The Cottontown Chorus from Bolton have scooped up their 7th Gold Medal title in the 2018 British Association of Barbershop Singers chorus contest, in which Spirit of Harmony placed 5th.
The Grand Central Chorus from the East Midlands came in a close 2nd place, with relative newcomer Meantime from Greenwich (get it?) winning the Bronze Medal.
The contest took place at Harrogate International Centre on 26th May 2018, and saw 35 choruses from all over the UK take part.
The National Quartet contest also took place over the same weekend, and saw The Locksmiths crowned 2018 Champions. Spirit of Harmony’s own quartet 4 On Demand did a great job and placed 6th overall with their best score to date.
Huge congratulations from Spirit of Harmony to all the winners and medalists, and to everyone who participated in what was another amazing convention! We’ll be missing out next year as we’ve decided to take a trip to the Spanish Barbershop Convention instead (eek!), but we’re excited to be back at BABS in 2020!
