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.”
