which took place in Camborne, Cornwall on Saturday. The ladies chorus, who
enjoy singing competitively, and entertaining locally, were taking part in the Camborne
Music Festival for the second time, having also won an award when they last
competed there in 2008.
Led by their recently
appointed Musical Director, Alex de Bruin, the chorus sang three contrasting
songs in unaccompanied four part harmony. For the two newest members of the
chorus, Linda Salter and Rachel Dunn, it was their first taste of singing with
the chorus in competition.
Musical Director Alex de
Bruin said after the competition "I'm so proud of Avon Harmony; every
single member has worked so hard, resulting in a brilliant win. The
adjudicator's comments show that we are ready to step up to the next level. I
would like to thank our coaches, Linda Corcoran (MD of Bristol's Great Western
Chorus) and Liz Garnett for their help and support, as well as all the husbands
and partners of the chorus members, who have been so supportive"
The chorus, which meets
regularly on Thursday evenings for rehearsals at Fairfield High School in
Horfield, welcomes new members, who do not need to be able to read music in
order to join.
Future plans include
running a short course for women wanting to find out more about singing in four
part harmony in March next year and taking part in the Open Choir Festival 2013
