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:

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.


Béla Bartók: Song of Loneliness (English version by Geoffry Russell-Smith)


Advanced Class:

Huangzi: Seeing Plum blossom in the snow (extract)


Benjamin Britten: Friday Afternoons Op.7, No.3 “Cuckoo”

Jasmine Flower (Jiangsu folk song) arr. Yang Hong Nian
A Ma Lei Ho (Tibetan Mountain Song) arr. Chen Yi (extracts)
