We had another great day out at the Bournemouth Festival this year and we were really happy to have retained the Bright Cup for Choral Singing.

A moving performance - outstanding.
Wow - what a performance!
Amazing use of attack and great range of dynamics.
It is so exciting to hear full part singing brilliantly controlled and balanced.
