Three singing groups in the area are part of a project nominated for a top national music award.

The Stamford Bridge Community Choir, Stamford Bridge Primary School choir, and the Wolds Wonders participated in Classically Yours – an initiative by Orchestras Live in partnership with East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

Classically Yours has been nominated for a Royal Philharmonic Award (audiences and engagement category).

The singers will find out if they have won the award on Wednesday 9 May.

A spokesman for the choir said: “We still can’t quite believe it!

“Rachel Whittaker is the musical director for Stamford Bridge Community Choir, and also the music teacher and choir leader at Stamford Bridge Primary School. Both of these choirs were involved as well as the Wolds Wonders.”
