2018 winner of the ‘Children’s Choir of the World Trophy’
It has been one year since we were awarded the top prize from the Llangollen International Musical Eisteddfod, Wales; and it still feels as exciting as the day we won!
Imagine the exhilaration, after our Canadian girls had already placed 1st in the Senior Children’s competition and 3rd in the Folksong competition, to hear the name British Columbia Girls Choir announced as the overall top children’s choir!
We share this honour with the outstanding Hereford Cathedral Girls Choir of England. Twelve children’s choirs from all over the world participated in two days of competition, including choirs from: America (3), Australia, Canada (2), Czech Republic, England (2), India, Isle of Man, and Wales.
This is the second time that the ‘Children’s Choir of the World Trophy’ has been awarded to a Canadian Choir. The first time was in 2015 – to the exceptional Shallaway Youth Choir of Newfoundland & Labrador.
