Holloway Children’s Choir to Compete in the Llangollen International Eisteddfod 2019

Categories -

The Holloway Children’s Choir has had some fantastic news: we have been selected to compete in the Junior and Junior Folk competitions at the Llangollen International Eisteddfod next Summer!

Info on the Eisteddfod can be found here: https://international-eisteddfod.co.uk/

I’m so proud of the children for this achievement, and I can’t wait to bring them to the UK.  We are preparing for our winter concert at the end of December, footage of which I can share when the time comes; in the meantime, here are some of the videos we made for the application to Llangollen.

Performance Class:

Kodály, Esti Dal:

You can see a rehearsal of this piece, where I think they sing quite well too!  It’s not an easy piece to sing.
