We held our 16th Primary School Choir of the Year competition on Monday 25th March. Ten talented choirs from Blackpool Primary Schools and Academies competed for the prize of Choir of the Year.
Each choir sang an 8 minute varied programme, which was very enjoyable. Our very much respected adjudicators, Mrs Janice Pounds and Mr Neill Oldham had the unenviable task of deciding upon the winners.
The winners of Choir of the Year 2019 were Norbreck Primary Choir who took first place for the second year in a row.
Second place went to Anchorsholme Primary Academy.
Third Place to Devonshire Primary Academy.

If your child is interested in developing their voice Blackpool Music Service now have two excellent LA choirs which rehearse at Blackpool Music Centre every Tuesday from 4.00pm until 5.00pm (primary) and 5.00pm until 6pm (secondary) term time only.
The rehearsals are very enjoyable and the repertoire extensive. All items are chosen with the pupils in mind, so everyone can participate with confidence and they perform at several prestigious venues during each year.
