The BBC website is starting to build anticipation for the second of the three episodes this Sunday (11th May). They’ve used a lovely snapshot of Cantabile with Jo Williamson.
It was a real honour and test of nerves to sing in front of the celebrity judges Gareth Malone, Laura Mvula and Suzi Digby – we obviously wanted to impress!
David Grant is presenting each episode and he was great during filming. He even managed to get all the audience singing in four part harmony AND sounding surprisingly good!
The first results are in – we now know the three Junior School Choirs who’ve made it through to the BBC Songs of Praise final which will be on Sunday 11th May 17:00 – 17:45. Catch-up on BBC iplayer if you missed the first of the three episodes.
Watch the Senior choirs next week on Sunday 4th May 17:00 – 17:45 to find out if Cantabile will be one of the three Senior School Choirs joining them!
Meanwhile our congratulations to all six of the junior choirs who took part:
Wow – it’s almost time to reveal the result of that weekend of singing in March.
On Sunday (27/4/14) the BBC will be showing the first of three episodes for the Songs of Praise School Choir of the Year 2014 which features the junior school choirs.
What is wonderful is the quality of choral singing which the children have achieved through sheer hard work and singing purely for the joy of it.
We hope you can support all the choirs by tuning in to all three episodes.
