't yet won a competition), and were presented with a trophy for their performance of "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" and the spiritual "Chariot's Comin'".  They also came third in the Year 8 and Open Class on the same day.
 
Later in the evening, the Huddersfield Girls' Choir competed in the Under 19 competition against eight other choirs and were Commended (the same grade as the 3rd-placed choir).  This was the first competitive performance for a choir less than a year old, winning praise from adjudicator and audience for their performance of John Rutter's "For The Beauty of the Earth" and Albrecht and Althouse's "I am a Small Part of the World."
 
Both boys and girls are looking forward to their next competitive appearance at the National Festival of Music for Youth regional heats on March 12th, and the boys to singing Vespers at Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral with the cathedral choir the following week.
