Harrogate Music Festival

Yesterday saw us make our annual visit to Harrogate Music Festival. In the open choir class we were placed third – the class being won by a very large choir from Huddersfield and Friday Voices – an excellent group from Burton on Trent coming second. Our second class was the barbershop class, which we won with distinction. We were then asked to compete in the Choral Challenge class and although we gained distinction again the class was won by Friday Voices, who had also won the church choir class. They were deserving winners! It was disappointing that for a number of reasons, we had no quartets competing this year.
Now we are all systems go for our Spanish trip! Less than 3 weeks to go now. We’re really looking forward to sending the weekend together and taking part in the convention as well as having the opportunity to watch two top international quartets, Love Notes and Musical Island Boys. How exciting!
