BARNSLEY Youth Choir remains the highest ranked choir from Great Britain following the release of the world rankings.
The choir ranks fifth in the world on the INTERKULTUR world rankings.
A spokesperson for the choir said: “We’re so happy to be featured in the INTERKULTUR world rankings, and proud of the achievements of all 560 children who are now involved in BYC, and those who support them; volunteers, musicians, choral leaders, sponsors, patrons, supporters and their amazing families.
“BYC remains the highest ranked choir from GB in these rankings - a community choir from Barnsley.
“Thank you to everyone that has supported the organisation over the last 13 years.”
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
