School Choir Of The Year to return for a third series

By Staff Reporter

The BBC Radio Ulster School Choir Of The Year is set to return to the airwaves next year, it has been announced.

Following on from the huge success of the second series earlier this year, the search to find the very best primary and post-primary school choirs in Northern Ireland will continue in 2017.

Presented by John Toal and Kerry McLean, The BBC Radio Ulster School Choir Of The Year is organised in association with the Ulster Youth Choir and supported by the Arts Council Of Northern Ireland (ACNI).

This year's winners Dalriada School, Ballymoney and St Patrick's Primary School, Drumgreenagh, Rathfriland beat off strong competition from 62 other competing choirs to perform in a live final in the Ulster Hall in April. Since then both choirs have been featuring across a range of BBC Radio Ulster's programming and events.
