Music in Durham

Northern Spirit in Choir of the Year final

Huge congratulations to Northern Spirit Singers who have made it through to the category finals of Choir of the Year 2014. They will perform at the Royal Festival Hall on 19 October, alongside two choirs from Wales and one from Dorset in the Adult Choir category, and twelve choirs in the other three categories.

Best of luck to Northern Spirit – they’re an awesome group of singers and I’m sure they’ll do brilliantly.
