Coleraine High Schoo; has won a coveted place in the live final of this year’s BBC Radio Ulster School Choir Of The Year.

Over the course of the next four weeks, choirs from across NI will be continuing to sing to impress as they battle it out for a place in the final of the BBC Radio Ulster School Choir Of The Year.

The series, part of BBC Music NI, will culminate in a live final from the Ulster Hall on Sunday, April 26.

Coleraine High competed against Ballycastle High School, St Cecilia’s College, St Mary’s College and Thornhill College, all from Derry, for a place in the final.

But it was the Coleraine school which impressed the judging panel, made up of Richard Yarr, Senior Producer Classical Music, BBC Radio Ulster; Ciaran Scullion, Head of Music, Arts Council for Northern Ireland and Dominic Peckham, orchestral and choral conductor.

The competition is produced in association with the Ulster Youth Choir, and supported by the Arts Council for Northern Ireland (ACNI).

The winning choirs will help BBC Radio Ulster celebrate its 40th anniversary throughout this year and feature across a range of the station’s programming and events.
