The Senior Choir of Loreto College Coleraine added one final title to an impressive year of accolades this week. Having taken first place in the class for School Choirs Under 19 in the Bangor International Choral Festival recently, the students were delighted to learn that they had been named Best Performers in the competition as a whole.

The Festival, which took place in St. Comgall's Parish Centre, Bangor, is a unique and hugely popular event attracting School, Church, Youth, Ladies, Male and Mixed voice Choirs, both local and international, from the length of Ireland and beyond, to compete in four days of singing. Given the high standard of competition from adult choirs in the contest, it was a particularly notable achievement for the Loreto students to emerge with the Best Performers trophy.

The Choir, along with Choirmaster Mr Howard Gillespie and assistant Mrs Annie Sharkey, was congratulated on this tremendous achievement by Mr Brian Lenehan, Principal of Loreto College.
