YOUNG singers have celebrated their success in a national competition.
And music fans will be able to see Lindley Junior School Choir’s performance when it is shown on television later this month.
The 60-strong choir took part in the final of the Choir of the Year 2012 competition at the Royal Festival Hall in London.
They competed alongside five other top choirs from across the country in front of an audience of more than 2,000.
The children were narrowly beaten by the music students of Les Sirenes from Glasgow, but conductor Alison North said the did a “wonderful” job as they held their own against the adult choirs.
The Grand Final was broadcast on BBC Radio on Sunday and fans will be able to see the award-winning group on BBC Four on Friday, November 23 at 7.30pm.
Lindley earned their place in the final after scooping the title of Children’s Choir of the Year at Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall.
The choir performed works by Mervyn Cousins, Bob Chilcott and Larysa Kuzmenko to win the title.
The final saw the winners of the Adult, Open, Youth and Children’s section choirs sing live on stage.
