The Orkney Winter Choir and the Orkney Camerata have been shortlisted for the Royal Philharmonic Society Inspiration Award.
The RPS awards are Britain’s most prestigious classical music awards, and the Inspiration Award is given for a remarkable achievement by a non-professional musical group.
The Winter Choir and Camerata have been shortlisted for their CD of Christmas music, as featured in TON previously….
The project raised £3,000 to support orphaned children in Malawi and is the only one of the shortlisted projects with a charitable aim.
The winner will be decided by public vote, and voting is on-line. I’m spectacularly bad with Internet stuff, but even I found it very easy to follow the instructions, once I’d clicked on this link….
The deadline is Thursday September the 30th – so if you‘d like to show your support for some Orkney musicians, please get voting!
