Bleadon Choir Competition Success!


Bleadon Belles WI Choir


The Bleadon WI Choir, the Bleadon Belles, are through to the finals in a national competition called Singing for Joy, organised by the NFWI (National Federation of WIs) to celebrate the centenary year of the Women’s Institute. The enthusiastic choir have only been together for a year, but with their choirmaster Andrew King conducting and accompanied by Matthew Tilke, sang three songs in the regional finals in Exeter on 29th November. They were very excited to win the heat and will now go through to the finals in Birmingham in March 2015 where they will compete against five other regional finalists and will be performing a specially commissioned song “Singing for Joy” composed by Jonathan Willcocks, Honorary Fellow of the Royal College of Music. The winner will be performing in the Royal Albert Hall at the Centenary meeting of the NFWI.
