WOW….Vale Harmony left the Convention stage with fantastic applause ringing in our ears in a packed Arena at the Venue Cymru in Llandudno on Saturday .
We were the last of 36 choruses to sing in this year’s convention..no pressure then!…and even though the hall was huge, it wasn’t big enough to accommodate everyone who wanted to get in.. obviously they all wanted to hear us!
Newly promoted last year to the 3rd Division, Vale Harmony were placed 4th out of 11 in the Division.. a tremendous climb in just two years.
Competing against the cream of British Barbershopping with some huge choruses, we were judged 25th overall… a rise of three places on last year. Pretty good going, we think, for a chorus of just 16 men!
A huge thanks to our wives and girlfriends whose whoopin’ and hollerin’ spurred us on when we stepped out on stage in front of that cheering crowd.
We delivered our first number “5ft 2, Eyes of Blue” at a cracking pace and, when the applause died down, sang the emotional ballad “Among My Souvenirs” to end the contest.
Well Done Guys.
