The Junior Choir, first prize winners in Bangor and Coleraine Choral competitions
25/04/2008 COMPETITION SUCCESS FOR LORETO JUNIOR CHOIR

Choral singing continues to go from strength to strength at Loreto College Coleraine, Specialist School. 

Following in the footsteps of the Senior Choir, who performed to great acclaim last month at the Young Prague 2008 Music Festival, the Loreto College Junior Choir took top prizes at two competitions in late April.

First stop for the fifty-strong ensemble, which is composed of students from Years 8-10 at Loreto College, was the Bangor International Choral Festival, where the choir took first place in its section.  This success was recreated on home ground a few days later, when the choir took the trophy for first place in the Under 14 section of the Coleraine Festival.

Showing great promise for the years ahead, this dedicated group of enthusiastic young singers rehearse weekly under the baton of Loreto College Choirmaster, Mr Howard Gillespie.  Both choir and conductor were congratulated on their impressive achievements by Mr Brian Lenehan, Principal of Loreto College, on behalf of all the staff and students of the school.
