Success at the National Choir of the Year

The Howling Wolves Chamber Choir was elected 'Choir of the Day’ at the auditions of the National Choir of the Year at the Warwick Arts Centre on 19 March.

Paul Mealor, Composer and Choir of The Year adjudicator, said: "Choir of the Year is a remarkable programme which brings the whole country together in song. Over the last thirty years I have been amazed at how this event has really brought all kinds of people and groups together and become the highlight of the choral singing world. We have young and old, gospel, barbershop, classical and traditional singing – all sharing the same stage."

38 students, including 3 guitarists and a violinist, represented the Howlin’ Wolves Chamber Choir in the heats of the National Choir of the Year Competition.

The choir is a non-auditioned ensemble made up of Music and Popular Music students, from all over the UK and Malaysia, China, Portugal and Cyprus!

Our 8-minute programme included:

  • The Lord’s Prayer - Matthew Martin
  • On the plains, fairy trains - Thomas Weelkes
