New Chorus Awards Launched to Celebrate Choirs all over Scotland

From Rebecca Giblin

Special stories from singing groups across Scotland are being hunted out for the newly launched Chorus Awards. Anyone can nominate a group, individual choir member or musical director for the Local Connection, Newcomer, Milestone, Unique Story, Inspiration and Young People categories.

Scotland Sings has launched the Chorus Awards to showcase the wonderful activities choirs are involved in and to celebrate the people helping to make great things happen. Anyone can make a nomination and choir members can even put themselves forward for one of the six categories.

Alison Burns, Scotland Sings Coordinator, says of the new awards, “What’s great is that this is not about the best singer or which choir has sung to the biggest audience, it’s all about the stories behind what makes each group so special. I know of one choir that has members from teenagers up to 80 year olds who sing together every week. What other awards would celebrate something like that?”

So, whether you’re part of a choir that is experimenting with new music or know an inspirational musical director who is bringing a community together, the Chorus Awards are the way to recognise and applaud this contribution.

Nominations can be made via an online form by the closing date of Friday 15th May (the event or activity being highlighted should have taken place between 16th May 2014 and 15th May 2015).

Winners will be announced online on Friday 19th June and will form part of a showcase on the Scotland Sings website. To find out more about the individual categories and make a nomination see the website here
