Choir of the Year – High Praise for Town Hall Gospel Choir

October 24th, 2013 2:09 pm

Birmingham’s Town Hall Gospel Choir have been named Songs of Praise Gospel Choir of the Year, winning out against choirs from London, Nottingham and Preston to land the prestigious title. The Drum are proud to welcome them on Sun 15 Dec, performing an inspiration selection of festive carols and gospel favorites.

“I am very proud of our choir. It was a wonderful competition,” said choir director Colin Anderson, who travels from London to work with the choir. “I told everyone to just let go and enjoy it. It was so uplifting.”

“We strive for technical excellence and sing songs that other choirs wouldn’t tackle. We want to get out and about and share our music, and we hope the exposure on Songs of Praise will help that.”

The choir has up to 30 or more members from all backgrounds, and was formed for a one-off concert to mark the reopening of the Town Hall in 2007, but was so good that it has continued since. The choir has performed everywhere from Birmingham’s Symphony Hall to the Royal Albert Hall, and will be appearing at The Drum on Sun 15 Dec at 7pm in Town Hall Gospel Christmas. To be part of this special festive occasion, Book your tickets now!
