Lancaster school choir hit all the right notes

Lancaster Royal Grammar School Choir hit the right notes in the Lancashire Choir of the Year final.

The finest choral talent from across the county graced the stage of the Charter Theatre last night during the spectacular finale of the Lancashire Choir of the Year competition.

The Royal Grammar School Choir won the People's Choice award, a prize as voted for by the public.

Launched in May, the new annual competition aims to encourage a wide range of choirs from communities, workplaces and schools to come together to showcase their love of singing.

This year's inaugural competition reached a thrilling climax on Thursday evening during a special celebration event at the Charter Theatre in Preston, based within the iconic Guild Hall.

The six choirs who made it through to the final took to the stage to deliver a musical spectacle for the audience.

County Councillor Peter Buckley, Lancashire County Council's cabinet member for community and cultural services, said: "We launched this competition so we could shine a light on all of the wonderful singing talent we have in Lancashire, and to celebrate the joy of song.

"Singing brings people of all ages from different communities and backgrounds together, and this was no more evident than at our grand final at the Charter Theatre.

"It was a fantastic evening that I hope will live long in everyone's memory.

"I want to congratulate and thank all of our finalists for sharing their talent with us on this special night, and to everyone else who entered this year's competition."
