In January 2011 Ifield Community College Choir was one of two choirs chosen by the BBC to represent the UK in this prestigious choral festival, which showcases the best amateur choirs from across Europe and North America.
"Let the Peoples Sing" is a biennial event , organised by the European Braodcasting Union, and is hosted this year by the BBC. We are delighted that our choir reached the semi-finals of this elite international competition.
Although neither British choir has reached the finals, the Ifield Choir will be travelling to the BBC's new Media Centre in Salford to perform its repertoire in a gala concert on the day of the finals to represent "the Best of British"
The concert will take place at the BBC Media Centre, Salford Quays (Manchester) on the afternoon of Saturday 15th October 2011.
