Felling Male Voice Choir competed in two major Music Festivals during their Diamond Jubilee Year.
In the International Eisteddfod at Middlesbrough, the choir were placed second. This is what the adjudicator said:
“Impressive singing. A beautiful velvety sound and a very confident musical reading.”
The second festival was to celebrate the 900th anniversary of the founding of Newcastle, when the son of William the Conqueror erected a “new castle” on the site of the present stone keep, built by Henry II in the 12th century. Felling were placed first and this is what the adjudicators said:
“A well disciplined choir in both technique and presentation. A fine rich sound, commitment to the music, and careful attention to detail. Virtuoso male voice singing.”
