Ordsall Acappella Singers have been winning awards throughout our 20 year history and this year is no exception. Take a look at some of those special moments here.
Buxton Festival Fringe
The Buxton Festival Fringe began in 1980 to complement the world-renowned Buxton Festival and so celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2019.
OAS have been attending since 2010 and providing cake since 2012, it has become a firm favourite of the choir and highlight of the year.
Winning the Vocal Performance category in 2019 and the Large Ensemble category in 2022.
Alderley Edge Festival
The Alderley Edge Festival formally started in 1911. From humble beginnings, the Festival has grown into one of the biggest in the country. Many prestigious trophies and awards are presented at the Festival, all of which have been kindly donated over many years, from its inception to the present day.
OAS have only competed here for 2 years, but have always recieved a warm welcome.
Winning the Community Choirs class and coming second in the Mixed Adult Voices class in 2023, I think we can safely say we would love to return!
Salford Choral Competition
The Salford Choral Competition, organised by MAPAS (Music and Performing Arts Salford) is unfortunately not currently running, however, we thoroughly enjoyed taking part before the pandemic, even entering a couple of small groups in different categories as well as the main choir.
In 2018 we were 'Highly Commended' by the adjudicator.
