Bangor Grammar School Chamber Choir

The Chamber choir continues to go from strength to strength this year.  After performing in St Anne’s Cathedral for an Action Cancer event in December, and singing at our own Carol Service, we made an entry to the BBC School Choir of the Year Competition.  On Friday 27th January we travelled to Friends’ School Lisburn for the heats stage of the competition.  We performed Ubi Caritas by Ola Gjeilo and Sleep by Eric Whitacre.  The boys sang beautifully, with attention to detail and a lovely blended sound.  The feedback from the adjudicators was positive and encouraging, noting that we were the only all boys school in the heat and that we have to work harder because our voices can change unexpectedly at times!   I am feeling very proud of these boys and glad to have put the work in and had fun along the way.  Tune in to BBC Radio Ulster at the end of February to hear our performance!
