Inspiring Children

What a fantastic 5 years we have had. Choirs from all over Lancashire have entered our competition and, in 2019, we had 7 regional heats, with 11 choirs going through to the County Final. It is a delight to see and hear the choirs perform and to get to know the teachers and see the commitment that goes into giving the children opportunities to express themselves musically. Some of the choirs involved have never entered a competition before and some of them have only recently been formed. It is evident to us that music education is alive and well in Lancashire.

The Last Choir Singing Competition is the brainchild of businessman George Critchley, who wanted to give something back to a community that has supported his firm for the last 15 years. Moving forward with our new sponsors we are keen to raise awareness of singing in junior schools and to demonstrate that music education is alive and well in Lancashire.

We are all delighted with the success of the competition over the last 5 years and are thrilled to be accepting entries for the Last Choir Singing 2020!

Don’t be left out! Already, many of the choirs that have entered enjoyed taking part so much that they have already put their names down for next year. If you have a choir, or intend to start a choir, please get your entry in before the deadline of the 29th November 2019.

Keep on singing!

The aim of the competition is to provide children with a forum for learning new performance techniques, developing musical skills and experiencing the excitement of singing to a large audience.

We have been delighted by some of the stories we have heard from teachers whose choirs have been involved in the competition, stories such as better engagement with parents, more children interested in joining the choirs, happy comments from the children, relationships developing between the schools.
