Calderdale Primary School Singing Competition

Halifax Choral Society in conjunction with NOEL runs an annual singing competition, inviting schools to submit a recording of their singing group performing two contrasting songs. A small number of singing groups from the recordings are selected for the next stage. In the weeks that follow, NOEL’s Artistic Director, John Pryce-Jones, visits each of the selected schools and spends some time working with them to help polish their selected songs.

These groups then take part in a ‘Sing-Off’; with the winning group invited to perform in the famous ‘Carols & Brass Concert’ in December at the Victoria Theatre alongside the Black Dyke Brass Band and the Halifax Choral Society.
