A win for Derby A Cappella at the Derby Arts Festival

Posted by on May 8, 2017 in Uncategorized | One Comment

Derby A Cappella took first place in the Barbershop Class on the Adult Choirs day of this year’s Derby Arts Festival held at the Church of St John the Evangelist, Derby on Saturday 6 May. In doing so we were awarded the Charles Southern Trophy seen here outside the church with some members of the chorus.  Adjudicator David Patrick said we created a “closely knit and vibrant choral sound with good and colourful diction”.
