I am absolutely delighted to announce the winners of our first competition in conjunction with British composer Dr Douglas Coombes MBE. Drumroll please 🥁 ……and the winning photo goes to Cantamici choir from Leicestershire!
Here Sally Coles, Cantamici secretary tells the story behind the photo:
‘This shows an early photo of Cantamici, taken during our very first tour, to Dublin, now over 25 years ago. We travelled by coach to County Wicklow, where we sang in the ruins of the medieval monastery at Glendalough. It was chilly and a bit drizzly, but the atmosphere was spellbinding, and it was the forerunner to many other happy concert tours!’
Douglas is now working in conjunction with Cantamici Music Director David Necklen to create a beautiful piece of choral music for the choir to perform and debut so watch this space!
It’s been an absolute joy seeing the wonderful photos and videos of your choirs so thank you for everyone who took part in the competition, I’m sure there will be more!
