Our Deansfield Chamber Choir had an amazing day last Wednesday (3rd July) representing Deansfield at the world-famous International Eisteddfod in Llangollen, Wales. Top choirs from all over the world have been coming to compete since 1947. This was Deansfield’s fourth visit, and the standard was especially high this year. We competed against choirs from China, USA, Canada, Poland, Wales and England. Deansfield’s performance of ‘Lightning!’ was electrifying and very captivating – they even made the audience laugh! Their final performance of ‘Can you hear me?’, which included signing, was particularly moving. Deansfield was the youngest choir by far, which was acknowledged by the international panel of adjudicators. They were awarded 4th place out of a field of 12 amazing choirs, with a mark of 84.7%. The winning choir was from Bangor in Wales and they were given 86% – so you can see how close the results were. Please watch the video at www.llangollen.tv to see how brilliantly our children sang.
