The Lichfield Festival is launching a search to find the 2020 Midlands Choir of the Year.

The new competition is open to adult amateur groups and will see them win a cash prize as well as the chance to perform live at the Lichfield Festival during the 40th anniversary year in 2021.

Organisers hope to see entries from across the musical genres, with semi-final and final rounds will be held live during this year’s festival, before a final at Lichfield Cathedral.

Choirs must complete an online application and send a recorded entry ahead of the closing date on 31st March. For more details on how to enter visit www.mcoty.org

  1. The Choir With No Name gets my full support! I hope they put themselves forward. They make my heart sing. They are Wonderful. From desperation to Hope. I know this is not normal to say this at this stage of the competition but I have no reservations. It is still a competition I know. But whatever the result for me they will be the only choir worth it’s salt. I will be wearing my ‘Choir with no name’ Tee shirt. From the gutter to achieving confidence and self esteem is for me then greatest of achievements. They do not have one or even two mansions like some in Government. They start from the step below the bottom rung on the ladder. I have so much respect for these people. I wish them all the very very best. Whatever, Choir With No Name for me you win. I will be there with you, supporting you if you enrol.

  2. To explain my previous comment I have always remembered ever since the late 80’s, Emmaus, the Homeless Charity, which helped me so much with obtaining accommodation, with employment and training and furniture for the disadvantaged people I was working with in my job. Even with those who seemed the most hopeless. In France I used the Emmaus Centres myself to buy stuff and on occasions took visitors from the UK there. Hence why I am so grateful to the Charity.
