Schools Choir Competition
Congratulations go to Kingsley School from Bideford, led by Chris Beechey, Head of Music, who just edged it on the day and were named the winners. The choir won a coveted slot to perform at the concert.
The runners up who came a very close second were St Peter’s C of E Aided School from Exeter. The trophy was presented by Steve Screech, general manager of Apple Taxis Exeter, who are headline sponsors of the event.
Sam Abrahams, from La La Choirs, who are hosting the concert and ran the competition, said: “This is the third year of running the Schools Choir Competition and each year I am amazed by the very high standard of the entries.
"It is fantastic to see school choirs are still thriving and long may it continue! I am really excited to see what our winners, Kingsley School, come up with for our concert in the Cathedral - I know that they put a lot of work in to reaching the final and I’m sure they will be rehearsing hard now for the performance itself.
"The Cathedral is such an amazing venue and the charity is very special to us so I’m sure it will be an experience to remember for them for years to come.”
CLIC Sargent Singers
The event will also feature a special performance from a group of young musicians, all of whom have been affected by cancer, in a group called the CLIC Sargent Singers.
This group of talented young musicians and singers met at this year's CLIC Sargent summer music workshop. The charity's Music Programme for 16-24 year olds is part-funded by Youth Music and supports budding young singers and musicians with, or recovering from cancer.
Projects designed to raise confidence and self-esteem includes concert and festival trips; workshops; one to one tuition; studio recording and performance experiences.
The CLIC Sargent singers will be performing in Manchester and London, including the Royal Albert Hall, before heading to the Exeter Cathedral. Last year they were truly inspirational, blowing the crowd away with their talent and this year will be no different.
Making a difference
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Jordan Anderton said: “CLIC Sargent is extremely grateful for the magnificent support we receive from the La La Choir.
"They started organising this event in February; the work they put in for CLIC Sargent is humbling and I cannot wait to be there on 8 December. It is going to be a very special evening.”
"Please come along and get in the Christmas spirit this December, not only will you be making a difference to CLIC Sargent but are guaranteed a fantastic festive evening.”
With thanks to our sponsors
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Jordan Anderton continued: “I would also like to thank our headline sponsor Apple Taxis Exeter for their support.
"Thanks to their generosity, more of the money raised on the night will be going to support children and young people with cancer.”
