This selection was relevant to the categories:

  • Category C8 – Jazz & Pop (The Champions Competition)
  • Category C9 – Gospel and Spiritual (The Champions Competition)

The artistic committee issued two independent selections, one for each of the respective categories. However, the choir will only be required to perform one additional competition set, as  Category GP5 covers Jazz, Pop, Gospel, and Spiritual pieces.

The Grand Prix of Nations competition will take place tonight, Thursday 9th July.

The selection of Barnsley Youth Choir to compete in the Grand Prix of Nations category comes before the actual result of categories C8 & C9 have been announced. The team will find out how they have scored in the C8 & C9 categories tomorrow morning, Friday 10th July.
