Budleigh Salterton Male Voice Choir is celebrating success in a prestigious competition.
The choir received third prize in the large choir category at the Cornwall International Male Voice Festival – the first time it has achieved a top three finish.
The choir sang three songs in the competition, including a complex a capella version of What Shall We Do with the Drunken Sailor, and the judges said the choir was ‘committed and energetic’ and ‘a good choir capable of great performances’. The achievement was said to be indicative of the skill of musical director Michael Graham, with the choir for 18 months.
